Boler, bunk bed hinge

Hi All,
I am re-establishing the bunk bed in the Boler. I am needing the proper hinge for the back of the sofa to attach to the ledge so it will swing up. Can anybody tell me what the proper name for the hinge is and where I might find one. All help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I haven't got access to ours at the moment to provide a photo but the hinge would be fairly easy to duplicate.
It would be several days before I can post a photo but Im sure someone else could provide it.
I don't know a supplier.

I think they call it a piano hinge, I think I saw them at Home Depot awhile back, not sure if they were long enough but maybe need 2. Or find a piano repair guy.

Scamp uses a pair of offset chest hinges. One side is shown in this photo. Scamp based their design on the Boler, but I don't know if they are similar enough for this to work for you. Seems like the offset hinges would be easier to work with and just as secure. There is minimal stress on the hinge, since the ledge carries the weight, and the hinge just prevents it from sliding off the ledge.

If you can't find them locally, Scamp stocks them in their parts store.
