Garage Door Hinges

Garage door hinges are embossed with a number representing the size of the hinge. Old or rusted hinges are sometimes hard to decipher due to age and wear.  If you place your hinge on a level ground, and measure the distance from the ground to the center of the top hole, that measurement can be referenced using the chart below.
