Frank,
Here is a pic of my hinge. It is from our 2014 Parkliner and while similar it does have some differences. I have 2 rings around the outer housing as well as what appears to be serial numbers and manufacture ID. The company is Kobalt and the # is 377347. Hope that helps. I'm out now to spray some rust inhibitor on mine!
Sid

It looks like it was a socket universal joint in a past life. I would clean and lube it and get some white shrink tubing and cover it up. Or slide some clear tubing over it and try to seal the top half then you can keep an eye on it.

Frank, Mine looks like yours. I keep spraying it up with silicone to keep the rust to a minimum. Maybe in the fall if I can get a friend to help I might take the door off.

So, If I get what you are not saying explicitly, a parkliner door hinge could be fabricated relatively inexpensively and easily by a competent welder using a Kobalt flex socket as sold by Lowe's and a couple pieces of steel rod? Using stainless rod, the weakest link would be the flex socket. I think I'll discuss this with my neighbor who is a certified bridge welder. Certainly sounds within his skill set. I guess the only limiting factor of making a $million on this deal would be the limited pool of potential buyers.

hey if he can do it a reasonable price I will grab 2 spare sets just in case for the future! But come to think of it last year someone said that is what the hinge looked like to him.

Sorry Deryk,
I haven't even approached him with the idea, but I know he closed his home welding shop a few years back due to the $1,000,000 liability insurance he had to carry to do any work on trailer hitches.

It's ok Brian lol...I am fairly certain Chandler didn't have these designed from scratch and after looking at some pictures I get some ideas...I am sure they could be made...and probably not insanely expensive either.

Brian and Deryk
I believe that if the upper and lower brackets are reusable then all you need is to remove the top half of a flex socket (as oriented in the attached pic) and machine a barrel pin to peg into the square hole on the socket. The cross pin hole should align to the lower bracket.
My washers seem to be in pristine condition so perhaps they did switch material and upgrade to a better socket
I really can't complain so far about the action of the door. The movement is smooth and it latches effortlessly. I will keep an eye on it though.

Thanks Sid!

I have 4 rusty washers on mine....maybe one day when I have a friend around to help me get the door back on I might try swapping the washers out with something better then the probably mild steel that they are....and take a good look at what is there and how it is put together.
