Rotate the picture 90 degrees clockwise and I need the pin that goes in the bottom holder. The stopper is simply a screw and works just fine. My door hangs down slightly and its irritating me to no end.

Either that or the exact width I would need to put something in there so the door closes perfect again.

Thanks

That is ok. I thought that mutting it in the Manta directory would have sorted that out.

But I do have a question...

If you look real close at the bottom pin, there is a rise that looks like it can be just pounded in to hold the door in place. The bolt that is there now (from previous owner) has its head sitting right on top of it.

Would I be able to get a C-clamp and compress this into the door and have it hold like new again?

There is another way of doing this. If you contact a Fastener supply house (yellow pages, or internet) an ask for a "roll pin", "lock pin", or "split pin" in the size and length needed, and especially get a "hardened" pin, you can eliminate this problem
