A revolutionary Dock Coupler, with all the parts self contained, it offers a simple process that supports the ramp loads in alignment while actuating from above decking with a single tool.
After spending a cold fall day removing docks for the winter, and ending up with swollen fingers and strained muscles, Andy Assinck decided there must be an easier way. He recognized the need to develop a dock coupling system that would be self-supporting and self-aligning, that would allow most individuals to remove and or install a dock with ease.
After experimenting with many designs, he finally came up with the HitcHinge, a revolutionary dock coupler with totally self-contained parts (no loose parts to drop in the lake!) offering a simple process that supports the ramp loads in alignment while you tighten it in.
The HitcHinge system eliminates working in between dock segments, as well as eliminating the stress of maintaining the loads, elevations, and alignments, which are all necessary to insert or remove pins without dropping parts, as with a typical dock hinge.
HitcHinge is based in Canada and ships to the US.
