I watched the video. Not as easy to hand start the screws ,as shown, in the new hinges (I replaced both) I used a drill with a phillips bit to pre start the screws with the hinge in a vise. It then had threads cut, which made it possible to hand start, and I finished with the drill/bit to tighten up.
