I have to wonder about anything called a "living butt hinge" :roll:

Norm, those look to be made of the same material as their harsh environment "living" plastic piano hinge...as such, it would probably hold up to the weather just as well...I have no idea if it would resist sagging sufficiently ...at the least, I would go with the 250300 model and possibly use 3 of them...............

I can see these plastic hinges working for the hatch as MJ and others have suggested; however, I wonder about the door application and the range of motion is so much larger. A hatch opens maybe 35-40 degrees, but doors do nearly 180 every time they open. THe fatigue of the plastic hinge will be a function of the stress and opening up the hinge a full 180 degrees will raise the peak stress a fair amount. I'm not saying it wouldn't work, just wondering... :thinking:
