How do you remove a pin from a spring hinge?
Using a hex wrench, open the spring so you can see the tension pin. Then, remove the pin using pliers. You can then remove the hex wrench and allow the spring to naturally unwind. Once the spring is removed, you can take the other screws out and remove the hinge normally.
Besides, how do you remove a pin from a hinge?
To make this job go smoothly, first close and latch the door. Then remove the hinge pins by tapping on the bottom of the hinge pin with a nail (Photo 1). Don’t try to drive the pins all the way out with the nail—you might damage the trim with the hammer.
Likewise, why do hinge pins come out? The reason the hinge pins come out is because the door is shaking.
Beside this, are all hinge pins removable?
There are removable and non-removable pin hinges. Removable hinges are most common. The reason is because most hinges are on the inside of the locking doors, but that’s not always the case. When your door is closed you will be able to see the hinges protruding on one side (normally the inside) of the door.
