    we have a newish door (2 yr old) never seemed to be the best of fit - complained to the company who tried to adjust it

    two years down the line - one of our hinges has cracked in 2 bits, as i think they just made adjustment on this hinge, (from what i read they should have adjusted it on all 3 to take the weight)

    its a trojan flag hinge are they easy to replace?? diy job or not??

    thanks

    managed to change it :) and adjusted it seems ok

    only neg is out of the x4 screws 1 large and 1 small - they didnt seem to nip up very well, (2 got hold fine) 1 perfect! what with being taken off again one i tightened up with a cock tail stick shoved in hole and the other a bit of a raw plug, should be ok

    any other suggests when you are struggling to get a screw to bite in to plastic?

    thanks
