    with a latch?

    Are you making the screen to a roof mount screen? If it is built as a roof top screen, then it doesnt use that because of the weight of the screen. Most use this metal rod that is shaped like a stop sign and then little metal tabs pieces to latch into the stop sign shapped rod. They do it for durability of the hinge.

    PS: i know what your talking about, its basically a gear system that puts restance on the screen so it opens slowly. I cant recall the name either though. Closest thing would be maybe a damper hinge? http://www.directindustry.com/prod/s...87-382465.html

    Thanks HiJackZX1

    Yeah the gear system
    Where you push the item in it unlocks and
    opens on its own (slowly) and then you can
    push it back in and it locks

    Please does anyone know what its called
    and where I can get them????

    Still cant find it

    They are called 'damper hinge' as far as I know it
    Actually... what you want is a reversed damper hinge.
