If you own a folding table or tray requiring additional support and stability, consider our butler tray and card table hinges. The former allows a tray top to fold out to a 90-degree angle, and snaps flat; a spring-loaded mechanism holds the tray in place, regardless of an up or down position. Previously, butler tray hinges were exclusively for such furniture, but in the present, they are requested and built into computer drawers, which support a keyboard or laptop. The hinge allows the laptop or keyboard to fold out of sight when not in use.

Card table hinges, on the other hand, are better-suited to antique or reproduction furniture. The hinge is installed into the edge, allowing the top to fold out or double over on top.

Although varying in size, butler tray and card table hinges are mortised, or installed into the surface of the wood. For modifying your table or tray, choose from five brass finishes.

All good.
   Wow, what service!, January 24, 2023  By Anonymous (Sydney, Australia)(Verified)
I decided to make a side table with rotating top. Noting that I needed special hinges I ordered them online from Horton, to allow time to have them sent. They were with me in one week. They look very well made and beautifully finished. What service!

   Keeping Federal Period Standards for Card Table, September 4, 2021  By Larry (FORT WORTH, TX)(Verified)
Have just finished Federal Period Demilune Inlayed Card Table for entry into Texas Annual Furniture Show in Kerrville, Texas Nov/Dec 2021. The side hinges were the preferred hinges for the folding top and along with the 1800's hand carved hinge, add to the replication accuracy. The Horton hinges were very important for this project. They were a challenge to get just right but will swing easily for generations to come. Thanks Horton for a beautiful quality product.

Card table hinges - cannot find them in any brick and mortar store - were delivered without any problems.

Despite the USPS backlog, the hinges arrived on schedule. Well made and a good match for my nineteenth century demilune card table! Nice workmanship...

   H53 Card Table Hinge, August 23, 2015  By Lawrence Morse (Ivoryton, CT)
Excellent quality
About 1 and 1/2 times the size of the original, so needed to expand inset in leaves of folding Victorian Game table I was restoring.
   Good quality hinges, May 4, 2015  By Anonymous (Auburn Hills, MI)
Top quality hinges, easy to install with a router/dremel and wide base followed by a chisel. Just measure the hinges and lay them out with marking gauges rather than trying to trace the hinge on. Hinges operate very smoothly and are able to support the weight of the top when open and propped against a wall. Would recommend.
   very nice, July 27, 2014  By Anonymous (Pittsburgh, PA)
I had to make some minor adjustment but it is well made and it was easy to trim
