How to Repair Spring-Hinged Eyeglass Frames

Examine the spring hinge using a magnifying glass.

Press the safety pin against the base of the screw from the underside of the spring-hinge.

Maintain pressure on the safety pin while backing the screw out. The temple hole and the chassis hole remain properly aligned throughout the process.

Re-insert the screw. Retreat the safety pin so the tension on the spring-hinge does not slip before the screw is seated.

Dab a little nail polish on the screw’s head. Let it dry.

Cover the eye glass lens with a cleaning cloth. Spray a small amount of WD-40 or another lubricant on the screw. Wait one minute. Wipe off the excess.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have a new screw the same size as the original, use the new screw in step 4 and skip step 5.
