Which side of this cabinet/gate hinge should go on the cabinet door? I believe the long-side.

Further, should the hinge pin be located right over the space where the sides meet the cabinet door? I designed in a 1/8th inch gap around the door to prevent rubbing.

Sorry if these are basic questions, I've only got one shot at this.

The long side of the hinge needs to be fixed to your cabinet door, align the hinge pin flush with the end of the door like the picture below

Make sure hinge faces the side you want the door to open to.
