Fixing the Door's Broken Hinge Pegs: Volume 1

After: door swings just fine. put the original peg in first, then carefully bend door in the middle to place new tape hinge under and into the upper hole (use upper as that is less pressure on the hinge as the bottom hole), the hole itself ends up molding what was once a flat square mound of layers of tape into the exact shape and size peg that is needed. 

Seems to be sticking on there just fine, though glue could be added to tape to make sure it doesn't slide off. 

Tape mound came from left over tape trim from resurfacing the faded windows with hardware aisle tape. 

closet doors: un molded new peg, will probably not work to well for the longer bottom peg on these doors but haven't tried it. 
This is the quick, easy fix. I am about to try drilling a tiny hole into the closet door edge that is missing the long peg and sticking a wire in it as suggested by a subscriber. Ill post about that after.

  1. I did the drill and peg method for my own house, with a touch of glue to reinforce it. It worked beautifully!

    1. That's great, I prefer that method to this one since it's permanent. Glad the blog is helpful for you.
