Step by Step Instructions

1 Pre-drill screw holes for the pull-out basket runners
2 Attach the runners for the pull-out baskets
3 Install the pull-out basket in the runners
  • Step 1. Pre-drill screw holes for the pull-out basket runners

    Make sure you have all the components ready to go. Then mark out and pre-drill two screw holes on each side panel of the cabinet as specified in the instructions. If your cabinet has hinges, make sure you choose a position where the runners won’t get blocked.
  • Step 2. Attach the runners for the pull-out baskets

    Line the runners up with the pre-drilled holes and fix them in place. Once you’ve driven the first four screws in, drill pilot holes and screw in another six on each side. For greater strength, space the screws evenly on both runners and mirror the positions on both sides.
  • Step 3. Install the pull-out basket in the runners

    Put the wire basket on the metal supports of the runners. Line the basket up with the supports, making sure it’s between the 2nd and 3rd wires at the front and back. To finish the job, place the basket clips over the metal supports and screw them into place with a Phillips head screwdriver.
