Installing Kitchen Sink Tip Outs

Happy Weekend Friends!  I’m so happy it’s finally here… today we’ve got a day full of football and then family game night.  I’ve got an oldie, but goodie to share with you guys.   Today I’m sharing with you guys how I added some organization storage to my kitchen by installing kitchen sink tip outs.

How to Install Kitchen Sink Tip Outs

Here’s what you need:

Front Tip Out Trays Kit ~ I got mine from Rockler

drill

pencil

level

How to Install Kitchen Sink Tip Outs

1st ~  You need to remove your false sink drawer fronts.  Mine were held on by staples, but yours might be  held on by screws.

2nd ~  Take the hinges and place them on the interiors of your opening, at the base and mark your screw openings with a pencil. (It will be flush with the edge of the cabinet) My hinges were marked with a “L” or “R” for your left and right side making the process easier.

3rd ~ Put in the screws.  I drilled pilot holes to make it easier.  Repeat on the other side.

4th ~ Here I’ll save you a little grief.  I followed the directions which gives this step as the last step, but I promise you… it’s easier to do it it now!  Use a level and mark on the front of your panels where you want to place your trays.  Drill a pilot hole and screw in the screws most of the way, but you want to leave enough space to be able to remove the trays for cleaning, etc. (They hook onto the screws)  Leave the trays off for now, so you have more room to work.

5th ~  Attaching the panel to the hinge.  This was the hardest part, mainly because of the lack of work space.  You can pull the hinge out to make it easier to attach the panel from the outside or climb under the sink with a flashlight to install.

6th ~  Once the hinge is attached to the panel front you can hang your trays on the screws.

Once you’re done kitchen sink tip out will be a great place to store your sponges, brushes and it even comes with a cute little ring holder if you like to remove your ring while doing dishes.

I always love adding things that make my life more organized!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

    Genius! This would be so helpful in my kitchen. I hate it when the sponge falls into the sink and gets buried under yucky dinner dishes. Makes me wanna toss the sponge, its so gross. Gonna peek under my sink and see how the false front is held on. Thanks!

    I have these on my cabinets and they really are great to have. Mine came with our house, so I didn’t have to install them, but this is a great tutorial. Thanks and have a good week!

    I had my husband install these a few months ago. Oh did he moan about having to do it, of course, he didn’t follow the instructions (typical man thing–don’t need the instructions.) Anyway, I thought I would love them, but I’ve found they aren’t as convenient as I thought they would be. I loved the idea of them, but in practice, they haven’t gotten much use–at least, not at our house.

    How are they working out for you?
