Door Hinges / October 11, 2018 / Yvette Guerette
The door which is adorned at the main entrance of a house needs to be particularly secure as children often want to run out of the house at the slightest chance. Again coming back to commercial purposes you should more careful about coordinating the door knobs with the hinges. This gives a good impression about you and your organization. It shows that you are willing to go that extra mile for your clients as your interiors depict that you care about the image that youre projecting and it is a definite plus. If you were to look for door hinges in the market you would be baffled by the variety.
Alternatively if you can identify the brand name and model number of your hinge you can contact the manufacture directly to determine if theres a clip-on attachment is designed to work with your hinge style. If so they will be able to direct you to the nearest distributor in your area. If you determine that the upgrade is not available there is an alternative discussed in the later part of this article. Presently the additional clip-on parts cost from three to six dollars per piece. Most average sized kitchens have about twenty five cupboard doors. Calculating one slow-close clip per door puts us in the neighborhood of one hundred and twenty dollars ($120) to upgrade a standard sized kitchen to have this feature throughout.
If you have a three hinge door you can easily undo a single hinge plate at a time. If you have doors with just two hinges youll need to place a wedge under the door to take the weight off the hinge before you loosen it. 2) Once the plate is removed dip a couple cardboard matches into wood or white glue and put them into the hole. Then tighten the hinge screws and they should hold. 3) If the thought of shoving matches into the holes doesnt work for you use a golf tee or a sliver of wood instead. Cover these with glue and reinstall the hinge. Dont put the screw in the repaired hole yet. Allow the glue to dry then cut off any excess wood and then drill a pilot hole into it.
