    raised 10 mm higher up on the hinges

    Hello all users!

    The door was raised 10 mm higher up on the hinges by doing the following activities:
    dismantling and fitting back the hinge eyes, grinding them and mounting washers:

    The fragment in bold type is at the same time my question.

    The thing is that the hinge at the door frame should remain untouched (unchanged), one just lifts the door 10 mm higher by placing some more washers between the fixed hinge fastened to the door frame and the hinge fastened to the door itself.

    Does the sentence "The door was raised 10 mm higher up on the hinges" show that I have expressed myself properly? Maybe the sentence should read: The door was raised 10 mm higher up along the hinges by doing the following activities or The door was lifted 10 mm higher up on the hinges by doing the following activities.

    Thank you.

    Re: raised 10 mm higher up on the hinges

    not a teacher

    I think that "raised" and "lifted" are equally clear, although perhaps "up" and "activities" are unneccesary.

    The door was raised/lifted 10mm higher on its/the hinges by doing the following: (presumably a numbered list, or something similar, follows).
