How to adjust the front gap to 2.5 mm quickly and accurately

TIP-ON BLUMOTION Template for assembly with LEGRABOX and MOVENTO

A front gap of just 2.5 mm is sufficient to ensure optimal trigger behaviour for TIP-ON BLUMOTION. To help achieve this, Blum has provided a front gap template for MOVENTO and LEGRABOX 65.5631, which enables the adjustment to be made quickly and easily on the TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit, directly on site.

The front gap can be adjusted via the TIP-ON BLUMOTION unit depth adjustment (seen on the orange wheel in the picture below).
Using the template 65.5631:

  • Check on the cabinet profile which product is being assembled (MOVENTO or LEGRABOX).
  • The product name (MOVENTO or LEGRABOX) must face outwards on the template.
  • Slide the front gap template onto the edge of the cabinet profile as shown in the picture below.


How to use the TIP-ON BLUMOTION template with LEGRABOX

  • Use the (orange) adjustment wheel to adjust the cabinet profile forwards as far as possible until it touches the template.
  • With high fronts, it is also important to ensure a continuous front gap of 2.5 mm. This means that the front gap must also measure 2.5 mm on the upper end of the front, in order to achieve optimal triggering of the TIP-ON BLUMOTION.

The graphic below shows the trigger range with a continuous front gap of 2.5 mm with and without synchronisation.

    Adjustment of a 563H 21″ soft closing Blum slide and standard locking device, is the subject.
    How or can the slide be adjusted to tilt forward or back so the drawer front is in alignment with the face frame? It appears the only adjustment would be moving the back of the slide up or down for this adjustment.
    Your thoughts?

      Dear Lynn,

      indeed, the tilt adjustment at the back of the drawer is the way you’d align the front.
      The following video shows you where to find the tilt adjustment at the runner back:

      Hope this helps you, otherwise please let us know.

      Kind regards
