I just went to mount some cabinet doors using self-closing hinges.
No matter how tightly I screw the wing down—I have about a 1/8” gap between the back of the lip and the front of the frame where they overlap. I tried several thinking this might be a defect—but apparently they are designed this way on purpose?????
I’m guessing that is to allow for a cushion on the opposite edge of the door.
I can think of a few ways to get around this and let the door close more tightly all the way around.
Has anyone else encountered this?
