Don't let broken pivot hinges compromise your security

If you hire a professional from Locksmith Palm Springs, replacing a door pivot hinge should take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the number of hinges you need replace as well as mitigating factors (such as age of door, complexity of the project, etc.)
