Ready-to-fit hinges turn doors into wings
On the Smart Roadster and Daihatsu Copen

Daihatsu Copen: new hinges turn the doors into wings.

APN, PR,
30 March 2007.

It is good to be able to open the top at each nice weather opportunity.

But how about adding an extra "airborne" feeling with a couple of wing doors?

This is the new offer from LSD: wing doors for the Smart Roadster and Daihatsu Copen, with security proved by side-crash test.

The most interesting part is that the LSD wing door hinges are mounted directly at the points of the original doors, without any welding or repainting for the doors or the A-pillar. These door fittings come also with a German TV certificate certifying that the LSD wing doors meet all safety standards.

Compared to some other retrofit sets for wing doors, the LSD fittings made in Germany are more impressive due to their absolutely sound engineering and the highest-possible standard of quality.

In addition, a testing laboratory accredited by the German Federal motoring bureau (Kraftfahrtbundesamt ) proved in a side-crash test, that the LSD-solution (patented in Germany) is as secure as a door assembled in the series production.

In other words, the occupants safety is guaranteed by the LSD door fittings in a side-crash complying with rule 96/27/EG.

Perfect fit is another convincing feature, thanks to the ability to make three-dimensional adjustments.

The LSD door fittings are mounted directly at the points where the original doors were removed.

With the added fittings, the otherwise unchanged doors open first outward and then gently glide upward and stop.

Adjustable buffers prevent the doors from being opened too wide or from falling downward or inward when open. A simple grip is all it takes to close the door.

On the one hand, the LSD solution allows you to open the door in a outward motion with an aperture angle of approx. 30; on the other hand, it also allows you to swing the wing door upward, and all that without any great exertion.

The LSD door fittings are available from LSD or special dealers. Market-specific prices, shipping costs and a constantly updated list of applications - or inquiries - about the LSD door fittings can be obtained from the LSD website.
