DIY Door help please

#1 Post by Boac » Sun Nov 14, 2021 1:13 pm

I need to lift a door off its hinges, and it has 3 flag hinges. I cannot see how to get at the hinge to allow the door to be lifted - can anyone identify the hinge from the pic and/or offer a 'how-to'?

I can make all the necessary adjustments on it but it is how I release it to allow lifting I need. Most internet 'guides' I have found for flag hinges say I need to release a screw which clamps the door to the hinge - finding that screw is the problem!

What about the hole in the end of the 'flag'?

G CPTN, that hole, IIRC is to adjust the height.

Actually it adjusts the lateral position of the door.
