Hinges with 2x2 top and panel

Sometimes you don't have many SNOT options, and in times like those it can be nice to know that you're able to create a sturdy 90 degree stud rotation by using hinges and panels. The bottom offset of this technique differs by a few LDUs compared to some of LEGO's pre-made parts, which can be both useful and a hindrance.

To find the different pieces needed for this technique you can search LEGO's online Pick-a-Brick for the design ID's. We link other market places directly on each individual piece page, which you can find below.
