I like the 2 pc wing plate 175H7100

why 2 piece? i use 1 piece, seems easier than a 2 piece

I like the 2 piece because it has the third hole for mounting. Plus you don’t have to loosen and re tighten the mounting screws over and over when adjusting.
I don’t like how the one piece just looks like a stamped out plate, although i’m sure it’s strong enough.

As far as ease, no different.

I like the plate AG posted, but I don’t like drilling my screws so close to the edge, (since most of my cabinets are of the european style) although the 6600 has the screws a little farther in. Plus for an inset door there just kinda weird. (and you have to knock the tits off)
