Gate Hinge Reversible Black 35 x 490 x 185mm
Not bad, but...
I haven't had this out of the packaging, but it seems pretty decent.
The price is about middle of the range for this item, but it would be better if at least the coach bolts came with the hinge. Sadly no fixings come with this so you then need to faff about finding suitable fixings.
The packaging lets this item down badly - given that it comes all rattling together in a single bag, the black paint finish was already chipped when I picked mine up, so may not be a good buy if you are hoping to fit it without applying your own finish.
It is usual to wrap the hinge plates separately, or tape them to the hinges prior to shipping; Screwfix chose to do otherwise for some reason!

Sturdy and strong
I bought this for a smallish garden gate after the previous hinges rusted through. These are much bigger and stronger than my old hinges, probably overkill for my small gate, but they work well. My only criticism is that the holes in the brackets in which the hinges sit are not open at the bottom so rainwater pools in them. I think this is likely to make them rust sooner than if the water could drain out.
