Soft close hinges going to damage my cabs?
Thought you guys might be able to help with this.
I got soft close hinges with me cabs, which are great I guess... but what I noticed is the slow close spring mechanism also has the opposite effect ... when I try to open the cabs slightly; the spring mechanism pushes the door outwards to full open.
I have an "L" shaped kitchen so the corner has cabinets 90 degrees to each other. When I open the cabs, the doors want to full open and knock the "pulls" into the other cabinet face. Also hits on the cabinets adjacent to the range hood.
For right now I'm just trying to be slow / super ginger with it; but obviously long term this is a pain in the you know what. I would have been better off with just normal hinges?
I wonder if there is a way to adjust these so they dont spring outward as much? Should I replace them? Maybe I'm paranoid?
Any input would be appreciated!
