A simple tip for easier drilling

A magnetic nut setter tip attaches the screw to your drill magnetically, so you don’t have to hold it while you drill. It’s like having a second pair of hands to hold the screw in place.

Step by Step Instructions

1 Centre your basket at the base
2 Pre-drill the screw holes
3 Screw down the basket
  • Step 1. Centre 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.
  • Step 2. Pre-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. 

  • Step 3. Screw down the basket

    Now slide out the runners from under the basket and screw them down to the cabinet. Mark and pre-drill the outside holes of the runners and screw them down. Finally, slide the basket in and you are done.
