Fixing a Door That Swings Open

Do you have a door that swings open by itself? Does the door not stay in its place when opened partway? Well let me share this easy idea on how to fix a door swing problem yourself in just minutes.

If you have a door that swings open by itself, it is because the door jamb is not square and the door is not balanced properly. This easy fix works and takes just minutes to complete.

All you need to do is take out the top pin on the door hinge and bent it a bit to get your door to stay put. Here are the steps to take:

  • Remove the top pin from the door hinge
  • Place the pin on a flat solid surface like a board
  • Hit the pin in the center with a hammer just a few times to put a slight bend in it
  • Replace the pin in the door hinge

Here is my pin after it was bent a bit. As you can see it has a very slight bend now which is the secret to this door hinge fix. The slight bend in the pin now prevents the door from swinging open on its own.

I hope you try this door hinge hack. It works and is a great way to fix a door that swings open on its own.
