Hinge connector plates

Hinge plates are used on the top chord of a truss, allowing the chord to be folded down for transportation and raised on site without losing alignment and plane. Eagle Metal hinge plates benefit both the manufacturer and the framer as they eliminate the need for piggyback trusses.
