Before starting the installation, gather the necessary tools. These include a tape measure and level for measuring and aligning, a woodworking pencil for marking and positioning, a woodworking hole saw or pistol drill for drilling hinge cup holes, and a screwdriver for fixing.

2. Line Drawing and Positioning:

To begin, use an installation measuring board or woodworking pencil to mark the positioning of the hinge on the cabinet door. The drilling edge distance is typically around 5mm. Use a pistol drill or woodworking hole opener to drill a 35mm hinge cup installation hole on the door panel. The depth of the hole should be approximately 12mm.

3. Fixing the Hinge Cup:

Insert the door hinge into the hinge cup hole on the door panel and secure the hinge cup with self-tapping screws.

The last step is to test the effect of opening and closing the cabinet door. Ensure that the door opens and closes smoothly without any obstructions.

Some cabinet door hinges offer tool-free installation for added convenience. Follow these steps:

1. Connect the Hinge Base and Hinge Arm:

Align the arrow marks on the hinge base and hinge arm, and connect them.

2. Buckle the Hinge Arm:

Buckle the tail of the hinge arm downward.

How to Install the Hinge Correctly:

Proper installation of hinges is crucial for their functionality and longevity. Here are some important considerations:

1. Minimum Door Margin:

Determine the minimum door margin between the cabinet doors before installation. The minimum door edge distance depends on the type of hinge, hinge cup margin, and door panel thickness. It is recommended to perform a test installation based on the actual situation.

2. Selection of Hinge Number:

The number of hinges used for the door panel should be determined based on its width, height, weight, and material. For heavier doors, such as solid wood doors, three hinges are typically used to ensure proper support and prevent deformation.

3. Hinge Adaptation to Cabinet Shape:

Consider the shape of the cabinet when selecting hinges. Cabinets with built-in rotatable pull baskets require hinges with a large curvature to allow for a wide opening angle and convenient access to items.

4. Selection of Hinge Installation Method:

Choose the appropriate hinge installation method based on the type of cabinet door. Options include full cover door, half cover door, and embedded door installation methods, depending on the desired door coverage and presence of partitions or sideboards.

5. Adjustment of the Door Panel:

Hinges often come with adjustment options to fine-tune the door panel's position and alignment. Utilize these adjustment features to ensure a proper fit. Always tighten the screws after making adjustments to secure the hinges in place.

Types of Hinges:

The article briefly introduces various types of hinges based on their use and design. These include ordinary hinges, light hinges for lighter doors and windows, core-pulling hinges for easy disassembly, square hinges for heavy-duty applications, H-type hinges for wider doors, and screen door spring hinges for automatic closing.
