  2. -When you screw the hinge in place, make sure that it sits perfectly flush with the door so you don’t end up with crooked doors.
  3. -When installing multiple doors, use a level to mark a line for the second cabinet door. Holding the level against the bottom of the first cabinet door, draw a line under the opening for the second door. This line will give you the proper angle to match the second door up to the first door.
