Hi,

Our back door requires a new uPVC hinge as the last one has given way.

I'll put a pic up.

Do I just get and install it myself? Anything that I've got to look out for?

Unusual for a door hinge to give up unless poorly fitted... Pic of offending hinge please ?

Depending on type you might need oversized screws and some-one posted a link to a supplier yesterday... or maybe the day before .

Heres the pics of it.

Which way would I need to screw in/out for the door to move left/right and up/down?? ImageImage

The reason it cracked in the first place was because the door restrictor has snapped if there was ever one fitted you need a pvc internal door restrictor
