Hi. I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant
Supply. In today’s episode, I’m going to show you how to reverse the swing
on your door hinge for your equipment. Do you ever experience that the layout of
your kitchen hinders the accessibility of your equipment? For instance, if your fryer was up against
a wall, it might be kind of difficult to open this
door all the way. Keep in mind, most equipment doors are made
to reverse the swing on it’s hinge. Here, I’ll show you on this Fry Master fryer. May not be the most esthetically pleasing
thing as this logo is going to be upside down, but hey, it’s going to be functional and a little bit
more operable for you in your layout. First, we’re going to take off the handle
to the door. Pretty easy … two phillips head screws. Next we’re actually going to take the door
off of the hinge itself. If you look down at the bottom, you’ll see
a spring loaded set pin. From there, we just push it in, lift it up, and we can get it to slide out. Next, you’re going to want to unscrew the
two screws on the bottom of this hinge plate. Lefty loosy. Be sure you re-attach the hinge plate. Next we’ve just got to remove the door magnet
itself. It’s on a plastic clip. Push on the bottom
upward. You should be able to slide it and push it
out. The mounting can be a little bit difficult
because of this push clip. Once you get those pushed in it should be
able to slide out quite easily. Now that we’ve got our hinge plate and our
door magnet switched on to the new correct side, it’s a matter of putting our door back into
it’s place with it’s spring loaded set pins. So you don’t crush your fingers, it might be kind of easy to slide this top
set pin in with a flat head screw driver. There you go. Reversed the swing. Like I said, not the most esthetically pleasing with our name plate at the bottom and upside
down, but functional none the less. Last but not least, reattaching our handle back to the opposing
side that we took it off from. There you have it. That’s how you reverse the swing on your hinge.
