A fix for your broken Tektronix hinge caps!
The Tektronix hinge caps on 4XX series scopes are easily broken or lost. Are yours? Does your scope have an unsightly hinge showing where the handle attaches to the scope body? This product is a replacement hinge cap for Tektronix 465, 465B, 475, and 475A oscilloscopes. It replaces Tektronix part number 200-0602-00. Although it’s not 100% identical in appearance to the original part (color is black, and some cosmetic differences), it fits perfectly. It is a darn sight better than looking at the innards of the hinge mechanism! These hinge caps are made of tough ABS plastic.
DOES NOT FIT 465 models with serial numbers below 250000. These early versions of the 465 model used a different part number hinge cap (200-0602-01), which I’ve tried and found not to fit. Models 465B, 475, and 475A are all compatible as their service manuals (for all part numbers) call out the compatible hinge cap part number.
If you have an early version 465, I have it on my TO DO list to modify the design to create a replacement for them. Please message me if you’re interested and I’ll let you know when I think I’ll have that available.
