Installation instructions

A quick learner from Princeton, Maine says:
I need the proper instructions to install the 40-165 hinge pins, especially to replace the middle pin. My screen door has 4 hinges but I have noticed most kits only come with 3 springs/hinge sets. I think the door in Sears, it was already on when we bought our home and I cannot find any manufacturer on the door. Thank you,Luann

Mike from SWISCO responded:
The 40-165 hinge pins should not be difficult to install. Try installing the bearings first, and then pop in the spring loaded pins.
A home owner from O'Fallon, IL says:
In response to a customer's question concerning instructions for storm door hinge pin replacement, your representative replied, "Install bearings first then pop in the spring loaded pins".

Since your illustration does not show any bearings, did he meam to use the word "bushing"?

I appreciate your rapid shipping response as well as the opportunity to ask questions.
