That IS a regular foot measurement. It's "linear" feet, meaning "in a line" (as opposed to square feet or cubic feet).

So, just measure in a line (in feet), and use decimals for the inches. 3" is 1/4 of a foot, or .25 feet....

hope this helps.

Be sure to get more than you think you will need. I've found what I measure and what really fits are not the same.

Christi, the bolt and nut on the Scamp hinge is plain-ole steel. It's recommended to replace with stainless, so you don't get rust running down the door at a later date. And use stainless to mount the hinge to both door and trailer.

That's right. That bolt and nut are steel. Take them to your local hardware store and have someone help match them up to stainless. That's what you want to use.

The spring is plain steels too. It's taken a couple years for mine to start rusting, but it's not as wet here.
