Frameless Cabinet Connectors
Fastener suggestions for connecting adjoining cabinets during installation. June 15, 2009
What type of fastener do you prefer to use for connecting face frame cabinets together - not for building the cabinets, but for attaching adjacent cabinets during install? The cabinets in question are prefinished maple interiors, so preferably nothing white.
From contributor D:
Gravitron X85 fasteners. They are completely invisible and the strongest fastener available.
From contributor A:
You say frameless in your title, then ask about face frame. I am going to assume you mean frameless. I use 1 1/4" screws and put a Fastcap over the screw.
From the original questioner:
Yes I meant frameless. Almost everything else I do is face frame, so I guess it just flows off the fingers.
