Need to adjust some door hinges, but am right puzzled by the
mechanism. There's no name on them unfortunately. Theyre big fat
plastic things, and on the underside is what looks like some kind of
adjustment, but how it works I have little clue. I'll see if I can

Thats basically the pattern visible on the underside of the rotating
pin bit of the hinge - it actually has 6 of those squarish cutouts not
4, I could only draw it as 4 in ASCII, you get the idea.
The central <_> is a hex allen key head
The |_ 's are cutouts, on both moving outer and stationary inner bits.
The dots ..' just show the borderline between the moving section and
the inner stationary part.
I hope this is clear... I'm not convinced it is. Any clues on how to
adjust it without causing who knows what probs would be good. I need
to raise the door a bit to stop it fouling. I just dont want to do it
without having a clue, as I dont want the door to a) fall off, or b)
the hinges to place a lot of force/tension against each other,
resulting in warping.
Any input welcome!
In the centre section of the hinge, is there a big headed screw and a little
headed screw ? If it is like this, then undo the big headed screw just a
little bit, then tighten the little headed screw in a bit until the door
stop fouling at the bottom. Or Vice Versa if it's fouling at the top. When
you have it where you want it, tighten the big headed screw up again.
I know what I mean.............Do You ? :-)))
