    stainless hinges can be purchased at the local hardware store. Be sure to put silicone in the screw holes before replacing the screws.

    Assuming that your hinge is plastic and its completely broken all the way through there isn't much you can do to save the hinge. There are metal ones available at the hardwear store. If your going to replace one you might as well replace both. Make sure that whichever hinge you choose is rust resistant. Oh and don't forget a very strong glue. Don't rely on just the screws.

    Hi Wittl, if the cooler is plastic this may be a job for good old duck tape. They make it pretty now! Can you post a picture of the broken hinge? That would really help folks give you a better answer. Best of luck!

    Wittl37 - Assuming that your hinge is plastic it can be repaired. There is a bonding agent that use ultra violet to fuse the two pieces together. I have seen it on TV, Walgreens and Home Depot. Try this first its under $10.00
