(“Pie Cut” revolving Shelf for corner cabinets)
The most common problem is that the steel top pivot pin (in the top pivot) is much stronger than the hole at the end of the zinc/pot metal triangular arm coming off of the door bracket. The steel pin wins the battle. (See picture below).
I have developed a custom repair kit for this problem. I call it Stan’s Pie Cut FIX-IT-KIT. You do need to keep your old door bracket as you will be reusing most of it in your re-build.
The kit contains:
- A custom manufactured steel plate that conforms to the shape of the arm coming off of the door bracket
- Instructions, a paper template for the repair, and line art drawings showing component parts
Tools needed: A vise to hold the bracket while you repair it. A hack saw to cut off the old hole (after gluing or pasting down the paper template from the instructions), an electric drill or hand drill for drilling 3 new holes using the three holes already drilled thru the steel plate as drilling guides, pliers or wrench, a screwdriver, and some Loctite. All nuts and bolts are provided in the kit.
NOTE: this is a very simple fix. I have sold hundreds of these kits with very good results from happy customers.
