Default Re: Adjusting door alignment?

i can't remember exactly how the OBS doors are held on, but if it has bolts for the hinges: loosen the bolts that attach the hinge to the body just enough to be able to move the door around a lil. if it need to go up a lil have a friend lift up on the door a bit, then tighten the bolts. test fit it (don't slam it, it might be too far off and could damage something). keep doing that process until it lines up.

also, if you notice that door lines up until it hits the latch and then is pulled up or down, you'll need to adjust the latch and/or striker.

"NOTE: C/K series utilize hinges that are welded to the door and frame. No adjustment is possible except when replacement hinges have been installed"
