Luckily most of them have the right screws.

We found a few loose hinges at inspection but i just thought they needed tightened. Nope, stripped.

The cabinets are nice. The installer sucked.

A little longer screw with a more agressive thread would have been better for sure. They probably stripped it when the hung the doors. There is a reason we always used a air drill with a clutch and then a cordless with a clutch when we needed to adjust them after installing the cabinets. If you need a hand let me know and I will fix it for you next week

I got the drills and will take a few screws out of some doors here at work and at home to see what the right size is. check on line and see what you can find out. I will drop by on the way to carters sat. I think we will screw in by hand though I would say the cat prolly stripped it out with a drill. but I will bring it.
