How do I install my hinges?
This is a common question we get.
Thankfully, we made a useful video to help you out!
Still having a hard time? Our friends at Hintsandthings.co.uk made this great reference guide which we've copied below on how to properly adjust door hinges. It shows the three areas for adjustment plus what each point does:
How To Adjust Door Hinges
What to do if the hinge comes out?
The hinge can be reinserted with wood glue. Be sure to let it dry/cure before reattaching the door. If the hinge and screws pulled out of the cabinet, it is likely that the hinge was too tightly adjusted.
If you need a new hinge or screw inserts we can send replacements for that, as well. Just send us an email to email@example.com with your name, model number, and proof of purchase.
2018 Pro and Peninsula Hinges
If you have purchased a Pro or Peninsula system from an Authorized Waterbox Dealer, you may have a 2018 model cabinet. In these cabinets, the manual includes two types of hinges as seen below.
NOTE: If you purchased from waterboxaquariums.com, your system will NOT have these two hinges and instead have one type of hinge. Please disregard.
The taller hinges (C1003) go on all exterior doors and the shorter hinges (C1002) are for interior wall mounted doors. Below is a reference photo that shows the placement of the two types of hinges on these cabinets.
Recent updates to cabinets:
- The panels inside the cabinet, the surface materials are replaced with black pockmark, but the front lowers of the white cabinet are white painted.
- UV5526, 6026, 7226 and UVD series, the hinge will be updated to one type, only use the concealed hinge with inset overlay type, (concealed hinge with half overlay type will not be used again).
