Door pin
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Fiberglass claw hammer

Mrs. H lives in Hollywood, California. Today, she called about repairing her door pins. Two sets of door with pins almost out of the door hinge. 

This post shows the three steps on knocking down door pins.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the pins on the front door. All the brass door hinge pins were very loose and needed to be tapped down. Loose pins can damage the hinges on a door.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows a fiberglass claw hammer that will be used to hammer the door pins down were they belong.

Step 3: Fig.2 shows that the pins have been hammered just below the little pin head. On the front door 6-pins needed to be hammered. Standard door pins need to be hammered all the way down to the top of the hinge.
