Do I need Press-on or Screw-on hinges?
Standard hinge installation screws work well in solid wood stock and plywood, but screws lose strength in medium density fiberboard (MDF) or particleboard. If your cabinet doors or cases are made from these materials, you may want to choose hinges that include barbed plastic inserts that fit in predrilled holes. Tightening the installation screw pushes each dowel against the wall of the hole for a firm grip.

|Note: The press-on type hinge was developed for the manufacturers as a way to automatically align hinges and place them on the cabinet door in the proper location by just "pressing" them into the holes. The dowels in that case are already mounted. If you are replacing this type of hinge, you can get either type of hinge and either use the new dowels (which are already attached to the hinge) or you can use the screw-on and just use the screws already in your doweled door.
Mounting plates are conveniently offered with the hinges:

- 0mm for 5/8" overlay (600.3553.65) for face frame cabinets

- 0mm for 3/4" overlay (600.0R22) for frameless cabinets
- 2mm for 1/2" overlay (600.0R24) for frameless cabinets
- Combine the 9mm crank hinge with the 0mm plate for 1/4" overlay
- Use 15mm crank hinge with the 0mm plate for an inset hinge
Hinges and mounting plates are sold each (one hinge and one mounting plate)
"Screw on" hinges and mounting plates shipped with or without screws. "Press in" hinges have dowels and screws pre-installed.
