TYPES OF LEAVES
- Not Swagged - Barrel sets
above the leaves which are flat
or horizontal when opened.
- A method of forming either or
both leaves up to or beyond, one
half the pin diameter.
Half Swaged - Where
only one leaf is formed up to
one half the pin diameter.
Full Swaged - Where
one leaf is formed around to the
full pin diameter. When closed
both leaves are parallel.
Swag - Where one leaf
is formed with the effect of
reverse hinge assembly. Leaves
cannot be closed to lay
- Where either or both leaves
are formed away from the outside
of the pin. When closed in
parallel position the distance
between the leaves measures
larger than the diameter of the
Leaves Half Swaged -
Each leaf is formed to one half
the pin diameter leaving minimum
clearance between them when
