Step 1: Identify the location of the push to open mechanism

The cabinet type and location will determine the setting needs for the mechanism. Base cabinets require the mechanism to be installed on the top of the cabinet across the support railing. Wall cabinets require the mechanisms to be installed on the bottom of the cabinet. While, pantries require the mechanisms to be installed on the support rail of the fixed shelf.

Step 2: Attach the mounting plates to the cabinet
The push latch is available with either a cruciform or linear mounting plate for an elegant finish. Determine which way you want the door to open, you can then place the hinge plate on the left or right side of the cabinet. Use the screwdriver to fix the mounting plate into the side of the cabinet, as per positioning suggestions above. The cruciform mounting plate uses a 32/37 standard drilling pattern. The auto alignment feature makes it easy to install and compensate for any inaccuracies in drilling.

Pro-Tip: There will be an arrow on the hinges which will face towards the front of the cabinet, once installed. 


Step 3: Attach the push latch mechanism to the door

The push latch attaches to the mounting plate with just a snap! Simply align the end of the mechanism to the end of the mounting plate and push down on the front of the mechanism until it clicks into place.
