To install a C6 hinge, begin by aligning the hinge's positioning on the door and the frame. Mark the locations for the screw holes using a pencil or marker. Drill pilot holes for the screws to prevent splitting or damage. Next, attach one leaf of the hinge to the door and the other to the frame using suitable screws. Make sure the hinge is securely fastened and aligned correctly.
