So how, on a practical level, do you find out if you need to buy left-handed or right-handed hinges? Listen up. Go to the door, window or lid and grab the handle. Open the door (or window, or lid). If you grabbed the handle with your left hand and the door opened, either towards you or away from you, then you are dealing with a left-handed hinge. Note this down carefully; left-handed hinge.
Take the squeaky door off its hinges. If you haven"t done this before, it is relatively easy. For smaller cabinet doors, you can just remove the hinge with a screwdriver, for larger, pin hinges, you will need a flat-head screwdriver to pop the pin out to get the door to come off. If it"s sticking, you can lightly tap the back of the screwdriver with a hammer to loosen the pin. Once you have gotten the door down, you will need to use a screwdriver to remove the hinge pieces. Put at least one of the hinges in your pocket to take on your shopping expedition.
Whether you are re-doing your kitchen and need all new hinges or just replacing the hinges on one cabinet you should take a moment to admire the strength they give you. Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the task they are assigned. So next time you open a door or shut a cabinet think how heavy that door would be without hinges to essential move it open or closed for you. Once you do this you;ll never take hinges for granted again.
