Check Door Hinges Periodically

I just read the hint about checking the screws in your doorknobs. While I was going around, I found that my door hinge pins were all elevated. A couple were half out. This could have meant the door falling off it's hinges, literally. So please take a hammer with your screwdriver to check both ends of your doors.

A little ball ping hammer is good to keep on hand, for this very reason. I've had to use mine in the kitchen, several times a year, especially on the cabinet doors you use the most.

I'll be darned. So I just checked the door hinges (all ok) and now I know how to replace my old storm door. I don't know why, but I thought there was more to replacing a storm door. Thanks.
