Question Adjusting self-closing hinge?

The self-closing hinges on our screen door hasn't been fully closing the door like they were. I have tried looking around for instructions on adjusting them, but these hinges don't match any of the ones I have been able to find.

Is there a way to adjust them?

No, they are probably worn out and need to be replaced.

Ok, thanks very much. I suspected that might be the case.

Looks like the screws are loose. Try tightening the screws and see if that helps.
