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 ball. One day they were locked into the garage and the door between the garage and the garage door would not open into the house. The boys tried removing the door hinge pins, beating on the door hardware, hitting with a sledge hammer the door knobs; all hoping to get into the house. Finally after using several crow bars the door fell open. The boys replaced the door hardware and the deadbolts.
This post shows the six steps to repairing the door jamb and the door center brass hinge.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the 2-1/4 in Satin brass finish wood screws that will be used to replace the brass screws in the existing hinge.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the frame after the wood filler repairs were made to the door jamb. One hinge screw was driven in with a cordless screwdriver. There will be at least two inches of screw inside the 2x4 wood stud. These studs are what stabilizes the door frame and the door.
