How to Size Your Hinge System
- Make sure your current hinge matches the dimensions above. If you have a wood cabinet it is possible to fill and redrill your existing screw holes if necessary. If you have metal cabinets, your current installation dimensions must match exactly.
- Measure your pivot point height using the upper pivot point. See the link below for instructions on how to measure this.
- Find your pivot point in the list below. The best choice will be the one where your pivot point falls in the middle of the pivot point ranges.

Replacing Medicine Cabinet Hinges
- When replacing hinges on a medicine cabinet it is necessary to replace all the hinges and mounting plates on any for that are you are working on. Mixing different brands of hinges can cause binding problems because they may have slightly different articulations.
- The hinge and mounting plate combination that you receive may look slightly different than what you see in the above image. To achieve all of the different pivot point heights we use three different hinge types and five different mounting plate heights.
