Door swinging open very fast

Recommended Posts

This is driving me nuts.

Before I start looking at it has anyone had this issue ?

Pas door swings open pretty quick and before long is going to damage something - ie the wall !

Does anyone know what to adjust to stop it ? I would assume if you look at the door end on it's leaning out but nothing obvious stikes me.

Any clues ?

Jonathan,

There is a nyloc nut on top of the hinge mechanism that you can tighten to adjust the tension on the door swing. I'm pretty sure it's the one that holds the check strap to the hinge I just don't remember now for sure without looking.

Check to make sure the checkstrap and spring isn't broken as well.

Hi Jim,

I looked at this and the only conclusion I came to was the crunch those nuts down so hard that there was loads of friction on the hinge.

The door fits perfectly, perhaps sticks out slightly at the bottom but thats needed to drain or it goes all over the sill.

There are 2 nuts there, one is M12 and the other is M8 and the post that is visable (think this is the one you mean) ?

I'll get the tools out tomorrow and have a look - cheers
