A hinge serves as a vital connection point between two solid objects, permitting a controlled angle of rotation between them. When two objects are joined by a hinge, they pivot around a fixed axis, restricting rotational movement to one direction (typically). Hinges can be fashioned from flexible or rigid materials, commonly including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, plastic, and more.
