  • 9-13-2017 Stare at a clothespin until you think you can remember what the spring looks like. Go to a hardware store and buy a spring that looks similar. Remove the pin from the hinge on the offending door and slip the spring over it. Put it back in. Now the door will stay open, but you can close it if you want to.
