910-054 3.5" Hinge Shims

A common problem is a door which is not straight in the jamb resulting in binding, sticking, rubbing, etc. We recommend the use of Quick Align Hinge Shims to align the door in the jamb and possibly avoid refinishing the door.

First, examine the door's uneven gap. It is usually tight, or rubbing at the top and has a wider gap at the bottom. Often, this is due to the door hinge screws only penetrating or anchoring in the thin millwork of the jamb, rather than the more substantial 2x4 stud in the wall.

Over time, the millwork (jamb) bends, due to the door's weight and the door becomes out of alignment with the jamb. To correct this misalignment, you will need to shim the hinge opposite the wide gap.
