Accon Marine Shims and Gaskets Create Polished Appearance

Accon Marine's quick release bimini hinges.

Utilizing mounted hardware, such as Accon Marine’s Quick Release Bimini Hinges, doesn’t mean boat owners must sacrifice a polished and sleek look aboard. Accon’s Shims, Curved Shims and Gaskets enable owners to simply place bimini hinges where they’re needed without sacrificing style.

Accon’s 401 Shims allow owners to mount the company’s Quick Release Bimini Hinges at a 10° angle. Two shims can be used for a 20° angle. They’re available in neutral or black and made of UV-resistant plastic.

The 401-S Curved Shims are great when mounting the Quick Release Bimini Hinges to 1.9″, 2.36″ and 3″ diameter tubing. Silver to match both stainless steel and aluminum, they’re made of UV-resistant plastic.

The company’s 401-G Gaskets create a more finished look when mounting the hinges and separate dissimilar metals. They’re available in white or black.

The Shims, Curved Shims and Gaskets are all easy to install. Owners simply place the shim or gasket on the curved or straight surface below the bimini hinge and fasten with two #10 screws.

Accon’s 401 Shims and 401-S Curved Shims retail for $3.13 each, while the 401-G Gaskets are priced at $1.15 each.
