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.
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.

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.
