Door hitting the strike jamb?

If the door hits the frame (or rubs on the rabbet of the head or jamb) the frame is out of square and improperly installed.

  1. Door edge rubbing on the rabbet - shimming the hinges may resolve the problem
  2. Door edge hitting the frame face - shimming the hinges may resolve the problem however frame replacement may be required
  3. In adverse conditions the frame may have to be replaced

Drywall Slip-on frames (DW or K-Series) may be adjusted using the compression anchors to re-square the frame

Field shimming of the frame is the responsibility of the installing contractor and is a part of the installation process.
