I’m making a set of corn hole boards and looking for a way to keep them together when not being used. I’ve seen hinges that seperate from the “pin” that connect both base plates. One side of the base plate has a hook or claw that slips under the pin and holds the two base plate together. On the other end of the corn hole board I thought I’d put a couple of latches to hold the two halves together.

I have seen these hinges I’m looking for, but can’t seem to find anything like them on-line. If anyone has any suggestions that might work I’m open to any suggestions. Thanks!

called ‘loose pin hinges’
used for storm shutters

Simpler than a loose pin hinge is a “separable hinge” AKA casket hinge. No parts to lose:
