CABINET ADJUSTMENTS

The finishing touch.



A successful and beautiful installation requires proper door and drawer adjustments. These fine-tuning adjustments are the responsibility of the installer and all adjustments can be performed with a Phillips head screwdriver. Drawer fronts are adjustable by different methods, depending on the drawer system.  
*Be sure to adjust the doors BEFORE drilling for handles or knobs.
 

DOOR ADJUSTMENTS

A. Left & Right Door Adjustment:
Turn this screw for horizontal (left or right) door adjustments. Use this to align the reveals, or gaps, between adjacent doors and drawers. Proper door alignment usually requires adjusting upper and lower hinges (and middle hinge on tall cabinets).

B. Up & Down Door Adjustment:
Loosen both screws on each door hinge to allow for vertical door adjustment. Support the weight of the door with one hand while lifting or lowering the door into alignment with the other.  Tighten all screws when adjustment is complete.

C. In & Out Door Adjustment:
Loosen this screw to manually move the door in or out.  Use this to adjust the door so it evenly contacts the cabinet box at top and bottom. Tighten screw when adjustment is complete.

D. Remove & Replace Door:
Easily remove the door by pressing quick release mechanism/button  located at the back of the hinge. To replace the door, align the hinge over the hinge plate and press firmly until the locks back into place.
Note: This process does not interfere with hinge adjustments.
