Mrs. Hammerer had three boys and two daughters in a small home in Chino Hills. Their sons were all in football and the daughters were part of the Chino Hills High School Glee Club. The entire family was into school sports. One day the were locked in the garage and the door between the garage and the house. The boys tried removing the door hinge pins, beating on the door hardware, hitting with a sledge hammer at the door knobs, all hoping to get into the house. Finally after using several crowbars the door fell open. The boys replaced the door hardware and the deadbolts.
This post shows the four steps to repair the door jamb, install a wood shim, and replace the brass wood screws.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the damage, the left side door frame is spit and missing from the top of the middle hinge all the way down the door.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the door hinge was removed to see how damaged the door frame was. It looked repairable and the job repair was scheduled.
