Question: How To Adjust European Style Cabinet Door Hinges?

How do European hinges work?

On a standard European hinge, one plate features a cup that rests inside a 35mm hole bored into the back of the cabinet door, while the other plate attaches to the interior side of the face-frame or frameless cabinet box.

How do you fix a cabinet door that doesn’t close all the way?

The front adjustment screw controls the distance between the hinge and the side of the cabinet. When this distance is too great, the cabinet door won’t close because it’s tilted. Simply turn this screw counterclockwise to reduce the distance and straighten the door.
