Graduated hinges are very important for the functionality of garage doors. They are called as such because each pair has a specific location in garage doors. A pair goes at the bottom, two at the top, a couple of #2 hinges, another couple of #3 hinges and five #1 hinges. The National Hardware V7608 is one of these hinges and usually fits the no.1 hinges on roll-up doors.
Hinges are one of the garage door parts that are used to attach the garage door onto the wall and allow each section to pivot as the door opens. They also enable the garage door to close into a wedge. Worn out or broken hinges can affect the opening and closing of your garage door. Worst, your door may not open at all. This is why hinges must be checked regularly and replaced if and when necessary with products like the National Hardware V7608.
