Try the Baddest, Heaviest Duty Self-Closing Gate Hinge Available

While other companies claim to have developed self-closing hinges for heavy duty applications, SHUT IT believes that its BadAss Self-Closing Hinge is the first hinge to actually qualify for such a distinction. “While other companies have tried to add heavy duty hardware to their existing hinge line up, heavy-duty is all that we have ever done,” states Skip Bengtson of SHUT IT. “The BadAss Self-Closing Hinge is simply the latest great product from a company that is known for its quality.”

The BadAss Self-Closing Hinge uses the same bearing technology found in all of SHUT IT's existing products. Because of this, the hinge has the same load capacity as their ORIGINAL BadAss hinge – 2,000 lbs and has been tested to self close gate up to 300 lbs. Additionally, like all of SHUT IT's other hinges, its self-closing hinge is adjustable during and after installation, so that you can always have a perfectly flush installation.

“For the BadAss Self-Closing Hinge, we wanted to use a closing mechanism, that was not only durable, but easily adjustable,” states Bengtson. “We decided a torsion style closer offered the best durability and ease of adjustment.” The company worked with an independent manufacturer of torsion springs to develop a custom spring that is capable of closing both heavy and light gates while not creating excess torque, which causes slamming in lighter gate installations. Additionally, SHUT IT has included 5 tension settings on the hinge, so that each installation can close with the proper speed.

In addition to its strength and ease of use, the BadAss Self-Closing Hinge will be easy on the accounting ledger. The cost of the BadAss Self-Closing Hinge Set (which includes both the BadAss Self-Closing Hinge and a “slave” ORIGINAL BadAss Hinge) will be significantly less than a hydraulic closer or the competitors' self-closing hinge solution.
