    I got given a 900mm Upvc fully glazed door which I have fitted into a brick opening through a wall into back of my garage.

    I've fitted the frame Plumb and straight. However the door is catching on the bottom left. It will close but needs a good nudge to shut it.

    The door hinge mechanisms are star shaped and have a flat side. They are obviously rising butt in nature. But at what point should the cam be located . I have them at best fit at moment. The hinge adjusters are fully up well tight. I haven't really played with the lateral adjusters.

    Do I just whang a frame fix into frame to pull corner down ??

    Assuming the door is low on the handle side? If so it just wants "Toe and Heeling".
    Hang the door put the hinges together, Take out the top and side glazing beads, Lift the door and put an extra packer in between the glass and frame on the handle side at the top.

    When the welds of the door sash line up with the welds on the frame you should be good to go.
