  1. This has been a problem for 2 of our interior doors for 12 years. Your fix and in less than 5 minutes the problem is solved
    Thank you much

  2. I have a door that was sticking/rubbing on the top right side because the top hinge pin seems too narrow. I tried this exactly the way shown, and the hinge is now tight, and the door no longer sticks. Yay! Thanks!!
