GKL HA1D The Hinge Doctor for Commercial Butt Hinges


The Hinge Doctor® HA1D is designed to adjust commercial butt hinges. Simply slip the Hinge Doctor® HA1D over the top hinge and turn with a wrench.

Instruction manual:

Open the door only 3 to 4 inches past the point where it binds against the tool then remove the tool from the hinge, check the door and repeat if necessary.

It's usually only necessary to adjust the top hinge, however if after you've adjusted the top hinge and there is still a large gap between the door and the frame (above the top hinge) them adjust the center hinge as well.

NEVER adjust the bottom hinge unless the leading edge of the door hits the bottom portion of the door jamb.

Hinges that have been adjusted too much will be hard to close. If this happens place a 1/8" Allen wrench right behind the knuckles and between the 2 plates of the hinge and then push the door closed. This will reverse the first adjustment. Adjust the door again as necessary with the hing adjuster tool.

When to adjust the top hinge:
  • When the leading edge of the door is hitting the side of the door frame (above the strike)
  • When the latch no longer lines up with the strike hole
  • When the door shows excessive signs of sagging
