HOW TO ADJUST THE 2-D HINGE FOR WOOD AND VINYL PRODUCTS
Settling of walls and floors can make door panels hard to open and close. The 2-D Adjustable Hinge allows easy adjustment of the door both horizontally (+/- 2 mm) and vertically (+/- 3 mm) with just the turn of a screw. Each hinge is reversible and has maintenance free bearings.
There are two types of adjustable hinges for each door panel.
A. Set Hinge: One per panel. This has vertical adjustment (+/- 3mm).
B. Guide Hinge: Minimum of two per panel. These hinges only have the horizontal adjustment (+/- 2mm.)
The guide hinges float up and down with the adjustment of the set hinge to prevent hinge binding.
Normal hinge replacement has the set hinge. Using a Phillips screwdriver, first adjust the panel up or down by turning the screw marked "V" on the set hinge. When turning the screw in the direction of the arrow (counter clockwise) the other leaf will be pushed in the direction of the arrow. Automatic screwdrivers are not recommended. The speed of the gun may strip the heads if the screws are over adjusted.
When the vertical adjustment is turned clockwise, the non-adjustable leaf will move in the direction of the arrow. The vertical adjustment has 32 turns from its extremes, and the horizontal has 7 turns.
Adjust the horizontal by turning clockwise to increase the margins. Turn counter clockwise to decrease the margins.
