This Canopy hinge designed for 1/3 and larger Sailplanes and is made from machined aluminum and stainless steel.

It allows the canopy to be raised and removed to allow access to your sailplanes cockpit.  The main body glues to the underside of the fuselage and the receiver glues to the underside of the canopy.
