Step by Step Instructions

1 Install the runners on the cabinet
2 Install the drawer guides
  • Step 1. Install the runners on the cabinet

    Fully extend the drawer runner, release the plastic catch and remove the draw guide. Now close the runner and hold it over the pre-drilled holes inside the cabinet. The front edge of the runner should sit slightly back from the front of the cabinet. Screw the runner into place. Now repeat the process with a second runner on the other side of the cabinet. Then slide both runners in and out to make sure they run freely. 
  • Step 2. Install the drawer guides

    Line up the drawer guide with the bottom and front edges of the drawer. Screw the drawer guide into place. Then do the same on the opposite side of the drawer. To finish, slide the drawer guides into the drawer runners. Gently push the drawer past the plastic catch in the runners. To finish, slide the drawer in and out to test that it works properly.
