I have just installed laminate flooring in my kitchen/diner.
I had to unscrew the kitchen base unit legs which the kicker board where clipped to beforehand.
Now with the reduce height between laminate floor & underneath of base units, the legs won't locate back into the the black plastic leg socket support which clips underneath the units, so i cannot reclip the kicker boards/plinths back to them.
Whats the best way to support/refit the kicker boards, is there some brackets i can buy that fit between the base unit & floor (like the legs before)?

By the way, I have screwed the legs back up under the base units but just not in the plastic socket things, the units are screwed to the wall, so very stable.

whitehaven - if the legs are the common black tubular plastic type (adjustable screw-in feet at one end, plain tube which goes into the leg socket support at top-end) why not just saw off a bit of the tubular leg to fit? Fully screw-in the adjustable foot, slip the tubular leg into the support, screw-out the adjustable foot to fit. You may also have to trim the kick-plates (plinth).
