In case you have an interior swing door, here are some tips on how to adjust it. A swing-hinge door opens from both directions. The door does not have a traditional door knob that you must turn to open the door. Just push against the door and it swings open. These doors are ideal for openings between kitchens and dining rooms; especially when you have dishes of prepared food in your hands. When you find the door is not opening as easily as it once did, make an adjustment with basic tools to get things swinging again.
Our team is always on call to answer any questions or come and service your doors.
First, locate the swing door’s adjustment mechanism. Some doors have a mechanism on all the hinges; while others have the adjuster on just one hinge. Remove the plate covering the adjustment mechanism on each hinge, using a screwdriver. Save the screws. Not all hinges have a covering. Pull out the pin holding the adjustment mechanism in place. Depending on the hinge; you might be able to pull it out with your fingers, or you might need a pair of pliers to remove it. Save the pin. Twist the adjustment mechanism to the right or left so a different hole lines up with the pin’s opening. Insert the pin back into the hole.
When the adjustment mechanism is on top of the hinge, turn the mechanism to the left to increase tension; and to the right to decrease it. For mechanisms installed on the bottom of the hinge; turn the mechanism to the right to increase tension and to the left to decrease it. Repeat these steps for all the adjustment mechanisms. Operate the door to see if you adjusted it to suit your tastes. When necessary, take the pins out and put them in different holes; until the spring hinge door operates to your satisfaction. Replace the plates covering the swing door adjustment mechanism. Tighten the screws with a screwdriver.
