Screen doors or glass doors need heavyweight hinges in order to perform their task. Solid brass hinges tend to perform better than the "residential grade" hinges found at most hardware stores. The hinge pin in the brass hinges allows for easy installation. It allows the installer to be able to trial hang the door without having to remove the finials every time.
Using a quality grade hinge will help your screen or glass door last longer and shut properly.
