Replacing your door hinges is simple right? 

  1. You unscrew the hinge screws from both the door jam and door.
  2. You put on the new hinges with the screws that came with them.
  3. You test out the new hinges
  4. Everyone is happy

Well, it’s usually not that easy especially when it comes to a door that has been removed from the door jam and hinges multiple times.  Some of the hinge screws tighten and some of them don’t. Sometimes, you might end up with this.

Door Loose from Hinge

Trust us, this is the last thing you want.  This could cause some serious injuries if your door comes off of the door jam.  This is more common then you think when replacing your hinges and using the smaller hinge screws that come with the typical hinges.

Now, you have 2 options to handle this type of issue. 

  1. The first option is for you to repair the stripped door hinge holes and door jam holes.  If you don't know what you are doing, you could make the screw holes much worse.
  2. The second option and the one we recommend is to buy extra long wood screws also known as hinge screws.
We have taken the time to manufacturer specially designed screws that are made to keep your hinges and ultimately your door in place and aligned appropriately. These exclusive screws are long enough to go all the way into the door jam to insure that the door is held in place. In addition, they are designed to take the wear and tear of the constant opening and closing of your doors.

 

Here are the Hinge Screws we are referring to shown in Satin Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze:

You will notice that the thread does not go all the way to the top of the screw.  That is intentionally designed that way to hold your hinges and doors in place.  We carry the most popular finishes in these screws for both 2 ¼ inch long and 3 inch long screws.  Please visit our Hinge Screwsection to see all of the available finishes we have in stock.

Don't Forget to stock your toolbox with one of our most popular tools.  These are a must have if you own a door and are on sale right now.
