Easy-Open, Easy-Load Spring Hinge

Easy to Open

  • Easy-Unobstructed Loading allows easy access to Kiln.
  • The lid, when open, is tilted away from the kiln opening allowing greater access to the interior.
  • There are no lid supports in the way when loading your kiln.
  • You can safely and easily load from both sides. Anyone who has tried to load a large kiln with a lot of work can fully appreciate this great feature.
  • Double spring eliminates side torque on lid.

Less Chance of Lid Damage

  • A lighter lid also reduces lid and kiln lip damage.

Safe

  • A plunger-type safety latch holds the lid in place while it is open. There is a safety pin with a spring plunger (to keep it in place) that goes into a hole on the side of the hinge when loading the kiln and when the lid is in the up position.
  • Also the lid, when in the up position, is resting in an angled position behind the center of gravity. This is very unlike other kinds of kiln lids.
  • Ceramic handle stays cool.
  • Clasp holds lid down when firing.

Stable Construction

  • The hinge extends over three kiln sections and ties the kiln together for stability.

Corrosion & Heat Resistant

  • The body of the hinge is made from stainless steel.
