Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door.
This post shows the five steps to removing door hardware from the damaged door.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the door that has been removed and set on its side. Now check each part of the door hardware to see what tools will be needed to remove the lock and plate screws.
Step 2: Fig.2 and fig.3 shows the use of a cordless drill with a Phillip screwdriver bit to remove the latch from the door edge. To remove the door assembly the latch must be released first.

Step 5: Fig.7 shows the removal of the metal hinges. Now that the door hardware has been removed the next step is how to recycle the door hardware.
Step 6: If these parts are saved, they can serve to honor the planet instead of landing in a refuse heap.
