Lift Joint or Loose Pin Hinges: These cabinet hinges are great if you have the want to get rid of your cabinet doors on occasion. The door is removed by removing the pin (with just a tap of a blunt edge- not superior for curious little ones!) and/or lifting the door up and over the hinge. Although you may possibly not see the advantage straight off, this is actually excellent for cleaning or refinishing the doors and cabinets. In addition, if you want to redo your kitchen without having spending a lot of cash, you can replace the cabinet doors without the need of getting to completely redo the cabinets.
Lastly, like many other brands, the wall cabinets will arrive with the adjustable shelves pre-installed with tiny plastic shipping clamps to steer clear of loss or damage. That is not a user friendly means of moving shelves and really should be changed out before cabinets are installed, or at least just before becoming utilised by owner. Just be confident to have your dealer agree to provide the uncomplicated adjustable shelf pins.
Are you certain they’re glued on? Most strap hinges come with supportive screws, so no gluing is important. If you’re refinishing anyway (and there is glue involved), I’d attempt a) adhesive remover b) rubbing alcohol c) anything with orange oil (this works wonderful to break down the sticky adhesive). Most of these points will discolor your finish, but if you happen to be repainting or sanding anyway, this will not be an concern. Great luck, and post some pics when it’s completed!
