Hi folks, looking for some help here please.
My door is not closing properly. When i push it shut, it can be opened with very little pressure as it would appear that the catch is not protruding into the retainer sufficiently.
Was looking at how to adjust but have not see any instructions that cater for this hinge with two holes at the bottom.
Is anyone familiar with this type and how would i adjust it to move the door closer to the lock.

Could you post a pic of the entire hinge? There are several types and this looks like a flag hinge(could be wrong tho) the part that's attached to the door can sometimes be adjusted and move the door laterally,either by an Allen key at the end or by flicking the cover off to expose the adjustable Allen bolt.
The bottom and top Allen bolts on the vertical part of the hinge usually adjust the height.
Can't tell 100% until I see the whole hinge tho.

Here is the full hinge.
Should the horizontal flap open, dont want to pressure it if it is not meant to.

No it shouldn't... I think Though I could be wrong... that the bottom of the hinge is where the adjustments can be made, see the link in my previous post.

Open the door and if you see two grub screws on hinge then loosen them and the cover will release with a flick using a flat bladed screwdriver and you'll see an Allen bolt that adjusts the lateral movement of door.
