Do you ever wish your stake sides would fold down?

First Hingeable Stake

Patented Hinged Stake with Automated Lock

Introducing a new chapter in stake-post evolution, rights-holder HingePost has made a dramatic break with traditional designs.

This newly patented device for flatbeds has an automated locking mechanism and speed of operation in folding downward 180°.

Necessity: The Mother of Invention

HingePost is based in Dahlonega, Georgia, and was established in early 2023 by Bobby Anderson. The concept was motivated by the desire to accelerate loading times and, also, to contain the payload safely.
