How to connect your kitchen cabinets


The following guide explains how to connect units together the correct way so that all your units line up perfectly.

Unpack your kitchen units and place them loosely in the kitchen where they will be situated. Once the cabinets are in position, level them up by using the adjustment on the kitchen unit feet. Now, clamp the units together as shown in the diagram below.

Next drill the cabinets at top and bottom near to the front edge of the cabinet. The hole drilled needs to be diameter 5mm to suit the cabinet connector supplied in the fittings box.

Now fit the 2 part cabinet connectors in the drilled holes and tighten to secure the cabinets together.
