Question how to attach false drawer front to 30" sink base cab

How do I attach the 2 false drawer fronts to a 30" sink base cabinet? No instructions in the door/panel boxes. (There was a triangular shaped bracket which I didn't use, is that it?)

Re: how to attach false drawer front to 30" sink base cab

Yep, you use the triangle piece and it's much easier if the sink isn't installed. If the sink is already in, you may be able to do two tall doors w /o the false front (swap out the doors and other parts for credit). You'll need to have access to the right holes for the hinges, however--some sinks interfere but most don't. Either way, another thing you can consider is doing under sink pullouts. There are many posts on how to do that. Have fun!

I installed the fakeys with my sink installed. It was such a pain. I had to buy an extra small screwdriver to get the job done. I didn't have enough leverage and the screw heads are probably stripped now.
