2 Finger to 3 Finger Hinge is a connection between the paired parts of the older hinge system. This system has been partially supplanted by the Click Hinge. These hinges are comprised of "fingers" the same thickness as a plate, which extend horizontally or vertically from a plate or tile. The 2 finger end has small rounded protrusions on the sides of the fingers, which engage shallow depressions on the three finger end of the mating part.

The connection allows rotation (with friction) around the axis drawn through center of the bumps and hollows of the fingers.

Note:This is a Connection System article and should be illustrated with pictures or renderings of the connection type, details, and should give dimensions in LDU of the key parts of the connection where that makes sense.

Connection System articles use the ConnectionTypeBox template, comments welcomed on whether all the necessary information is there, see its talk page for more usage info or to comment.
