I need to install hinge pin door stops on some interior doors. I've
never seen these types of hinges before. The hinge plates are 4 inches
high, the pin is about 3 inches or more. Instead of the normal pin;
there are screw caps on the top and bottom. The pin is installed and
the caps are then screwed into place. The caps are about 5/16 long.
There are no markings on the hinges to determine the maker.
Anyone know what the hinge type is called or know of a door stop that
would work?? These doors cannot use the baseboard rigid door stop.
The caps are not long enough to engage the thread. I tried the common
door stop, but the cap is to short to attach.
Can you replace the top screw cap with a bolt having the correct threads
and of sufficient length to make it through the door stop?
Chances are the door stop will block most of the view of the bolt head,
or you could dab a little gold paint on it to make it blend in.
If the hex on the bolt is too large and interferes with installation,
then turn it down on a lathe and saw a screwdriver slot into it.
If you don't have a lathe then just chuck it in an electric drill and
use a file to "turn it down".

Tomorrow I will pull one side of the hinges and look at it to see if
I can just drill out the hinge ( threads) for just one door stop.
Then install a traditional pin, cap painted to match the hinge color.
Wish I knew the name for the hinges.
buffalo ny: or possibly substitute with a doorknob wall bumper.
to catch my small dog indoors from his stairwell doggy door area i use
a door screw hook high on the door with a long wastebasket rubberband
as a slow doorcloser.
maybe get other hardware ideas at:

Found out today the door hinges (about 20 doors) had "upgraded
hinges". It was a mistake from the door shop. The were not supposed
to be "high quality" hinges. The builder ate the price difference.
If, I get the right size hinge pin in the right bronze finish they
should work. I tried and regular hinge pin and it was not thick enough
and was to long. However, the tapped threads in the hinge plates did
not interfere with a "normal" pin.
The pins are not knurled.
I'm waiting until Monday; as I now know, the local door shop that
built the doors. Thanks.
