    I am fitting a UPvc door and frame in my porch and am having a problem with the door catching just on the lock.
    Have 'toe and heeled' the door but still not locking correctly. I've noticed that the 3 hinges have an allen key mechanism inside. Can I get any adjustment by using these?

    The door should have both vertical adjustment on the hinge pins - usually an Allen socket screw in the bottom; & individual horizontal adjustment on each hinge – again via an Allen socket screw in the side of the hinge. The multi lock plate on the inside of the door jamb usually also has individual adjustment on each roller plate.

    Thanks Richard C

    Have adjusted by using the vertical screws and it seems fine now. Hope it doesn't settle anymore!
    Thanks again.
