Southco's Detent Hinges offer multiple design advantages with clean external looks, corrosion-resistant construction, and a full 180° range of motion that provides easy access to the compartments or enclosures on your boat. Doors and hatches are held open at a predetermined angle, either 80, 115, or 150 degrees. With these angles there are three different positioning torque values. The torque defines how much force is needed to move the hinge from both it's closed and detent positions. Also available is a no-detent free swinging hinge. The hinge tube is offered in either hardened steel or stainless steel, perfect for marine environments. Screw covers are included.

The C6 Detent hinges are used on some adventure touring bikes, such as the BMW GS series panniers.

Reviewer: FussyShopper from NORTH OLMSTED, OH United States  
These Southco hinges are an exact replacement for the radio box on my Grady.  There are 3 different hinge ratingsbased on the weight of your door. These are the heaviest for my overhead compartment. Quickly shipped and perfect transaction.

1 of 5 Very slow delivery August 27, 2020
Reviewer: Ron Olson from Langley, BC Canada  
I think the product I ordered will be perfect but I have yet to see it. You shipped it on July 12 and it is almost September. The tracking number said that the parcel went to Miami and then on to the next destination and last I saw it was back in Miami.
Meanwhile I am getting by with duct tape and zip ties. Not a good advertisement for your company.
Thanks for the chance to submit a review.

1 of 5 Buyer Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Stephan Remesch from Havre de Grace, MD United States  
Cannot get a hold of this company to do an exchange. Email is invalid. Phone number gets you no where. Product is no good to me and looks like I’m  stuck with it. You’ve been warned! Don’t no how they can run a business like this. Karma will get them.

5 of 5 Couldn't ask for more October 17, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from CA, United States  
Happy customer here! I ordered replacement hinges for my R1150GS Adv cases. The parts here cost 25% of the quoted BMW prices, are identical, were well packaged and shipped very quickly. What more could I ask for? Thanks!
