I have never had a door warp because I removed it. However, if it is a cheap hollow (masonite) door...the screw holes will strip out if you don't support the door when removing it. This will keep the hinges from seeding properly and cause the door to hit the jamb.

I have to agree with JP on this one. Removing the doors and hinges allows for a quality prep and paint job. Caulking around hinges looks horrible.

Here is a video of how Hinge Mask works, see if you guys agree that it is better than masking of hinges or removing them.

The guy in the video at about 40 seconds looked kind of like an old original member who has not participated in some time named Joe Who.

It said you invented them? When did you do that? I have seen them since about 03 or so.

Careful how you proceed as PT is not a place to push your products if you are seeking sales look into some advertisement.

Hinge Mask - YouTube
No...I do not agree. Removing them isn't time consuming at all. I doubt I have ever spent more than 1 man hour removing and re-installing hinges.

I am not pushing any product, as you can see I did not start this thread. I am 4th generation union contractor and have been in business for nearly 30 years. I have been using this product to help me stay competitive ever since it was invented.

That said I am the inventor. It is a good product and in my opinion the best time saving/ labor saving product when it comes to painting doors. I haven't linked any website, I've only stated my opinion on it and showed a video.

That is how I saw it to that is why I just gave you the heads up.

I do not want my wet paint even 3 days after I spray or brush a door and jamb to have any contact with each other. If a door is hanging, the probability of wind or a HO or someone closing a door on wet or fresh paint is high.

We always pull hinges because that hour it takes to remove and replace a whole house is nothing in comparison to the alternative. Besides, the tops and bottoms should always be painted.

These things work fantastic, I've been using them for awhile now. The only issue I have with these, is that they don't make a 3" hinge cover, I have to buy the 3 1/2" magnets and trim them down to 3". All the jobs I do here in Canada have 3" hinges.

Ideal for spraying. Shoot the doors and casings, let dry and take them off and clean the little bit of overspray "minimal". It's a huge time saver.

There is two types of these, the ones with the rubber boot that covers the hinge pin and the one with the flap. I've only bought the ones with the boot, I have to say, the boots are useless, they fall off every time you open the door, so I ended up taping the pins, which causes a problem as well "you understand if you've done it. But,I found a solution for that. If you oil the round part of the pin the tape sticks to the flat surface and does not wrinkle up and tear the tape. If you have other solutions, I'm all ears.

I use the 3m blue tape hinge covers. I'm not a total fan of blue tape but these really work. Hard to find. I purchased 5 rolls for a dollar apiece at a local hardware store. they were just trying to get rid of them. when I ran out of them I had to order off of ebay and pay 10 per roll but they are well worth it.

The blue tape hinge covers sounds like a great idea, but I would still have to cut the to fit. Also, it does not cover the middle part of the hinge. Putting a piece of tape in the middle will not withhold the opening and closing of the door.

The great thing about the magnets is that I can reuse them over and over and they keep the doors from closing when I shoot them. I am in the middle of a huge project of 4 plexes, 24 doors each, 72 hinges. I bought a pack of 90 to try out and I have reused these things 10 times already. The down side was that I had to trim them to 3" with scissors. and they cost about 1$ a piece.

Default Plastic hinge cover

Plastic hinge covers, I see them used all the time. They just snap on the hinge.

Of course this only works if your pulling doors and with only one size of hinge. You'll have to google, don't remember who makes them.

As far as warping, have only seen this happen with wood doors leaned against a wall on an excessive angle for an extended period of time. If you stand them upright (ready to spray) right away, you'll never have a problem.

I still stick to my 3 m hinge tape. I've used the magnets, I've used the plastic hinge covers and they get gunked up after awhile I am totally sold on the 3m. you stick them on. they seriously fit any hinge if you turn them right . I've never had them bleed. you get 60 for about 10 dollars on amazon. that's 20 doors and well worth the money IMO

1 door/jamb would take 6 pieces equaling 60 pieces for 10 doors. $10 is way too expensive and it still doesn't totally mask off the hinge. If you have to tape the just put a piece of 1.5" blue lined up with the edge and trim the corners with a razor knife carefully.

Could you link me to the tape you are using? I have actually never seen it or tried it. You mentioned you had tried Hinge Mask and I was just wondering what you meant by they get gunked up after a while?

My company invented them just want to put that out there, not trying to market the product as I know that's a big no no. Just want to hear what your experience has been.
