Can I use the CounterPlate on Cabinetry?

Although we would recommend the IslandBar for cabinet overhangs the CounterPlate can also be installed into cabinetry as long as you can frame the inside of the cabinetry with 2x4's. In instances like this our customers use the CounterPlate instead of the IslandBar because of issues like full overlay doors.
