Euro hinge, Arrruggggg.

Well, it happened. I was prepping for my first trip and loaded a case of water in the closet and bumped the euro hinge. "Click". Yep, it let go. Now it could have been worse because the door remained in the right spot from the top hinge.
Is there an easy way to reattach? Like press the tab and drop it back on? Or do I have to take screws out and start over?

I know one certainty. I'm visiting my local boat supply and purchase a half dozen of these to guard the release tab.

If I'm understanding you correctly you released the hinge from the base plate. It should be a simple matter of pushing the front part of the hinge (closest to the door) onto the base plate and snapping the back part of the hinge (the part furthest away from the door) onto the base plate. You should not have to touch any of the screws. Hope this helps.

Yes, it does. Thanks.
I've also watched some YouTube videos, although they are mostly on installation.

I wish they had one more screw to lock everything down when adjusted properly. I know some folks put a screw behind the release tab to prevent accidental unlatching, but I like my strap idea.
