    Hi.
    I am in the middle of putting up my kitchen wall units but have hit a brick wall with something.

    The bracket on the back of the unit is adjustable. When the cupboards on the wall i can tweak the bracket to move it closer/further away from the wall. I need to adjust the height slightly and the bracket has an option to do this BUT!! i can't get to the bit that I need to turn.
    Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks

    thanks for the answers though.
    Is it possible to get longer wall plates? I just need to nudge things up slightly to get rid of the small gaps?

    Wall fixing plates allow for lots of adjustment how big are your gaps?
