Hinges will be numbered 1 to 4 from bottom to the top of the door. There is also a middle hinge that has no number stamped on it, referred to as an ‘Intermediate’ hinge. If your hinge is stamped “3” this will replace the hinge used to join the 3rd panel and the 4th panel. Please note that the hinges are not interchangeable with one another, i.e. Hinge #1 will not suit #3 hinges.
