Why won't my doors close after taking them off

I can't figure out what's wrong
It's simple....line the pins up and close.....right
The latch won't line up

I'm guessing to much Van Halen and to much vodka.

Your door retaining strap isn't on the pin. Fix that and it'll be fine.

Is it bad that I looked at the first picture and went: "Looks right to me." I didn't notice the issue until the second picture.

WOW what a coincidence! Mine won't close after taking them off either. I have to put them back on before they will close.

It's. Not down all the way. If you look really close to the first picture, you can see a gap in the hinge.


I would hit the top of the door with a 15lb sledge hammer. That should get it seated properly.
