How to Install Kitchen Cabinet Hangers
Cabinets typically are screwed to wall studs for installation.
However, hangers sometimes are used to speed things up. When hangers are used, the cabinets go up quick, because hangers have already been installed on the wall and cabinet.
All you need to do is line up coordinating hangers on the cabinet and wall, and lock them together to support the cabinet.
There are different configurations of cabinet hangers. They all do the same thing even though they might look different. Hangers come in pairs: One side screws to the cabinet,
and one side screws to the wall. It just a matter of joining the two parts together to hang the cabinet. There are a few different types: rail, concealed and homemade. They all work
equally well, and support just as much weight as cabinets that are permanently screwed to the wall.
Today we are going to talk about the concealed cabinet hanger one.
One option for installing cabinets includes concealed hangers. This type of hanger is installed inside the cabinet on both sides. It also has two parts. Separate the parts and choose
the part that looks like a small box with hooks emerging out the back. If your cabinet has a back on it, it is necessary to cut a small slot through the back to accommodate the hook assembly.
Cut a 3/4-by-4-inch slot through the back, 4 inches below the top of the cabinet on the inside. Do both sides. Screw the box assembly to the sides of the cabinet so the hooks extend out the
back of the cabinet. Measure and mark the hook locations on the wall where the cabinet is to be installed. Screw one flat steel plate with a convex lip on each mark. The convex lip receives
the hooks. Pick up the cabinet with the help of an assistant, line up the hooks with the lips, and lower the cabinet until the two components lock together.
