STEP 01

Check that the measures of the frame match the measures of the door. Maximum clearances for the doors are 3/8″ (10 mm) from the bottom and 3/16″(5 mm) from the sides and top.

STEP 02

Before you begin with the marking of the MARIX hinge and of the upper pivot, remember to check the wall’s perpendicularity with the plumb-bob. If the wall goes wide on the lower part, firstly mark the upper pivot. Otherwise, start with the hinge.

STEP 03

Mark the upper pivot, considering that the pivot axis has to be at a distance of 2-3/4″(70 mm) from the wall. After this marking is done, drill a hole and insert the ribbed plastic anchors.

STEP 04

Make the pivot center match the center of the MARIX hinge using the plumb-bob. Mark the hinge placement site using the template you will find on the inner side of the hinge box, placing the larger tab towards the wall.

STEP 05

Drill a hole on the floor with a 1-1/2″ (40 mm) diamond-tipped saw drill bit up to a depth of 2-3/4″(70 mm). Thoroughly clean the hole, checking that the depth is the correct one. Insert the MARIX hinge on hole, level it to the floor and align it with the frame axis.

STEP 06

After placing the hinge, mark the center of the four affixation screws. Remove the hinge and drill the holes for the screws on the markings you have just made. Use a 5/16″(8 mm) drill bit to drill the holes. Once the holes are done, insert the ribbed plastic anchors.

STEP 07

After the holes for the 4 screws have been drilled, insert the hinge on the central hole. Close the door, align the hinge and only then tighten the screws. After the screws are tightly in, correctly place the hinge cover over the MARIX hinge, as shown in the drawing. Congrats! Your MARIX hinge is now correctly installed.

STEP 08

Mount the door on top of the Marix door closer in the closed position. If the door is not properly aligned with the lock, loosen the screws, align the door to the lock and retighten the screws.

Your door with the new Marix door closer is installed.
