Step by Step Instructional Guide

Step 1: Removal of Hinge

The first step while adjusting the hinge pin door closer is the removal of the old hinge if required. With the help of a screwdriver or a drill, remove the screws from the door and remove the hinges.

Step 2: Installation

You then need to install the new hinge pin, where the old hinge pin was placed and insert the new screws. Make sure that the screw pattern is almost the same as the screws used in the old hinge pin.

Step 3: Adjustments

With the help of the adjustment bar, insert it in the hole which is right at the top of the hinge pin and turn it away from the door. Then insert the stop pin in the hole as well which is closest to the door too, and repeat the process for the bottom of the hinge pin. Make the proper adjustments.

Step 4: Testing

Lastly, do not forget to test the hinge pin door closer. Open the door and allow the new hinge pin door closer to shut the door. If the door is closing too hard, then adjust the pressure by decreasing it and vice versa.

Thus, in this way you can adjust your old hinge pin door closer or install a new one, by following the steps mention above.
