  • Step 1. Install the hinges for the door

    Remove the hinges from their plates by pushing on the release tabs. Then screw the plates into position on the cabinet. Now screw the hinges into place on the back of the door. Attach the door to the cabinet by clicking the hinges back on to the plates.

  • Step 2. Install the gas struts for the door

    There are several pre-drilled holes in the sides of the cabinet. These are where you need to screw the round plates for the gas struts. Then screw the rectangular plates into the pre-drilled holes on the door. Now simply click the struts into place on the two plates.
