    I've got a small problem.Just put up a solid wood oak door(36x80),with double action spring loaded hinges, so the door will swing both ways. The problem is,the door tends to stay rest in a slightly opened position. Has anyone had any experience with this type of door and hinges? The hinges are supposed to support 25 to 35 lbs each and I'm using four to support the door. The door is quite heavy but I really don't thing it weighs more than 80 lbs. Any answers?

    Sounds like the spring tension needs to be adjusted. See if you can find the adjustment screws (Allen-Head) on the top and/or bottom of the hinges, there might also be some small pins that will need to be removed and re-installed in order to adjust the tension.

    Thanks for answering Frank. I've talked to a few people about this and their answer was pretty much the same as yours. I hope I can get this corrected so the door will work the way its supposed to. Thanks again!
