Hey funwork,


Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!


I'm not sure how your coffin is designed, but when I did my Halloween coffin made from paint sticks last year, I used small 1" 4 hole hinges placed on the inside of the coffin to give the coffin a more finished look. Again, I realize yours is different, but you can click on the image below to view how I installed mine.

I used very short screws and glue to hold the hinges together. At least with mine, I planned out how and where the hinges would go before committing to installing them. I'd advise you to do the same.


We carry a fairly large selection of hinges sold in our hardware department. Just measure the thickness of the coffin as well as how it will be opened. This will determine what kind of hinges to use. Even regular ones will work; there really isn't a special one to be used if you plan out everything properly.


Let me know if you have any addtional questions,
