What is a Hinge Cup?
A hinge cup, also known as a mounting plate, is a component of a cabinet hinge system that is installed on the cabinet side of the hinge. The hinge cup is typically made of metal and has holes or slots for attaching the hinge arm to the cabinet. The cup is usually concealed within a drilled hole in the cabinet door, providing a clean and seamless appearance when the door is closed. The hinge cup is adjustable and allows for fine-tuning of the door position and alignment. There are different types and sizes of hinge cups available to accommodate various cabinet and door configurations.
