Our uPVC front door has three hinges with two adjustments (see photo). Currently the door when locked has a gap at the bottom on the handle side.

I have tried all the adjustments on the side opposite the hinges, but still this gap (1/8" give) is present.

Can I ask what does the adjustments on the hinges do?

Many thanks,

Graham

Perhaps I should have said that they are 2 horizontal screws and one vehicle screw (under the plastic cover at the top) to do adjustments!

From spending several hours viewing YouTube videos and adjusting various screws (got the door jamming!).

Can I ask if the door compression adjustment is the top screw on each hinge?

If so what way for in and out as don't want to make things worse.

See photo attached for the hinge type.

Many thanks for hopefully a good reply,

Graham.

Is the gap due to a gap in the draught seal?

Or is it a gap underneath the door?

If its a gap on the draught seal because the door isnt pulling up tight on the handle side, then the keeps need adjusting.

When I pull the handle up, 2/3's of the door moves towards the seal, but the bottom of the door moves away!

I have tried to adjust the items inside the door frame, but all at there limit!

Just do not understand why the door moves in the opposite direction (bottom section) when handle pulled up.

If it moves away the keep is in the wrong place.

Check the distance compared to the top one

Thanks Notch1, I did set the bottom keep to and angle as all 4 keeps were set to full (for tight fit to seal.

I did think this would make the bottom seal worse, but did work!

Still do not know what the top screw does!
