1)Remove all items from inside cabinet where you wish to install the CabinetGuard.
2)Bend/twist the CabinetGuard (it will not break or crack) in a way that will allow it to lay flat on your cabinet floor.
Note: If you have pipes coming through the floor of your cabinet, carefully do the following:
a)Measure from the front of the cabinet back to the pipes.
b)If the pipes are on the left side, measure from the left side of the cabinet to the pipes. OR if the pipes are on the right side, measure from the right side to the pipes.
c)MARK those locations on the CabinetGuard.
d)Then cut slits for those pipes to slide through – BE SURE to make the cuts along the ‘landings’ (the higher, flat surfaces on which your cabinet items will sit) of the CabinetGuard from the BACK of the CabinetGuard to the MARKED locations on the CabinetGuard.
3)Put CabinetGuard in place and make sure it sits flat on your cabinet floor.
Note: If you cut slits for pipes, seal around the pipes to the CabinetGuard using high-quality silicone, ENSURING there are no gaps, and re-seal along the slits you cut to slide the pipes through.
Note: It is also recommended you apply silicone between the cabinet and the front-lip’s underside of the CabinetGuard as additional protection in the occurrence of a leak.
Note: If using the new 2-piece Guards, once in place, silicone where the two pieces fit together: A on top of B, silicone the lower areas. Upper landings don't need much, as water doesn't get that high before going out the front.
