I have a metal armless futon and i love it but my hinge mechanism on both sides has died. Over a long time the ratchet has warn down and no longer works. This mechanism looks identical to the one designed by "Innovation USA" that is mentioned in your "Evolution of the Futon Mechanism" article (great read). I believe also that the "Triple Ease" shown at the end of the article is a match and can be substituted for the "Innovation USA" design. I based that guess on the mounting holes that I can see in the picture but i would like your opinion or conformation. I have scoured the internet looking for these replacement hinges with little luck, can you help.

Thanks, Michael

If you can shoot over a digital picture to shop@futonplanet.com we can take a look at it for you and at the very least point you in the right direction!
