The first ring doorbell I ever purchased was a 1970s style single-sided ring door that had screw holes that had to be drilled out to fit the doorbell, and it was still not completely installed.
When I tried the door, I was disappointed with the screw holes and the fact that it would not lock the door.
But I was soon hooked and bought a ring door from my local hardware store.
The ring door was a joy to use and function flawlessly.
I had no idea how well the door worked, until I realized that the screw was not drilled out and the screw could be bent if the door were to open and close.
As you can see in the video below, the screw had to bend a bit before the door would lock, and the problem was magnified with the door closing.
To solve this, I designed a ring to be fitted to the door that would not need to be removed for the door to lock.
I used the same hardware store that sells ring door parts, and I also had a handy tool that I could use to make a small, custom screw.
Here is how it works: Take your ring door screw and cut it into 1/4-inch strips.
With your tool, drill holes on both sides of the ring door.
Next, drill a hole in the center of the screw.
You may need to use a flathead screwdriver to secure the ring to the wall or floor.
After you secure the screw to the ring, attach the ring by screwing it to the screw in the same way you attach the screw on a door to prevent it from moving.
Once the ring is securely screwed in place, you will see the screw begin to bend.
The more you bend it, the more likely the door will lock.
It’s important to note that the ring does not need a screwdriver for the ring.
You can use a nail, a small screwdriver, or a bolt cutter.
These are all great ways to attach a ring without a screw.
I hope this article helped you understand the importance of screw-less doors and ring doors.
