Don't go ape over busted hinges
Of course the first things to break on your cooler, tool chest or carry case are the hinges. Instead of throwing them out or monkeying with duct tape, try this. Gorilla hinges give you a sheet of ultra durable, super flexible polyethylene-backed polyester (same stuff used in conveyor belts) that can bend almost indefinitely without cracking. Simply screw the stainless steel hardware through the hinge and included washer plates and get back to work. Includes two 4"W x 1½"H hinges and all hardware.
