Have squeaky, grating or floppy door hinges worn your patience a little thin? Let’s replace them and make your comings and goings less stressful.
Remove the hinge pins by using a screwdriver to tap up on the bottom edge of the head of each pin. Sometimes your hand will be enough; other times you may need to be a little more persuasive and use a hammer to tap the screwdriver.
Remove the 2 halves of 1 set of hinges from the door edge and the door jamb by taking out the mounting screws.
Split the new hinges. This is often most easily accomplished by holding the hinge in one hand and pulling the pin with a pair of pliers in the other. A gentle twisting and tugging motion is usually enough.
