General Installation Instructions 

Installing saloon doors, also known as swinging cafe doors or double-hinged doors, can be a relatively straightforward process. Here's a general guide to help you install saloon doors:

Materials and Tools Needed:

  1. Saloon doors

  2. Hinges

  3. Screws

  4. Screwdriver or drill

  5. Level

  6. Pencil

  7. Measuring tape

General Instructions:

  1. Measure and Mark:

    • Measure the width of the door frame or opening where you plan to install the saloon doors.
    • Mark the center point of the opening both horizontally and vertically. This is where the doors will meet.
  2. Attach Hinges to Doors:

    • Lay the doors flat on a stable surface.
    • Attach the hinges to the top and bottom of each door. Place them close to the edge of the doors but not so close that they weaken the wood. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for hinge placement.
  3. Install Hinges on the Door Frame:

    • Stand the doors upright in the opening with the hinges lined up at the center point you marked earlier.
    • Hold one door steady while attaching the hinges to the door frame using screws. Use a screwdriver or drill for this step.
    • Use a level to ensure the doors are plumb (vertically straight).
  4. Test the Doors:

    • Open and close the doors to make sure they swing freely and don't bind. Make any necessary adjustments to the hinge placement if needed.
  5. Secure the Doors:

    • Once you are satisfied with the alignment and movement of the doors, tighten the screws on the hinges securely.
  6. Optional Adjustments:

    • If the doors are not closing properly, you may need to adjust the hinges slightly. Loosen the screws, make the necessary adjustments, and then tighten the screws again.
  7. Finishing Touches:

    • If the doors are unfinished or you want to change their appearance, you can paint or stain them according to your preference.

Always refer to the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer of the saloon doors, as installation details may vary based on the type and design of the doors you have.
