Walk In Cooler Hinges

jeh1856paApril 18, 2008

I recently purchased an old wooden walk in cooler door which I am going to use to refinish my basement. They tossed in two heavy iron hinges that were not originally on the door, but I plan to use. The jamb side of the hinge has a single hole through it with a large pin on the back.

Were these from a walk in cooler, and how do I mount them? I am guessing they were designed to be adjustable some how.

That single pin is a safety hinge. The pin is threaded on the inside of the walk-in and there is a large nut with a handle attached so that if someone is accidentally locked in the walk-in they can unscrew the hinge from the inside and push the door out.
