——Introduction to cabinet hinges
Hinges, commonly known as hinges, are the main components connecting the cabinet body and the door panel. The common opening angle of the cabinet is 90 degrees, and it is a right angle after opening.

The so-called multi-point positioning means that the door panel can stay at any angle when it is opened, it will not be laborious to open, and it will not be closed suddenly, thus ensuring the safety of use. This is especially important for the lift-up wall cabinet door. The quality of the positioning is related to the toughness of the reed used in the hardware.
