I have seen floating round the net somewhere a servo hinge for standard hobby servos. I searched Trossen and was not able to locate such an item. I am currently using hitec hs-322hd servos and need a way to hinge the back side. Did I overlook them on the site or are they perhaps discontinued?

another Q does Trossen plan to carry any cytron products?

Thank you
Jay

What do you mean exactly by "servo hinge"?

Very limited use, we don't carry them anymore. This is what we offer for mounting solutions for Hobby Servos: http://www.trossenrobotics.com/c/hobby-servos-for-robotics.aspx

Not for the hs-322hd but for the hs-645mg:

Thats a pretty sweet hinge, I like that it screws to the servo, not just sticky stuff! Thanks for the link Chaosmann.

I made the below simple low tech pivoting support opposite the servo horn. Used hot glue to glue the nut to the servo. Hot glue can usually be cleanly removed if desired. I tested this particular one and it supported a 10 pound weight without comming lose.

Here's a hinge I built awhile ago for an 805bb mega servo. I think it had some promise. Though now I'd probably replace the bottom plate with and aluminum sheet.

Thanks for the great input! I had debated modding the actual servos. This has given way to new ideas about crafting some custom brackets.
Alex, sorry for posting out of place, thanks for redirecting :)
