Cabinet Levelers Review
This installer is adjusting the "front" levelers. However, in order to reach the "rear" levelers you must crawl under the cabinets. Very slow and somewhat frustrating. 

We found this way of leveling very slow, but we did manage to get them fairly level, although this system is not as precise as some others.

oh and by the way... be careful. If you try to move this cabinet, you must pick it up and move it, because those legs will shear off with any lateral movement. 



This installer is adjusting the "REAR" levelers. It's a snap using the EZ-Level System. One man can laser level an entire kitchen in only a few minutes because all four levelers are accessible through two small access holes (just behind the toe-kick). Once the toe-kicks are put into place the levelers and access holes are completely hidden.

The levelers are incredibly precise and  super fast. While leveling cabinets using the other systems were a bit frustrating at times... the EZ-Level system is actually addictive. I actually leveled, unleveled and releveled a whole row of cabinets just so I could do it again! (now THATS something you don't hear of everyday)!

One more thing: BONUS. When it comes to cabinet installation and leveling there are many factors which take up the installers time. Having to "move" a cabinet or two during installation is something that happens all too frequently. 

One very cool feature with the EZ-Level system is that you can actually MOVE the cabinets around the room AFTER their leveled up... slide it around the room if you like and when you set them back into place they are still PERFECTLY LEVEL !   IMPOSSIBLE with any other system!

Choices #2, #3, #6 and #5 all work in a similar fashion. Access holes must be drilled inside the cabinets and an adjusting tool is used to adjust the levelers. 

Here are the drawbacks for any leveler in this class:
1. If given the choice, few people would want holes in their new cabinets and those little plastic "plugs" look cheezy and tend to pop out as things are moved around inside the cabinets.

2. (as in #2,3 and 6) Getting the Allen wrench and/or the screwdriver through the hole and onto the levelers (seems easy) but is very tedious. Most of your time is spent trying to keep the wrench/driver on the unit. (having said that... our #3 pic is a bit easier than our #2 pick in this instance). 


*** #5 does takes care of this problem with a much smarter design.


3. These levelers require two men One man adjusting... while the other is looking at the level line. That not only "doubles" the man hours (automatically)... but the whole process slows down because precision cabinet leveling is all about micro-adjustments which can be difficult to convey and execute.

Some may wonder why we even included shims in our test. We felt it necessary because so many people think that shimming cabinets is ok. It's NOT.

1). Shimming is the most madning of ALL methods. Its extreemly slow!

2). Worse, shims are very unstable. Over time they will actually move out of place due to expansion and contraction because they are not attached in any way whatsoever.
