Default Transom Door Hinges

My transom Door is rattling a bit and found out that the hinges at a bit loose. The problem is it has a strange screw head. One aide is a normal Philips head, but the other side is what looks like a round but with a slot for a flathead but the screw goes through it. Does anybody know what kind of nut is this?

I believe what you are refering to is a barrel nut. Should unscrew by using a flat blade and whatever is required by the mating screw.

Not exactly, as the screw goes through it therefore a flathead wonít workIMG_2074.jpg

It looks like some type of pop rivets. What does the other side look like?

Take a flat head screw driver of the proper size and grind a notch in it for clearance, I think you will find that you can now tighten the hinge. Or remove it and find a shorter screw or grind it down a little.

The other side is just a regular Philips. I will try to find a flat driver wide enough for the notch. I will let you know

As Mike said, it's a barrel nut.

You need a 'Slotted Spanner Nut Driver' for that barrel nut.

Donald provided the solution by suggesting you make one by grinding the center section of a flathead screwdriver.

Exactly!, I could not remember the name of the tool. I knew spanner was in the name.
