    I could just pull them off the wall and find out for sure... but that would make too much sense ;)

    On a standard wall cabinet adjuster one adjustment screw does vertical and one does horizontal.

    Question is what should clockwise on each on do? Vertical clockwise higher and horizontal clockwise towards the edge the adjuster is on?

    One screw will pull/tighten the cabinet against the wall (clockwise tightens), the other screw will raise/lower the cabinet (clockwise raises most likely).

    Best way to check is take the cabinet off the wall and check by turning the screws and seeing how the hanger moves.

    As the doc says, one of them will tighten it back to the wall. The other one is only for vertical adjustment. Horizontal adjustment is made by loosening the cabinet slightly and physically moving it sideways. ;)

    Was getting fussy over them being about 0.2mm out of whack at the top but all sorted now :p

    Thanks for the replies
