Kitchen cabinet shelves are very convenient fro storing kitchen accessories. Shelves are handy in a way that you can keep things which are not used regularly in the cabinets for future needs and keep your kitchen look clean. Without shelves your kitchen look like a mess with things all around on countertops, racks, tables etc. Shelves need regular maintenance. They sustain damage over time and need to be repaired or replaced. There are usually two types of shelves used; adjustable shelves and permanent shelves. Each has a different way of installation.
– Reciprocating saw
– Locking pliers
– Flush cutting pliers
– Flat pry bar
Steps to Remove Shelf from Kitchen Cabinet
For Adjustable Shelves
1. Clear the area around the shelf which you want to remove. If shelf contains any items or accessories remove them.
2. Hoist the shelf up and spin the shelf diagonally. Hoist one side higher than the other; this will help it to clear the cabinet opening. To release the cabinet shelf you need to press the clip holding the pins and shelf in place. Usually, you can simply press the plastic or metal flap at the top of the pin to release the shelf.
3. Take the shelf away from the position carefully. Don’t drag or bump the shelf along the cabinet opening. Dragging or bumping may cause damage to surface.
