Hanging Half Doors On Wall

i'm going to go to lowes this weekend to get some hinges to mount on the wall so that i can hang my doors from them. i have half doors with sliding glass uppers. i'm just wondering if the weight of the doors and glass sliders will be ok on just the two hinges. i know most people will say yes because thats how they are mounted on the vehicle. but the doors are shut more than they are open when on the jeep. and it seems that when they are shut, the handle latch and door seal on the bottom would help support some of the weight.

Suggestion......I use the "exstension ladder" brackets for my uppers only 2 needed...I never feel the need to remove the lower halfs but another set of the large "L"-shaped brackets would solve that problem.....menard's has 'em for about $2 a piece so less than $10 and solid!!!

Separate the upper from the lower and hang each piece by itself.

Only bad things can happen with them connected.

Here are a couple pics...basically shows the ladder hook/ hanger thing....these are spaced so that both of my sliders or my soft uppers can sit on them....and I also use it to keep the shop vac hose and attachments out of the way...hope this helps???

It is the upper brackets that I am talking about.

Pictures aren't showing for me. Would they be Ok as long as I hang the uppers separately?

I realize that you are talking about half doors but this is an idea from Q-tec.

i'm thinking about getting the hinges for the door to hang from, but maybe adding a shelf underneath to support most of the weight. something like this....

What are you using to hang your doors/soft top? - Page 2

i searched 2 different Lowes hardware stores this past weekend, and couldn't find any kind of hinges that would allow something to hang from them. all the hinges i found were solid in the hinge part. they didn't have any holes for something to go in. where is everyone getting their hinges from?
