Default Great Interior Door Hanging Product

I stumbled on this video while brushing the dust off my door hanging skills for the gym project I mentioned. I used them for the first time today. WOW! How friggen easy and you can do it yourself. I have renovated two of our houses and helped many others change doors. Lost of shimming and re-shimming and cursing with hammers hitting fingers. And with these there is less damage to fix before painting. I have a contractor here doing some other work. He never saw them either but seemed to like the idea as well.

I could have used those about 6 months ago. The addition to this house is so crooked it's a nightmare anytime I have to do any work on it.

Thanks for sharing that, Mark! I thought I was saving myself time and money by just buying the door slab for a closet door but now I see the folly in that. Digging around in Youtube I now see that taking out the frame is not all that hard. I paid somebody to come and hang a door in the room before ripping out all the old and hanging all that new drywall and that door is now all frigging crooked.

I will definitely be checking out this alternative to shimming in the future - and buying prehung doors from now on.

OT: it's amazing how - and why - you learn to do this kind of stuff. One time I locked one of the bed/bath locking door knobs and had lost the little cotter pin/key so I had to pop out the hinge pins. My son Justin (who you all know is mentally impaired) was watching me and I caught him doing that later. That showed me two things: how smart he really was and how stupid/ignorant I was!
