When mine broke, I used velcro to form a hinge. It has worked for 4 years and it gives when I overstuff the trunk. I have had to replace the velcro once in this time because the glue gave way, but not that big of a deal. The velcro is easy to fix, no drilling, no mess. I cleaned up the areas with some alcohol, stuck the grip sid on the bike parts and stuck the fuzzy side to the two parts and there you go.
Just another alternative.
