Recommended Posts

 I realized the other day that the rubber hinges on my aquarium glass lids were starting to have small tears and seperation probaly caused by moisture and regular use.  Is there a diy replacement hinge i can use to fix that? Ive seen these on amazon and think they should be ok. Anyone have thoughts or ideas?

I personally would use this product. https://www.amazon.com/Perfecto-Aquarium-Glass-Replacement-Hinge/dp/B001TI2G2W/ref=asc_df_B001TI2G2W/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=692875362841&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11192813554382179932&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9015345&hvtargid=pla-2281435178338&psc=1&mcid=0c8f49cbf78d335e9c2cb6590a4ea3e7&hvocijid=11192813554382179932-B001TI2G2W-&hvexpln=73&gad_source=1

Ryo Watanabe has a video where he's making DIY lids:

He's using polycarbonate plastic greenhouse sheeting, not glass, but he just uses a very strong double-sided tape to attach stainless steel hinges, at the 6:35 mark. I imagine that would work on glass, too.
