by jerry lebeau

What is Hinge Mask?

Hinge Mask is a revolutionary product that was created to protect door and frame hinges from paint in merely seconds.

HOw Did Hinge Mask Come to be?

Hinge Mask was invented because we our also a fourth generation union paint contractor.  We wanted to decrease our labor time and improve our results when painting doors, so after many months of testing we came up with our patented Hinge Mask.  It has saved us thousands of hours in labor over the years and we credit it for helping us stay busy even when the economy took a turn for the worse.

Why should I use Hinge Mask?

Because it is 7-10 times faster than any alternative way of protecting hinges from paint.  Not only is Hinge Mask® much faster, it is also much more professional...

Cons of using a drill: Much slower than Hinge Mask, losing screws or hinges, damaging or scratching the hinge, incorrectly setting the hinge

Cons of using any type of tape: Much slower than Hinge Mask, paint bleeding through, paint peeling off with the tape, wasting money on non reusable tape

If you mask off hinges with tape or remove hinges with a drill you are simply wasting time and money.

How do I use Hinge Mask?

  1.  Remove door from frame with either a spring loaded pin remover or a hammer and nail (take 30 seconds to a minute to remove a door).
  2. Apply Hinge Mask by pinching near each corner until you feel or hear it snap closed
  3. Paint door and or door frame
  4. Allow paint to dry
  5. Remove Hinge Mask by pushing the "tab" on each side of the Hinge Mask® to  disengage the locking mechanism.
  6. Store for future use

Can I Spray Paint without paint getting on the hinges?

Yes!  We have sprayed doors thousands of time with Hinge Mask® and it definitely keeps the hinges protected from spray painting.



Is Hinge Mask reusable?

Yes it is durable and reusable, we recommend replacing your Hinge Mask after around 25 uses.

Do I need to clean Hinge Mask after each use?

No you don't need to clean Hinge Mask after each use.  If paint has begun to build up on Hinge Mask you can simply peel the paint off.
