Types of Hinges

- Mar 18, 2019-


The most common type of hinges you will encounter are Barrel hinges. These hinges work similarly to door hinges and are one of the oldest types of hinges found on glasses. Standard hinges are made up of barrels that fit into each other like a zipper with a small screw that slides into the middle to keep the barrels in place. This allows the temples to move in and out while still keeping them firmly attached to the frame front.
