- If you drilled in slightly the wrong spot (1/16" or so), it is possible to wiggle the drill bit around (or use a larger bit) to enlarge the hole. This will allow you to position the hardware in a slightly different spot when you bolt it down.
- If you drilled in a really wrong spot, redrill a hole. With expensive solid wood cabinetry, this is possible because the better wood allows for you to drill two holes close together. But if you're dealing with less expensive particleboard, the board may crumble if you try to drill holes near each other.
