Garage pass thru door

So, I have my door off to re-glue the glass as every door in the hauler has loose glass. It also has sagged as its very heavy and quite large! Anybody done a good old fashion fix! I thought about flipping it and re-drilling hinges. Tie/clamp it down and install a stiffener plate on the garage side. Any ideas?

Nobody has a problem with their door rubbing the threshold?!

On occasion mine has been rubbing on the threshold. I usually go through all the screws and tighten them on the door and jamb. I keep the door closed at all times so it's supported and the chance of it drooping is less.
A stiffener plate could work but I wouldn't be surprised the door is hollow core so your plate will work if screwed to the stiles on the sides and bottom.

I think a cross door tension rod with turnbuckle might be an alternative also.

Turnbuckle would be simple and most likely work the best....just not look the best. The door is solid, as in very heavy solid pressboard!

So....looks like I'll be replacing the twin glass panel door at some point. I straightened up the sag and glued the glass back in which might help hold it square. The pressed paper door weighs just shy of 60 lbs! With everything in these haulers made paper thin and light weight....why a 60 lb door?!!

Ba ba ba because it's fire protection of some sort between the garage and the living quarters.

I have had a few issues with my doors sticking when I am way off level but no issues once I am set up and relatively flat. Often times I am going in and out of the garage when unloading before I am leveled and donít think I have ever an issue with my Voltage 3305.
