    Hi there guys, bit of a problem.

    Does anyone know if theres a manual on installing a Howdens kitchen? Im not really a kitchen fitter by trade and bought the kitchen after opening an account there as there kitchens looked great.

    First problem do you screw the legs into the cabinets as I cant seem to find the screws to do so in the cabinet fixing pack?

    Any help would be great as I have started with good intentions and 5 mins im realising im useless!

    Thanks

    if there are holes in the legs then screw them in,there should be screws supplied within the packs supplied.
    also within should be basic instructions on the positioning and joining of cabinets etc.
    good luck,but if your having trouble already are you sure you want to take this job on?
    it does get quite a bit harder as you go on.

    With the Kitchen you will have packets containing screws , Shelf supports, Screwcap covers etc

    you will find the screws you need in there 15 - 16 mm long any longer and you risk coming through the bottom of the unit
    If you get really stuck I live near Ashby LOL

    When you put the parts that fit into the holes in the bottom of the base units, you tap the central part into the fitting. This tightens up the base part of the legs on to the unit. You then put the adjustable legs in place and adjust to height. If you do it properly, there's hardly any need for screws to hold the legs to the base units. ;) ;)
