Ever try to reach deep into your cabinets to clean inside them? Or maybe you need to gain access to the plumbing fixtures beneath the kitchen sink? It can be daunting, right? The cabinet doors always seem to get in the way.

But don’t sweat it. Removing your cabinet doors is really as easy as one-two-three, after you let Alure Home Improvements‘ Chief Operations Officer Doug Cornwell share his knowledge in this helpful edition of “The Alure 60-Second Fix: How To Remove Your Cabinet Doors.”

And once the cabinet doors are removed, you can do what you need to do so much easier without them in the way. You’ll be surprised how easy their removal is. Here, Doug shows us the ins-and-outs of cabinet doors in a simple demonstration that will teach you how to unclip the back of each door hinge so you can take the cabinet doors off without making a big production out of it.

And, just as important, he shows us how to put those cabinet doors back on.

“You ever have that age-old problem?” says Doug with a grin. “I know I’ve had it. You try to open up the doors and get into your cabinets to do some work in there, but the doors really limit your space. You try to move around in there and you’re hitting the doors with your elbows and you’re afraid you’re going to snap the doors off the cabinet.”

But you know what? He says that’s exactly what you need to do. You reach into the cabinet. There are clips at the back of each hinge. Grab them one at a time, starting with the top one, and pull the clip forward with your fingers until the clip releases. Do the same thing to the other cabinet door.

Off they go.

“Now you have full access into the cabinet to do whatever you need to do!” says Doug.

And when you’re done with your task at hand—whether it’s plumbing or cleaning—putting the cabinet doors back on is just as simple.

Hold the cabinet door in one hand as you line up the clips over the hinge bracket with the other. Start with the top hinge first. Line up the clip and push it back on until you hear it snap shut. Repeat the process with the bottom hinge. Then put the other cabinet door back on the same way.

“And we’re good to go!” says Doug with a satisfied smile.

Don’t you agree? Removing your kitchen cabinet doors is a snap!
