Aqueon Versa-Top Replacement Pieces 3/16" wide Hinge
Very easy to install.
After years of taping my old hinges together, I stumbled onto these. They were easy to cut to fit my application. The fitment on my lids was very tight and didn't require any type of adhesive.

These Products Are a God Send
These products really are great. I have a 75 gallon salt water tank that is about 25 to 30 years old with a hood the same age. The hood over the years developed a bow to it and the center of the hood would always sit in the water. The clear plastic/glass area that allows the light to shine through developed a calcium film on it and the area of the hood in the water leaked causing water to get into the light fixture. This tank does not have a center support for the hood like the new tanks have. I was not able to fine a replacement hood due to the new hoods having a two parts which utilizes the center brace. This also included glass top hoods/canopies. So I made my own glass canopy by ordering these parts along with ordering online two pieces of 3/16" plate glass. The glass canopy came together well and looks great. This also allowed me to upgrade to LED lights which makes the fish look great.
The only down side is having to cut the hinge. You need a very sharp blade. I used my fine tooth saber saw blade and it went smoothly. I tried various cutting tools and this worked the best. Remember to measure 2 or 3 times and cut once.

6 ft. 2 in. Plastic Backstrip
This is the only place I can always find the replacement parts I need for my aquariums. As usual, the product is excellent quality...no burs or discoloration in the plastic. Sturdy enough to prevent fish from jumping out but flexible enough so you can cut to size with very little effort.

Quality product at a very affordable cost!
Excellent replacement for my old, weathered and cracked hinge. Takes a sharp tool to cut to length and a little muscle; but well worth the results.
