    door_reverse...
  • Pull out the top pin
    door_reverse...
  • Using your finger as a guide, draw a line along the door top that marks the distance of the hole from the back edge
    door_reverse...
  • do the same thing to draw a line along the door base that marks the distance of the hole from the back edge
    door_reverse...
  • Put the bottom pin in the from the inside (you'll use it to make a new hole so the sharp end is useful)

  • Slide the needle nosed plyers along the pin until the thickness of the jaw fills the space between the pin and the door frame - this thickness becomes a measure for the distance from the hole to the frame.  Grab the pin.

  • Lay the plyers on the frame on the other side of the opening.  The plyers are spacing the pin the same distance from the frame.  Push the pin into the wood at the line, nice and straight.

  • When you have the pin started, look it over to make sure it's spaced properly and straight.  Push the pin thru the door base.

  • Now, put the pin into the top hole.   You're going to do the same thing at the top
    door_reverse...
  • Grab the pin such that the plyers become a spacer
    door_reverse...
  • Push the pin into the wood at the line...
    door_reverse...
  • ... about half way in
    door_reverse...
  • Put the top pin into the new top-pin hole
    door_reverse...
  • Push it half way in
    door_reverse...
  • Feed the top of the door onto the top pin - tip it in from the back of the frame
    door_reverse...
  • Start the bottom pin
    door_reverse...
  • You have to move the door around and feel for the hole
    door_reverse...
  • Once you find it, push the pin all the way in
