This D.I.Y. Advice is part of a series How To Assemble and Install a Blind Corner Base

Step by Step Instructions

1 Mark out the screw points for the sliding track frame
2 Install the sliding track frame and front support rail
3 Install the basket frame in the sliding track frame
4 Install the front roller wheels, handles and hang the baskets
  • Step 1. Mark out the screw points for the sliding track frame

    Remove the panel from the front of your cabinet. Mark out the screw points for the sliding track frame as specified in the instructions. Then place the frame in position to make sure the marks are all correct. It is also a good idea to pre-drill pilot holes for your screws.
  • Step 2. Install the sliding track frame and front support rail

    Screw the sliding track frame into place. Then loosen the two screws on the front face of the frame and mount the front support rail into place on top of the screws. Once the rail is sitting in position, tighten the screws to lock it in place.
  • Step 3. Install the basket frame in the sliding track frame

    Move the sliding track frame closer to the side of the cabinet where the door will be. There are two possible mount points for the basket frame. Choose the one closest to the door-end of the cabinet. Place the basket frame in position and screw it into place using the hex screws provided.
  • Step 4. Install the front roller wheels, handles and hang the baskets

    Screw the front roller wheels into the bottom of both basket frame panels. Then screw the handles into place at the front of each basket panel. Now simply hang the baskets and slide the frame into the cabinet. Finish off by replacing the front panel you removed at the start, and you’re done.
