    Our front door is coming apart at the other section where it’s hooks to hinges. Would buying some clamps pull it back together? I was going to add some more glue before putting in clamps and countersinking some small nails after (if) I can get the door to pull back together

    Any help would be awesome

    Bigger question is what caused the failure to begin with.
    Water must be making contact with the door...
    One thought (or recommendation) is to make sure a well sealed, storm door is in place.
    Then the repairs will stay repaired if the door is not damaged to badly.

    Clamps should draw it together, however if the glue failed, it may need to be pulled apart first, and new glue applied to the entire surface, than reassembled. Otherwise it may just be a surface application which wont Last. But pics will help. A door should not need a storm door to last if it is properly maintained. It needs to be sealed on all 6 sides to last.

    If it's the hinge plate coming apart on a wooden door nails would not be much help .Screws could prolong the inevitable meaning replacing the door .It's usually not a big deal to replace a prehung door,couple hours more or less .Not however a job best done in the dead of winter .It will warm up some day or at least it always has in the past .
