Tension hinges

Is there any way to adjust the tension on these tension hinge entry doors? My hauler has 2 and both are quite stiff. My better half and grandkids have a heck of a time with them.

I would like to know the answer to that also. Mine are stiff and hold the ramp about a foot off the ground. I can't see anyway to adjust.

Just give it time, after awhile they start to loosen up and then before you know it there is no tension.
