Slow close door hinge – If you do not want your doors to close and hit the frame, the self-closing hinges will prove very useful. A special door opening that can be quickly improved by this type of hinge is the front door of an attached garage. Do not look at the self-closing door hinges to slow down a door, but to close the door automatically. You can also install self-closing door hinges in less than 30 minutes. The existing hinges of the garage door must be removed so that the new self-closing door hinges can be installed. Open the door to install the new hinges. Also use the screwdriver to remove the screws from the upper hinge connected to the chassis and does the same with the lower hinge. There may be up to three screws and sometimes more to remove. Make sure you hold the door so that it does not fall on you. If the door is out of the frame, place it on the floor or other flat surface. Remove the hinge screws at the door.
After being outside the door gets dirty but clean it does not matter to the new slow close door hinge. If you decide to clean the lid do it with plain detergent and a cloth. Place self-closing door hinges on the door and align them with the current holes. If they line with the holes present then just install the screws that came with the hinges. If nails are completely different then use the pencil to make a mark on the holes on the new hinges where you want them placed
When making pilot holes make sure you use a drill with a diameter less than the screws that will be used to secure the slow close door hinge. Grasp the door tight or in a screwdriver and start drilling it out. Use firm and even pressure but go slowly you only have to walk in the door about 1/2 inch deep. Put the door back on the frame and line up the hinges. Drill pilot holes as you did on the door. Secure the hinges to the door with screws but put a screw at the top and one at the bottom. This will stabilize the door as you install the remaining screws and tighten them.
