I’m Ryan Parker with Parker Home Renovations in New Braunfels, Texas. And today I am going to teach you how to fix a loose door hinge. Now, the first thing you are going to need when you try to fix a loose door hinge is you are going to need a three inch screw and you are going to need a screw gun. Usually what happens whenever a door hinge comes loose from the door jamb is the short screws that come with the hinge strip out the wood or pull loose from the wood.

Now, what you are going to need to do is you are going to need to take your three inch screw or three inch screws, depending on how many pulled loose, and you are going to need to take out the small screw in the hinge and drive the 3 inch screw through the door jamb, through the hinge. And what that is going to do is it’s going to suck the hinge back up to the door jamb and it will actually grab the door jamb better than the smaller screw.

Now, if that doesn’t work, what you may have to do is you may have to actually plug the holes where the old screws were by sticking match ends or small pieces of wood into that hole, put glue on them and stick them in their and then re-drive the screws through the hinge into those holes after they’ve dried.
