How Remove Pin In Door-Closer Body Hinge


I have (2) Pease 426-R door closer body hinges on one of my doors. One is center and the other is at the bottom.

Is there a way to take the pin out so that I can take the door down. Or do I have to take the screws out of the hinge plates?

The top of the closer body has a hex head fitting and rotates about 90 degrees counterclockwise when I put the hex key in it. during the rotation it does not appear that anything is "loosening up"

How Remove Pin In Door-Closer Body Hinge


in the pic it looks like a little tiny ball bearing in the round housing part holding the pin. maybe push that in along with rotating the hex screw and it will free the pin?? otherwise, open the door to the open position and place something solid between door bottom and floor to hold the weight of the door and then screw out the screws in the hinge. If you pull one at a time the door will stay in place. good luck

As a follow up: I contacted the manufacturer, Pease Doors. Here is their response:

You have to take the screws out.
