Frequently Asked Questions for Complete Hinge
» Does your PTFE Complete Hinge fix all door squeaks? Our hinge is designed to fix all door squeaks caused by pin to hinge or hinge knuckle to knuckle contact.
Frequently Asked Questions for Door Pins NOTICE: We no longer sell door pins. They are now integrated with our new hinge.
» Does your PTFE sleeved door pin fix all door squeaks? No, It is designed to fix squeaks caused from hinge pin to hinge contact which is the cause of the majority of door squeaks. If your door is severely misaligned causing the hinges to rub on each other, our pin will not correct that.
» How can I tell if my door squeak is coming from the hinge pin contact with the pin? Easy, remove one of the pins on the squeaky door. If you see wear marks on the pin as in this picture then that is most likely the cause.
» Is the pin coated with PTFE? No, our pins have a PTFE sleeve on a steel hinge pin. The PTFE sleeve is half the thickness of an original all steel hinge pin. Since the PTFE is so thick, expect the life of our hinge pin to be substantial.
» What size hinge does your pin work in and how many do I need? Our pin is designed for 3 1/2 inch hinges -see image-, which is the most common hinge used in the US. You will need to replace all the hinge pins on your squeaking door to get the full benefits. Most doors use three hinges, so one order of our pins will have you covered.
» I installed a set of your pins. After a few months my door started squeaking again? Just remove the pins, clean with warm soapy water and reinstall. This will correct the squeak. You will notice old black residue (metal dust) on the new pin from your old pin. That is the cause of the new squeak.
» How long will they last, do they wear out? Our pins were tested by one of the largest door manufactures in the world. The industry standard test is 250 thousand door slams. Here is a picture of our pins after the 250 thousand slams.
