Remove the old hinges. Use the screwdriver to loosen the screws holding them in place.

Clean the door jamb and the door where the hinges will be installed. Remove any debris or paint residue.

Installing the Hinges

Step 1: Mark the Hinge Positions

Position the hinge on the door and mark the screw holes using a pencil.

Repeat the process for the hinge on the door jamb.

Step 2: Drill Pilot Holes

Use a drill to create pilot holes for the screws. This will prevent the wood from splitting when the screws are driven in.

Insert the screws through the pilot holes and into the hinges. Do not overtighten the screws, as this can damage the hinge or strip the screws.


Once the hinges are installed, adjust them to ensure smooth operation.

Use the screwdriver to loosen or tighten the screws slightly as needed.

Check the door for level and alignment using a level.

Final Touches

Clean up any sawdust or debris.

Apply a small amount of grease to the hinge pins to prevent wear and tear.

Inspect the hinges regularly to ensure they are working properly.


Installing aluminum door hinges is a straightforward process that can be completed with care and attention to detail. By following these step-by-step instructions, you can ensure that your door operates smoothly and securely for years to come.
