  • - pricker;
  • - self-tapping screws;
  • - furniture loops;
  • - pricker;
  • - edge mill;
  • - Bulgarian.


1. Define necessary quantity of furniture loops. The quantity of the established hinge mounting depends on width and the weight of door. If necessary installation of three and more loops is possible.

2. Mark the centers of loopy grooves. Depending on the door sizes the distance from groove cent to the top or lower face can make from 65 to 125 mm. The distance from the center of groove to side face of door makes, as a rule, 21-22 mm. At marking it is necessary to watch that installation sites of loops on have coincided with arrangement of crossing points, shelves or other internal elements.

3. Establish edge mill and, disciplining drill vertically, drill openings in the places planned earlier.
