Adjusting door where i can’t get to allen key
I’m looking to adjust my door as it won’t lock and has clearly dropped at the top, however it’s on a park home and there is no way of getting to the Allen key hole in the back of the hinges because they are tight against the wall any ideas ??

The hinges don’t always cure a dropped door it sounds like the door needs toe n heeling to cure the issue if the door is banging on the jamb of the lock side then an Allen key would be required to adjust

Some hinges have a cover over were allan key goes ..open door look at hinge from inside it may have 2 screws if it does loosen
/undo them (dont drop them ) you should get to allan key then 4mm I think but as said in another answer it could need toe and heeling
