Quick Tip: Use a Golf Tee to Fix a Door Hinge from Houzz.com

Houzz.com shows us a quick way to fix hinges when the screw has been stripped, originating from Grainda Buildres, Inc.
You will need a hammer, wood glue, a golf tee and sharp utility knife, and of course a screwdriver or pliers to yank out the screw.
It probably wouldn't hurt to have a drill on hand  for a new pilot hole to hold the new screw.
I suppose you will also need a wobbly door hinge.
Just click on the picture to go to the tutorial. Thanks Houzz.com!

If you have a stripped phillips screw head, place an elastic band between the screw head and the screwdriver to give yourself more grip.


  1. Sounds like a good do-it-yourself tip. We do not have golfers in our household; consequently, it would not work for us.

  2. this is such a nice tip which i can try at home. thanks for sharing.
