Forum Title: Adjusting self-closing hinge?
The self-closing hinges on our screen door hasn't been fully closing the door like they were. I have tried looking around for instructions on adjusting them, but these hinges don't match any of the ones I have been able to find. Is there a way to adjust them?

Your first step is figuring out the brand and model of window. Look for a gold AAMA/NFRC sticker on the frame somewhere... usually on the top of the frame when you open a window. If you can't figure that out, you are probably SOL. It looks to me like they used sill expander to trim the interior of the window. That's pretty crappy, and if you are finishing the basement, i'd recommend you remove all of that sill expander on all sides of the window before you trim the windows with either wood jambs or a drywall return, depending on how they will be trimmed.

Xsleeper beat me to it they need replacement.

Ok, thanks very much. I suspected that might be the case.
