How to properly install the door hinges on the door-D and D Hardware

Hoop in hardware, perhaps lots of people get the idea of it, however, don't underestimate it. Hoop is the center of door suspension system, on which the opening and closing of a door depends entirely. Provided that the hinge is installed in the incorrect place of the door, the door will not be able to perform closing function well.


Now let's talk about what which aspects we should pay attention to in the act of installing the hinge.

1. Simply understand the configuration of the hinge

Stainless steel hinge is of the greatest popularity on the market. Common stainless steel hinge with noiseless ball bearings can reduce friction between two hinge joints, which prolongs the lifespan.

Of course, there are also unusual hinges for different scenarios.

For example, for effortless installation and disassembly, spring hinges for automatic closing doors, security hinges for outer doors and escape doors, etc.

Whatever the hinges are, their shared mission is to connect the door frame to the door leaf, bear the weight of the door so as to prevent it from dropping, enable the door to rotate smoothly with the minimum friction, so that the safeguard door can perform its function perfectly.

Generally speaking, longer distance between two installed hinges and thicker hinges bring stronger bearing capacity. And the truth is that one should figure out whether the hinge is suitable when it comes to a heavy door. Hinges cannot be installed at the corner of the door leaf.

Once installed, the hinges will be subjected to transverse tension and downward gravity.

Overstress on the hinges will result in:

Transverse tension - loosened screw and broken steering knuckle.

Downward gravity - increases the shear force on the screw.


Most important of all – prevent the doors from falling

Improper installation of door hinges will gradually decrease the lower gap, which will lead to difficult opening and closing, or even falling off. Attention should be paid to solutions to avert such a case.

Besides, the relevant accessories should be matched. Provided that the hinge slot does not match the hinge’s specification or the screw connected with it, the consequence will not only be a fallen door. Therefore, before getting the installation started, one should be well aware of the installing conditions, doors’ materials and thickness, etc.


Lastly, in order to avoid warping of windows and doors, one should note that the hinge axes should align vertically.


In terms of household decoration materials, the role of it should not be belittled.
