Installation

We promise that installation is incredibly easy and very intuitive – you simply fasten the damper, which has a base with two holes, to the top of your cabinet frame using the two screws that are included.

1. Items Needed










2. Positioning

First, find the best positioning WITHOUT fastening the screws

Start by holding the damper at Door Center, position A

  • Option 1: You can temporarily attach the damper to the top cabinet frame using
    masking tape or similar light adhesive
  • Option 2: You can place the damper on the bottom cabinet frame to test and measure the distance from the hinges (and then fasten to top frame at the same distance)

With the damper in place to test position A, let the cabinet door shut/close onto the damper

If position A in the center of the door works well when you shut the cabinet door, then you can move on to step 3 below and install/fasten the damper at this position.

If the cabinet door still slams at the door center position A, then move the damper away from the hinges, toward position C. Test again around this area to find the best spot.

If the cabinet door does not close fully at the door center position A, then move the damper closer to the hinges, toward position B. Test again around this area to find the best spot.

3. Fastening Screws

After finding the best position for your damper at which your cabinet doors close quietly,
you are now ready to finish your installation and fasten the screws

With one hand, hold the damper against the top cabinet frame at the best-working position, as determined in previous step 2












With the other hand, use a Phillips screwdriver to insert and fasten the included screws through the two holes on the damper

Note: The damper has a front-lip that will help with stability while you fasten the screws
