glass door won't close
 
When swung open it will not close upon returning to the closed position. It bangs against the door sill at the latch point. Also, it now binds at the lower point where it closes. In other words, it appears that the hinges may have come out a few thousandths of an inch causing the door to droop. What to do? thanx

Remove old screw on applicable hinge and install a longer screw which will in essence lift the latch to plate connection.

If that does not work let me know and i will tell you how to throw a hinge.

Is this a storm door with a pneumatic closer?
