How to Fix Upward Opening Kitchen Cupboard

Postby snowy2018 » Thu Jul 26, 2018 10:55 pm


I have a kitchen cupboard that opens upwards.

Where the hinge attaches to the carcass, it has ripped out of it's screw holes.

Could anyone recommend please the best way to fix this ?

I have attached a picture.

Thanks in advance.

Drill larger holes where the screws used to be then glue dowels and screw into the dowels.

Alternatively depending on the clearance put in plasterboard plugs.
