Let’s look at how to measure offset for a Facemount latch. Offset of cooler/freezer door hardware is important because your door will no open or shut properly. You cannot put a cooler hinge that is flush (meaning it does not have an offset) on a door that has an offset of 1-1/2″. The freezer door wont open.
What is Offset?
It is the difference between the front surface of the wall and the front surface of the cooler door.
For FACEMOUNT hardware: The offset is equal to the distance between the front surface of the door and the front surface of the frame or the wall.
