Good hinges but sticky threads, no screws
from Chicago, IL
Comments about Heavy-Duty Hinge Clamps:
These hinges appear to be very similar to the hinges on the screen press kit I purchased several years ago from Blick, and those have worked out well. These hinges worked well once I found the right screws for them. I purchased a 5/8" thick MDF fiberboard from a hardware store and found that #12 screws 3/4" are appropriate for these hinges. They worked well printing about 100 t-shirts in one session recently. They seem sturdy enough to me, but I was only doing one color, no registration and multi-color and I don't care about perfection to be honest. Plus I screwed them in kind of wonky, so for me precision is less important than how they hold up. My only gripe is that with one of the hinge's screw down tighteners was really tight and sticky. I had to re-do it a couple of times to get the threads to work properly and go down as much as I needed to the screen. So for the fact that is doesn't come with screws (as none of these do - stupid), and the sticky threads I give it four stars.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The swivel at the end of the thumb screw is always binding.

These are very cheap. They will work for smaller one color work. Beyond one color small stuff you should choose something else. I am replacing them immediately. Even for one color work with a larger screen I see things are not centered due to the large amount of give these hinges have. I wish I had not purchased them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

no good for registration too sloppy
is ok for 1 color work and any thing that is not close will not register tight work

Will get the job done but don't recommend for high volume work.

Not that heavy duty
from Rexburg, ID
I have been screen printing for about 4 years, so I have used other equipment, and I understand how essential good registration is. I bought these realizing they were cheap and might not be as good as what I was used to. Turns out they are worse than expected; the actual hinge is not crafted very tight or smooth, and it wiggles around. Needless to say, a little wiggle = lots of bad registration problems and inconsistent prints.If you care about tight registration on nice big prints and runs, don't buy these.I would be curious to know if the other two brands are the same as this since they are in the same price range.
