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.
