Cabinet Hinge Repair Kit
Cabinet Hinge Repair Kit
Our Cabinet Hinge Repair Kit is designed to repair the interiors of cabinets commonly found in Kitchens, Bathrooms, Living Rooms, Dining Rooms, Offices, Garages and even Boats.
The Kit is designed to fit the most commonly made ∅26-35mm cabinet hinges and allows you to re-hang the existing door, when the existing cabinet carcass is damaged, saving you great frustration and considerable expense.
It can be used by homeowners, the construction industry, social housing contractors, salvage companies, kitchen manufacturers and refurbisher's to mention just a few.
Search around the internet and you’ll typically find a solution that has been around for years. The “Metal Plate” has been used to make repairs to Cabinets without consideration for the change in hinge dimensions, location in the carcass or the different qualities of MDF/Chip/Particleboard used by different manufacturers.
The metal plate and concealed are often supplied with only the cheapest Wood Screws to fix the plate and the hinge to the cabinet carcass. However, Wood Screws are tapered, have an aggressive thread and rip into the carcass causing damage on installation.
Most companies, such as BLUMM® and IKEA®, have moved to a better-engineered solution using Euro/Cabinet Screws which we supply with our kit, making for a better mechanical bond between the carcass, bracket and hinge.
The Gidgit™ brackets are designed for ease of installation using a simple but proven, modern engineering technique.

How to Video
Please note… we only use the Yellow brackets seen in the video for illustration purposes!
To make this video, we used a standard kitchen cabinet from B&Q.
The OLD Metal Plate
1. Not all cabinets are pre-drilled in the same location so with the metal plate you are forced to use their hole centres.
2. Again, Not all cabinets are pre-drilled in the same location and with the metal plate, you have no flexibility of where to place new screws.
3. Wood screws are not the correct solution for Chip/Particle Board and will just further damage the carcass.
The NEW Gidgit™ Bracket
1. Our brackets allow you to move and place the bracket based on the original location of the hinge.
2. Our NEW Design bracket allows you to adjust the distance between even if the hinge has not been centred, by simply splitting the bracket in two.
3. We supply modern Euro/Cabinet Screws as used by most modern manufacturers including IKEA® for a proper mechanical fit.
