Angry Garage Door (plastic) Hinge Broken. Overhead (pics)

Iím trying to locate this plastic (polyethylene?) hinge #3 for an Overhead garage door. Iíve included a pic of the broken hinge (broken portion circled in red) and another thatís not broken #2. I had a technician come out today but he said that he would have to replace the entire door for $1,700.00 because the hinge ďwas riveted.Ē Not a very convincing reason to spend $1,700.00! The door isnít damaged and will open and close as long as I guide it. Local states donít carry anything like this and I canít seem to find what I thought would be a common part online. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Looks like Wayne Dalton pinch resistant hinge, be advised there are different sizes depending where they are positioned on the door. Check the number stamped on it. https://www.amazon.com/Wayne-Dalton-.../dp/B07HJ2HB91

Looking at you picture again I see your hinge has a bend in it, so this may be different. Can you post a picture of it straight on and maybe a picture of a hinge that is not damaged

Your hinges can be replaced. Get new, replacement hinges. With the door closed drill out the rivets holding the broken hinge in place. Hold up your new hinge and see if you can move it over about half an inch. With a pencil mark the mounting hole locations. Drill a pilot hole in your garage door then use screws to mount the hinge. If your hinge also holds a roller then you might need to drill new mounting holes in the hinge so you miss the old rivet locations.

If Doorman can't help (and I'm sure he will be able to), you might try looking on EBay and Amazon. Also Google Garage door hinge.

Yep, never seen that style but it looks similar to Wayne Dalton which I believe was bought by Overhead Door co. Look at the sticker in second picture, find a dealer, order the hinge, rivet it on yourself. You are kind of stuck using that type hinge because of the section design... the mullions don't butt up to each other like a regular overhead door. I would guess that is a pinch resistant design.

Thanks. No original sticker anywhere to be found. The one in the pic was actually placed there by the company who wanted $1,700.00 to replace this one because of the broken hinge.

Know anyone with a machine shop or 3D printer? You can make the piece you need.

There’s a community shop nearby with 3D so if I can’t find this I can have it done. Thanks for the idea.

If you go the 3 D route, you'll need to provide a good sample they can use as a template, and it all depends on their skill in CAD, ability of their printer and what kind of material their printer uses. If they have a high end scanner that will make the job easier.

I'm betting E-bay or Amazon will find it for you.

Hi ABQNAA ,

I'm looking for the SAME hinge! I've got one that just broke on my door and I can't find a model number of the hinger and/or the manufacturer of the door!

Any chance you found one somewhere?

Also, Doorman2722 , the hinge we're referring two is basically a "two-piece hinge".
The "hooks" that ABQNAA is talking about is on the bottom portion of the hinge and that portion mounts to the bottom panel. It's almost as if the top portion (mounted to the top/above panel) "snaps" into the bottom portion and those hooks keep them from separating, but if you were to depress those "keeper tabs" you could separate the two pieces (top and bottom) without removing the rivets etc.

Gosh I'm hoping you can help!

If you can't find one on line check with a Wayne Dalton or an Overhead Door Company Dealer, maybe they have one on a shelf somewhere.

I had overhead check it out and they recommended a new garage door. This is one hinge and no damage to the door. It operates fine but it’s not perfect. I tried several garage door companies and none had that hinge. A real mystery.

Iím not happy that youíre having the same problem but Iím happy that someone else needs this hinge. Iíve talked to several garage door companies but none were helpful. My next attempt was to find a salvage yard locally that recycles these doors and maybe I could pull a couple off myself. Itís crazy. Please met me know if you have any luck.

Have you considered getting a metal hinge and and modifying that to fit.
Probably you will have to cut and bend the strap and maybe drill new mount holes in it but it should be doable.

I’ve considered that but was hoping there was an easier way. Right now I have it rigged together with stainless pins but that won’t last forever.

That is an Amarr hinge, I don't think it will work,but you could try. The side you can see in the picture above goes towards the inside of the garage. the hinge is designed to recess into the section.

Well I asked around in the Garage door world and no one really has a fix for this other than replacing the hinge with an original, or replace the door. That horman hinge may work for the center hinges but you need one with a roller guide on the end hinges. you could try the horman hinge with the bottom 1/2 of an Aamar hinge combination, see the link.Aamar hinge

That door was made by Overhead. I'm off tomorrow but if I remember friday i'll see if they are available. We sold a number of those door but i don't remember any of the hinges breaking. I never liked pinch proof doors for that reason, every manufacturer has their own hinges.

Great, thanks. Even a used hinge from a salvage door would be better that the temporary solution I have in place. Thanks!

Those hinges are obsolete, so used would be the only way to get one. if it was my door i would take one off the middle, and put that in place of the broken one till i found one. Good luck

Any luck with this one

Hey All, I know I'm late to the game but was there ever a suitable replacement hinge found? I have broken a couple of these too and cannot seem to find them anywhere. I called the local Overhead Door dealer and they are no longer made and a new door is their only option.

Anyone ever find a solution to this? My wife just ran into the garage door and knocked a couple of these hinges out of place. TIA

Erik B,
OP here. I’m still looking, or waiting it for someone else to have more luck. My fix has worked fine so I haven’t had to have someone machine the part which was my next step. If you decide to do that then let me know. Probably cheaper to have several made instead on just the one I need. Good luck.

HInge


This is what I used on my garage door. Made new holes for rivet and cut the excess. Installed it two years ago, it is still working
