Purchased for my parents 3-year-old condo that came with the "builders special" garage door which would rattle when it would be windy causing the garage to be hotter or colder. Original hinge system was noisy as well when you raised and lowered the garage door. Purchased via a recommendation from one of their neighbors who installed these hinges on the same exact garage door type. Easy to install and the instructions that came in the package with the 6 hinges were easy to read. After replacing all six hinges, myself and my dad were able to lift the garage door while being disconnected from the garage door opener to test the rollers. After reconnecting the garage door to the garage door opener, I pressed the garage door opener and the garage door was much quieter when it went up and was also much quieter as well when I closed the door. After the door was down, we pressed on the garage door which usually would move and the door was solid. I recommend these hinges for any new builds or older garage doors that are not insulated.

Hello Editors of Handyman,
Thank for turning me on to the Green Hinge System!
I found out about this thru your magazine along with a host of a lot of useful helpful information.
The hinges did exactly what they claimed to do. My garage door is now more insulated/tighter and Quieter!
No more leaking air gaps.
They are a high product and the the installation was seamless!
I attached some pics to show the quality of these hinges, no air gaps and they look great.
I had called Green Hinge System and had the pleasure to speak with Lester ( The Inventor), he was very helpful and informative.
Thank you Lester for coming up with this.
The service and delivery was excellent!
I will be recommending this to all.
Thank you Handyman for having this information!

Every garage door manufacturer should be upgrading their product with Green Hinges!
I live in New Hampshire where cold weather and snow frequents us from October through May. My stock Garaga door seals were easily defeated by winter winds and were noisy year round in windy conditions. Green Hinges make my 10 bay doors quieter both when stationary (wind gusts) and during operation (smoother movement). As a bonus, I'll save a bundle on heating my 5,000 square foot facility because Green Hinges make my stock Garaga weather seals more effective.
I strongly suggest that you share with major door manufacturers and tell them "This is what your clients want- hinges that make doors better at sealing out cold weather and bugs.
Where have these hinges been for the last 20 years? I live in North Carolina where we have terrible storms and hurricanes. I purchased these Green Hinges after hurricane Florence. My garage doors were already a little loose, rattled a lot when operating, let in bugs, heat, cold and water, but I thought they were gonna blow-in during the hurricane. Actually I put plastic shims in between the track and rollers to help hold them still during the extreme winds. The Green Hinges arrived and I immediately installed them. It took me about 30 minutes to install on 2 residential 4 panel doors. It was so easy and the directions were great. I noticed the difference immediately; there was no light shining in around my doors and from the outside I was not able to push the doors in or make them rattle, they are very tight. Also, My doors no longer shake and rattle upon operating them. I am not in any hurry for another hurricane, but am confident these green hinges will perform as advertised. I have already given
your business cards and website information to neighbors and family to buy for their doors!
