Does anybody know of a store you can buy these at with out having to order off the internet. I really do not want to pay shipping, so I was looking for a type of store that might sell these things. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

acrylic parts

Shipping acrylic parts is not that much. It's rarely over a couple bucks via 1st Class Mail.

One thing to consider with acrylic hinges, is if they break, your kinda screwed, whereas metal doesn't look as nice, but is replaceable and generally stronger/more durable

breaking hinges

I have never had one break. I have multiple vertical tanks with flip down front doors and none have broken. I have had the glass break a couple times, but the hinge was still attached even after the door slammed down and shattered.

I've never had one break either. Seen some pop off the acrylic they were attached to though (cheap competitors acrylic tanks). I don't know of any place that carries acrylic hinges other than distributors. And there is usually a minimum order with them. I order them 100 at a time. Email me if you need a couple or a dozen.
