How to adjust hinges the right way.

Hinges are an essential part of a cabinet. They are designed to last a long time but they may need adjustment based on usage. Homedepot shared an amazing tutorial on Pinterest. Here is the snapshot.

A few keys when adjusting hinges

  1. Use a manual screwdriver to adjust hinges, using an electric screwdriver could cause damage to the cabinet for beginners. 
  2. Slowly turn the screws gently to adjust, same reason as the one above.
  3. Adjustment done to one door must be done to another for two-door cabinets and pantries.
  4. Make sure to test all adjustments when complete, if the door makes squeaking noise, the hinges may need to be loosened a bit or the door is hitting another object.
