DIY Step Image - How to install a base-mount slide-out basket . Blob storage upload.

Overview

Slide-out baskets give you easy access to items in your cupboards while also creating extra storage. This step-by-step guide will teach you how to centre the basket, pre-drill the holes and screw it in. Remember to read the instructions that come with the kit before you start.

Steps

1Centre your basket at the base

Place the basket inside the cabinet. Centre it on the base by using your tape measure to get equal space on both sides. Make sure you leave enough space for the door.

2Pre-drill the screw holes

Now take your pencil to mark the screw points inside the base of your cabinet. Use the inner holes of the basket runners as your guide. Then remove the basket and pre-drill the screw holes in the cabinet.
