Awesome product. Beats spraying one side at a time and having to deal with dry time.

These worked just as advertised. What a great way to help avoid accidental dropping of the door while turning it! I did need to secure the opposite corner while spraying to keep the door from rotating. I simply held it with my fingertip (gloves on, of course) and worked from the bottom up. On larger dorrs, I used two plugs.

After the door dries, these simply screw out, and are totally reusable. They'll be in my toolkit from now on.

Two coats of paint on a cabinet door can close in the hinge mortise for Euro hinges. These will help keep my hinge mortise clear of paint, and save time when I install the hinges.

Can you hang the cabinets for finishing from these plugs?
JT123 on Mar 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, I wouldn't use the plugs to hang the door from. They are designed to help keep the 35mm hole clean from paint drips. There is not enough tension to help support the weight of the door while hanging. I used them in conjunction with the Rockler Sure hook 360. On the 360, you might want to adjust the tension within the hold-down cup with an appropriate hex wrench. This will help eliminate the possibility of the door falling off while painting. Good luck

Can they be reused? Or do you need a new pair for every door?
Kelli M on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they can be reused. Made of plastic so they are easy to clean if you keep them from getting scuffed up.
