How to install a G6 hinge?
To install a GC hinge, start by preparing the surfaces where the hinge will be attached, such as a door and a frame. Align the hinge on the desired location and mark the positions of the screw holes using a pencil. Then, use a drill to create pilot holes for the screws, ensuring they are the appropriate size for a secure fit. Place the hinge back on the marked spots and attach it using screws.
