Cheoy Lee Hatch Hinges

Hey all... I am searching for a pair of replacement teak hatch hinges... cheoy lees being famous for their "open both directions" hatches means they have the little removable pins that one can swap over to the other set of hinges if you want. one set of mine lost the extensions for the pins ( previous owner must have had a windy day!) Any idea where I can get some replacements?

We've got the same kind of hinges on our Vagabond.

I've never seen replacements advertised in bronze -- but I've never done a full-out search either.

Suncor stainless makes this one in (duh) stainless.



If you are looking for just the pins (couldn't tell from your OP), then you might be fetter off calling around to companies that specialize in bronze fittings and seeing if you can have some fabricated or getting the stock to make your own. Another alternative may be to get an oversized bronze machine screw and filing the threads off to make your own pin. You could drill a hole in the end to insert a round stainless cotter ring, or depending on your skills even the little bronze flapper stop.

oh no .. the reference to bronze was about the toerail chock for mooring/anchor lines... part of my toe rail was broken off in the past and took the chock with it... no the hatch hinges are no bronze.. probably the same as yours... thanks for the reference to the suncor solution..that's a great idea. if these old ones are breaking up I should just do all 8 hinges anyway

I read a tip in a book by Bill Siefert to exchange those pins for long hasp padlocks. The thought was that the pins make for an easy way to break in to your boat. I haven't made the change, yet, but am planning on it.

Roger,

I guess it depends on how secure the locking dogs inside the hatch may be. A padlock will eliminate the pins as a weak point, but how difficult would it then be to simply remove the screws attaching the hinge to the hatch? Couple of minutes max with a screwdriver, or even faster with a screw gun.

As with most locks, you're better off beefing up the security on the inside rather than on the outside.

No doubt, but sometimes all you need to do is make it a little bit easier to rob the next guy. And you could also go with a torque or roberts head screw. Most thieves wouldn't have either tool on them.
