Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the hinges plates to the cabinet
2 Attach the hinges to the door
3 Attach the push to open mechanism
4 Fit the magnetic plate
  • Step 1. Attach the hinges plates to the cabinet

    Use a drill and the four screws provided in the pack to fix the upper and lower hinge plates into the side of the cabinet in the pre-drilled holes. There’s an arrow on the hinges which should face towards the front of the cabinet. Depending on which way you want the door to open, you can place the hinges on the left or right side of the cabinet.

  • Step 2. Attach the hinges to the door

    Use the cordless drill and the four screws to attach the top and bottom hinges to the cabinet door. To attach the door, line up the door’s hinges with the hinge plates in the cabinet and clip them in. Use a screwdriver to make the door level. After adjusting the level, push the caps onto the hinges.
  • Step 3. Attach the push to open mechanism

    Hold the push to open mechanism at the top of the cabinet, in the corner that is on the opposite side of the hinges and pre-drill two holes using a small drill bit. Then secure it to the underside of the cabinet, using the screws that have been provided. 

  • Step 4. Fit the magnetic plate

    Fit the magnetic plate on the centre of the push to open mechanism. Peel the sticker off the back of the magnetic plate and close the cabinet door onto it. The magnetic plate will now be stuck on the cabinet door in the correct position.
