Improved McFarlane design!
Cabin Door Hinge Pins
Don't trust those old brass pins!
Bent or Straight Hinges - Only from McFarlane!
Ensure the right fit for your Cessna!
Cessna legacy airplanes, built prior to 1979, feature a door post skin that angles inward (toward the front edge of the door). Aircraft with this bend require a hinge with a 5° bend for correct installation. Later models and new production aircraft do not have this inward angle and use a straight hinge.
McFarlane manufactures both bent and straight hinges. We HIGHLY recommend verifying your door hinges before ordering. When in the field, replicating the 5° bend from a straight hinge is very difficult and rarely correct. Let us take away the worry and provide you with the correct hinges today!
Please note that McFarlane does not have exact serial number information as to when the hinges went from bent to straight.
The Cessna doors have tremendous leverage on the forward door seals. Door hinge and hinge pins can easily be over stressed and fail if incorrect door seals are installed. Always use approved door seals that are designed for your aircraft.
Maintenance Tip for Door Hinge Replacement:
To install new hinges, temporarily attach the replacement hinges to the door using temporary fasteners. Install the door and hinge pins. Verify the door alignment with the door opening. The leading edge of the door should be approximately flush with the adjacent door post skin. Minor bends can be made to the upper hinges to perfect the door fit. Please reference the ICA.
