Door Hinges / October 1, 2018 / Yvette Guerette
Selecting The Proper Door Hinges Now that you appreciate the invention of door hinges you need to make sure you have the right ones at work in your home. First make sure you have enough to do the job that needs to be done on your door. For the most part you will be able to choose between 2 or 3 door hinges on most doors. In some cases the door will come with the set number of hinges. In other cases you should think about the weight of the door before deciding on the number of hinges that should be used. While wood doors are generally able to be held with two hinges (unless they are very heavy wood or oversized door) if you have a steel door you need to make sure the hinges are strong enough to hold it.
Its a fairly easy task to change the hinges on your door but it is somewhat time consuming. This is something that will dramatically change the look of your door and it is something that you definitely want to consider changing. Alright lets go over the different types of hinges that are available. Hinges have holes in them and they usually come in two different amounts of holes - two holes or three holes. The three hole hinges are going to increase the stability of the door. So if your door is heavy than you will want a three holed hinge over the two holed hinge.
Removing a door with a two hole hinge is going to require two helpers so you might want to be sure you have a friend their to hold the door for you as you begin unscrewing it. Another choice you are going to have is whether or not that you want a removable pin or a fixed pin. This is going to depend more on your needs. A removable pin is going to make it easy for you to take the door off the hinges without unscrewing the hinge from the door jamb. You can easily begin shopping online and looking at all of the different designs that there are for door hinges you might actually be amazed at the choices.
