It turned out that you also encountered a problem called “hinges of creaking doors”? If so, read this article to find out how a WD-40 can help you end this annoying topic. Below you will find tips on how to grease the hinges well, if your door creaks:
The first thing you need to do if your door creaks – is to remove them from the hinges. To do this, open the door and make sure you have a hammer and a thicker nail at hand. Place the nail on the bottom of the hinge and hit it with a hammer. When the pin is already sufficiently loose, you should be able to easily dismantle the hinge. If you’re dealing with a rusty hinge, pulling it out will not be so easy.
WD-40 will loosen the rust on the hinge pin, so you should not have difficulty pulling it out. Remember that the nail you use to loosen your hair will no longer be usable later.
Since the hinge pins hold the door, it is necessary to support the door before removing it.
After removing the hats from the hinge, it’s time to cover it with the right lubricant. The grease will extend the time the pins will be in good condition. WD-40 is a lubricant and at the same time a preparation that protects against rust. You will be free from corrosion. All you have to do is spray the hinges profusely with the help of the WD-40.
After proper hardening of the hinge – preferably with the help of WD-40- it is time to re-mount it. Put the hinge pin again on its remaining part. Use a hammer and nail to place the hinge in the right place. Now try to open and close the door several times. Thanks to that, you’ll make sure that the door will not squeak any more.
Considering all the factors, it’s hard to imagine a better way to lubricate the hinges in the door. However, to make your choice easier, we present several factors worth considering:
If the hinge pin is rusty, pulling it out is a difficult task. The WD-40 will loosen the pin, which is now hinged and you can remove it without major problems.
If the hinge hats are to be lubricated with other preparations, the need to completely disassemble the hinge must be taken into account. The WD-40, on the other hand, thanks to the fact that it is in the form of a spray, will get to the smallest places, even without the need to disassemble the entire hinges.
When it comes to WD-40, it is only one of the tasks in which this wonderful measure will work, eliminating squeaks and repairing creaking doors. WD-40 is, as the name says, a multifunctional preparation. It has over 2,000 applications. Thanks to this, apart from the task in question, you will use this product in other situations.
