This is the bar your letter box plate hinges on, also known as a hinge pin. This is an item that we will cut to size for you. If you would like us to compress one end please let us know when you place your order, otherwise your bar will be sent out without. The price is per inch so if you require a piece 6 inches long please add quantity 6 to your basket. Please understand the website cannot process an order of a decimal quantity. If you require a piece 3.5" long please order quantity 4 and put a note in the notes section informing us of the decimal length. 3mm steel or 4mm steel. Any questions or advice, please just call us!
Questions and answers of the customers
Q by the photo of the rod I cannot tell if it is cylindrical or flattened at any point. I need a 4m... answer nowA
Hi Mr Smyth, Thanks for your question! The rod is cylindrical, we will only flatten an end if requested. I hope that answers your question. Kindest regards Rebecca @ Langbridges.
Q Does a 4mm rod make the flap stand out would a 3mm rod be better so the flap hangs better ? answer nowA
Thanks for your question Mr Naylor, the size of bar is dictated by the hole size of your hinge point. There will be 2 sets of 'loops' that line up the flap to the surround. If you are to put in a 3mm where a 4mm should be it will be a very loose fit and would probably allow a draught through. The easiest way to tell is to either measure the hole size or measure the bar that you are replacing. I hope that's a help! Kind regards, Rebecca @ Langbridges.
Hi there, unfortunately it seems the steel letter hinge pin is only suitable for standard letterboxes for wooden doors. So sorry not to help! Thanks, Rebecca @ Langbridge.
