Do you still need to shim the top?

You should not need to shim unless you want to do it for extra support @ the top.

Hello, JD; I see that there are no instructions on how to install an exterior door with this kit, so I would recommend using it only on pre-hung interior doors! Sorry! But Home Depot could help you find all the hardware you'll need for hanging exterior doors! Good luck!

No! There should be at least 9 small screws and 3 drywall screws.

I really like these things... It makes installing a door easier. I often have no help or inexperienced help. So these things are worth it. I come back and install shims just because it makes the door rock solid.

I am thinking about using these, having issues installing a door. Would these still work if the door has been removed and worked on trying to install?

If it was a prehung door and you are reinstalling, it would work fine.

Only if the wall is plumb. One would have to use a shim if the wall is not plumb. The leg that is used for side to side adjustments is meant to lay flat on a plumb wall. If you shim it, then the casement will be messed up. However even using shims will mess up the moulding. I would recommend to make your own frame and mortise it by hand to handle the out of plumb wall.

If you are placing the hanger on the door correctly, the large hole should fall directly over the center hinge screw. Once the bracket is in place and you have set the door, you have to remove the center hinge screw and replace it with whatever screw you are going to use. There is a Youtube video on the installation process. Just google "Quick door hanger youtube" I have used over 40 of these hangers and replaced the center hinge screw on all of them.

Easiest way to hang a door and get it straight. Definitely watch the video on how to do it. Also, I drew two straight lines to help me double check myself when your trying to mark a plumb line. Watched many video on how to hang doors and few mentioned this amazing product!
by Milo
Believe the hype! I wish I found these years ago.
Hanging a door is usually a painful trial and error experience of adding shims, removing shims, nailing or screwing into place only to discover that the door reveal is off or you over shimmed a hinge. With this kit, it seriously took 5 minutes from start to finish. So unbelievably easy. Never again will I hang a door without this product...ever again!

I tried this product for the first time after hanging doors with frames/jam sets the old fashion way, with shims and a level. I must say first that I am replacing an older hollow core door and frame/jam set with a new solid core door and frame/jam set. I can see where this product would be perfect for new builds or remodels where the sheet rock around the door has not yet been mudded/taped and sanded. What I had to do was cut out sections of the mud layer where the brackets would mount so I could mud over them flush (see pictures). With a solid core door (very heavy) the video suggests replacing the middle screw of the hinges with a longer screw. I did this and twisted the head off the longer screw and didn't even get the screw all the way in. Had to remove the frame/jam set to remove the broken screw. What I did than was use a spacer/shims between the stud and jam then used a long Torx head deck screw through the jam stop. Once I had done this, I hung the door on the hinges and was able to secure the other side of the frame and adjust it for proper gap very easily. The product is very easy to use and the video was helpful. Good value and quality, but maybe not the perfect product I thought it was going to be. I gave it a Fair rating because of the extra work needed on this project. If I was going to hang doors on a new wall, it would have received 5 stars.

Must buy for any DIYer
I struggled for two hours trying to get a door level on the hinge side by myself. I thought my floor was messed up or the actually wood frame itself. I looked online and tried multiple techniques to get a pre hung door instaled and still couldnt get it. Then i found the video on this product and went to the store the next day. I hung the door up in 20 minutes solo and it was perfect fit, had to make one small adjustment on the bottom but that was human error not the product. Im using these on my next 6 doors. I also decided to still shim because it felt a little flexible, i definelty dont think i needed too though.

A must have for door installation! My only recommendation for the manufacturer is to include a 7th bracket for the top of the jam. This is especially helpful for rough-in installments where there is no siding yet. It helps get the depth right all around.

Yeah these are awesome. It does make the job easier. Although in the video they show the guy installing the prehung door with the door still attached. I'd say the best way to use these would be to remove the door, install the hangers, fit the hinge side (as the instructions specify), put the door back on it's hinges, and then fasten the other side while taking into account adjustments needed to put a correct gap for the door. I did two doors using these. With the first one I did have to install 3 sets of shims on the hinge side to stop the door from creaking and fit correctly. However with the second door it installed perfectly and I didn't need any. I also followed their recommendation and used longer construction screws for each of the middle hinge screws (to securly attach the door frame to the wall stud). Be careful when doing this though since you could pull the frame out of wack. You may need some shims to prevent or correct this (like I did for the first door).

It's good but not as fast or easy as I thought due to many variables. I installed two today. Here are some random notes from the installation: -The hangers are very thin and bend easily. Some were bent since they are sold in plastic bags. -One door frame wasn't straight and had to be planed down(nothing against this product) -If the hinge side is so close to the corner, it's hard to get your level in there and draw a perfectly straight line. -Still used shims to secure the door further and to keep the gap on the lock side evenly from top to bottom before screwing in the 3 screws. This was my first time installing doors by myself and I feel like I did a better job than few other guys I've hired, thanks to this product. You still should be pretty handy before you attempt a job like this. It took maybe 15 mins to remove the old trim, trim and frame and another 10-15 mins to install the new one. Better than paying a guy $75-150 to do it.

I have installed 4 doors in the past 6 months without the door hangers. For all the DIY projects that I have completed, I believe that the door installs were the most frustrating! While looking at doors online at homedepot.com, the door hangers popped up. Read reviews and decided to go buy the door and give the hangers a try. I purchased the hangers and door, watched the video above, and installed the door this morning. Total time to install the solid core pre-hung door was less than 15 minutes. Love the product!
