Then, a 35mm reaming cup installation hold should be drilled with a pistol drill or woodworking hole opener. In general, the drilling depth is 12mm.


(3) Fix the hinge cup (the hinge product). Glass hinges should be inserted into the hinge cup hole on the door plate, and fix the hinge cup with self-tapping screws.


(4) Fix the base. After the hinge is inserted into the cup hole of the door panel, open the hinge, insert and align the side panels. And then fix the base with self-tapping screws.

In serious cases, it will fall off. In general, the reason for this may due to a hinge with small specification, or the matching screws are not used.


(3) Pay attention to the gap distance. The gap between the hinge and the door panel must be well controlled. Otherwise, it will ugly. In general, the gap of the door panel is 3-5mm, and expansion joints should be reserved.

Also, it is necessary to check whether the hinge and its connecting screws and fasteners are matched. The connection method of the glass hinge should match the material of the frame and fan. For example, the hinge used for the steel frame wooden door should be welded on the side connected with the steel frame, and the side connected with the wooden door fan should be fixed by wood screws.
