Anti Finger Trap Doors

Hi wondering if anyone has an idea how to adjust the fitment of an anti finger trap door.
Not a door with a finger guard, the exterior aluminum doors on a big cylindrical hinge.
It need lifting slightly, is this possible?
Thanks Tyler

Without knowing the exact type, advice is difficult.

However,
Usually, on the top of the door (hinged side) there will be a bracket that may have slipped. There may also be an adjustment bolt for finer tweaking.

Yes I agree with Timmydog. The adjustment is under the bottom of the door. I have seen it done, but never done it myself. We have a guy from Manchester who comes and he makes it look relatively simple. But he has these doors on and off all day. He is very good at his job and not expensive at all if anyone needs him. He is a locksmith and has key cutting in his van as well as doing door springs etc. So anyone near Manchester, I can highly recommend Ian, Ashton Lock and Spring. His number is 07814 086997. Hope this is OK with CT for me to pass this info on!
