A simple tip for easier drilling

A magnetic nut setter tip attaches the screw to your drill magnetically, so you don’t have to hold it while you drill. It’s like having a second pair of hands to hold the screw in place.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the brackets to the cabinet
2 Install the hinges into the frosted doors
3 Attach the first door to the cabinet
4 Attach the rest of the frosted door
  • Step 1. Attach the brackets to the cabinet

    To make this project easier, the holes for the brackets are pre-drilled into the cabinet. Hold the bracket in position and make sure it is pointing the right direction. Use your cordless drill to tighten the two screws until the bracket is secure. Repeat this process to install all of the other brackets into the cabinet.

  • Step 2. Install the hinges into the frosted doors

    After securing the brackets, attach the hinges to the frosted doors. Just slip the hinges into the door frame and use a screwdriver to tighten the two screws on the hinges. Repeat this process to install the other hinges onto the frosted doors.
  • Step 3. Attach the first door to the cabinet

    To attach the frosted door to the cabinet, lift the door so that the hinge is level with the top bracket.  Then push it in and lock it down into the bracket. After you have fitted the top hinge, use your screwdriver to adjust the lower bracket so that the hinge lines up. When adjusting the bracket, make sure that the bottom of the frosted door is flush with the bottom of the cabinet. 
  • Step 4. Attach the rest of the frosted door

    Repeat the process to install the rest of the frosted doors in your kitchen cabinet. After the cabinet doors are installed you can make the final adjustments. Use a screwdriver to adjust the hinges, so that the doors are sitting flush to the bottom of the cabinet.
