Step 1. Place the unit into the RO and open the door past 90°.
It will act like a kickstand to prop the frame up. Next, place the 3 parts labeled H at each door hinge and put Part T onto the top of the door. Place each Part S on the strike side of the door directly across from each Part H. The Orange Spacer should ALWAYS be on the hinge-pin side of the door.
PRO TIP: Shim with the thick portion facing the hinge-pin. This prevents the door from binding when shut. Also, use the long hinge screws provided with the door hinges NOW to prevent over-tightenting them later.
2. WITH THE DOOR OPEN, pull the frame back into the RO. Use the levels on Parts H and T to ensure the door is LEVEL and PLUMB before fastening. START AT THE TOP and work your way down the door – shimming and fastening at each hinge location. Take great care at this point that ALL levels read correctly before moving to next step. This is CRUCIAL to achieve an accurate install.
Step 3. GENTLY pull the door shut. The levels’ built-in shim pads will help guide the door into the frame. Next, insert shims snugly above Part T. All leveling parts are designed to act as spacers between the door and the jamb. Fasten through the jamb when ready. Notice how you can easily slide Part T along the top of the door allowing you to place shims where needed.
Step 4. WITH THE DOOR SHUT, start at the top and shim at the 3 remaining parts S until the shims feel snug. The shim pads will help keep you from putting your shims in too far. When you’re ready, fasten through the jamb at each part. Again, the parts can slide up and down if needed.
PRO TIP: It’s a good idea to only use nails as a secondary fastener. Your door carries too much weight. Screws are recommended to fasten the hinge-pin side of the door frame. Nails alone will cause the door to sag and operate improperly.
Step 5. Open the door and remove all leveling parts. Parts H and S are designed to fit compactly together inside of Part T. Be sure to keep your tool ready for its next use inside the provided micro-carrying bag!
THIS TOOL WORKS ON: Commercial and Residential doors – Single or Double doors – BOTH Inswing and Outswing doors – Doors with Sidelights or Transoms – Doors with Applied Casing – even Split Jamb doors!
