While collapsible Bimini tops offer boaters a welcome escape from direct sun, deployment and storage can sometimes prove a real chore. Accon Marine 400-Series Quick Release Bimini Top Hinges make it easy for even novice boaters to set up or take down shade structures in minutes.

Crafted from polished 316 stainless steel for exceptional durability and corrosion resistance, Accon 400-Series hinges are compact and low profile. They install with basic tools. For convenience, male fittings remain attached to the top when not in use while bases provide easy, snap-in operation. A simple sliding lock button facilitates quick bimini deployment and removal; there's no small screws or pins that tend to get lost.

Accon Marine offers a dynamic array of Quick Release Bimini Top Hinges to fit an exceptionally wide range of boats and top styles. Its various models accommodate structures needing either pin-style or tube-style fittings. They further enable surface, stud, side or flush-mounting. Accon also has options for installing on railings and even attaching to the square tubing common to pontoon boats.

Bimini straps can also be secured, either with or without turnbuckle adjustment. The tube-style hinges likewise work great for holding flag poles or straight handrails. Matching shims and gaskets facilitate mounting on wider tubing or at deck angles of up to 20° for a professional, finished look.
