    Hi, the trims on the internal cupboards are all coming loose. It looks like they have shrunk slightly. Is it a case of glueing them back in place or buying new trim? It looks like it would be about 30 mm short if glued back in but I find it difficult to see how the plastic trim would shrink this much. Any tips or tricks on this would be appreciated.:Smile:
    Thanks

    Gordon

    if the trims were stretched while being fitted they tend to shrink in cold weather.. not uncommon.. seen it around windows and door frames as well.

    I would remove, soak in a bucket of hot water until pliable, dry off, then refit stretching to to the correct length, then fix in place using a strong contact adhesive..
