Kingston 33sk the doors that raise and lowers and are kept in place withshocks (door closers), because of the motion of shocks, the movement and push and pull will loosen the small screw that attaches the shock to the cabinet frame causing thescrew to strip. I am replacing the scew with a wood insert nut and a machine screw, this modifcation should give us a much better life on the wood frame.
Great idea! I had a similar problem with one of our doors the open like that, but I used the old glue and toothpick method and its still holding but if it fails again then your method will the perferred choice.

I think most all the doors that open up and use the shocks fasten with a wood screw will at some point strip out the wood because of the shock movement. I would also like to put a shock with a 1" longer stroke on the doors, this would make the door open wider.
Would you know where you could get a replacement with an 1" longer stroke?
