Gather your supplies
Utility knife; wedge; thin cardboard; drill and bits
STEP 1 Using utility knife, run around bottom hinge, cutting through paint.
STEP 2 Knock a wedge under door to take weight of the door. Unscrew hinge from jamb and fold out.
STEP 3 Cut pieces of cardboard to dimensions of hinge. Slip cardboard between hinge and jamb.
