Fitting the door hinge brackets is an interesting task, many have commented upon. It is difficult to get a gentleman’s fingers into position to fit the top machine screw and the tedium of tightening it a sixth of a turn with a modified allen key is a right ballsache. The answer is to open the end of the top slot, pre-fix the top machine screw so it only requires a couple of twists to secure and the bracket can be slid into position using the open slot.
