How to add a door stop to this hinge?


Hello,
I have a new ply gem door that I can't figure out how to add a hinged door stop. No other solution will work in my situation. The hinge is different in that it doesn't have a traditional pin. A pin is up inside and I can't seem to get it out. There is a rubber piece that accepts a 3/16" pin. The bottom side seems to have a head that could accept an Allen wrench. Has anybody dealt with a hinge like this. The manufacturer was no help when I called.
Thanks,
Jeff

You don't. You just have to put a stop on the floor, or on the baseboard, to keep it from hitting the wall. Floor stops are better, and will stand up to someone slamming the door inward.

I would like to but the door is elevated too high off the floor for a floor bumper and when I open the door it opens into another glass window. The glass window is actually a fixed french door and i would not want to drill into it. This is quite frustrating. We are using pillows right now. Ha.

Then my only suggestion is to teach people not to slam doors as they open them. You could probably change out the hinges if you wanted to, if you can find any that will fit in the same routed cutouts.

I think if I can figure out how to get the pin out, I could retrofit some type of stop into it. Anybody know how to get the pin out?
Thanks,
Jeff

It is made that way to keep people from getting the pins out. Have you read the instructions that came with the door, if you have them, or contacted the manufacturer about removing the pin? If it is made to be threaded, doubt there is enough length to allow you to put one of the cheater door stops on the top anyways, so your only best bet would be to change out the whole hinge.

Would a stop like this attached to the baseboard work?

I know that we have lost the OP by now, there appears to be other heights available on that site. http://absupply.net/trim-auxiliary-d...hold-open.aspx

Might work, attached to the door jamb right behind the hinge.

Neat stop, but my understanding is the pins do not come out on these hinges.

As far as I know, all hinges have some sort of pin to hold the two parts together.
He can also take a look at this site. http://www.doorsaver.com/index.html

That's true, but not all pins are removable, at least not without destroying the hinge. Some are made that way for security purposes and some just for cheap manufacturing purposes.
