Tighten or Stiffen Patio Door Hinges

Hi all,

We had some patio doors fitted about 6-8 months ago and have noticed that they now move more freely than when installed, understandably. Is there a way to tighten the hinges so that they increase resistance to blowing shut in the wind.

No friction adjustment.
Cabin hooks and door restricters required

Sorry should have said we have bars fitted on the top of the doors that restrict open swing, it's the wind blowing them shut that we're trying to stop.

There are friction screws on the door restricters! Need to get quite high up and look at the top of the door where the restrictor is screwed on. There is a gold flat headed screw in like a white plastic block do it up tight
