    IMG_6679.JPG IMG_6680.JPG Hi there, my left hand side french door seems to come away slightly from the top, and so I have to lift it up on the middle edge while shutting to get it cleanly over the threshold. The gap between the door and frame is wider at the top than bottom so I thought maybe I need to adjust the hinges, but they look quite complicated. Is anyone familiar with this type and can advise? Any help much appreciated!
    Cheers,
    Dave.

    Thats some funky hinges. My guess would be the 2 allen key adjusters on the door itself are the in and out ones you need.
    Work them both as a pair (1 turn each at a time) and count the turns so you can put it back where it was if it doesnt work

    Cheers Gazman, it was the fact that both frame and door have the same adjustment that threw me a bit. I'll try door like you said and note the amount of turns in case!
