Quick Tip

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 Install the bracket
2 Mark and pre-drill the runner holes
3 Screw down the runners
4 Install the baskets
  • Step 1. Install the bracket

    Place the cabinet on its side and centre the bracket on the inside wall. Use your tape measure to make sure you have an equal space either side. Make sure you recess the bracket back 20mm. Once you have the bracket centred, take the measurements for your runners.
  • Step 2. Mark and pre-drill the runner holes

    Remove the bracket from the runners and leave them in the cabinet. Then mark and pre-drill the runner hole closest to the edge of the cabinet. Repeat this process for the other runner, making sure you space it out according to the measurements in your instructions.

  • Step 3. Screw down the runners

    Screw down the first hole and then mark and pre-drill and screw down the back hole. Use your tape measure to keep the runner straight. Use your spirit level to check that it’s straight. Then screw into the rest of your holes. Repeat this process for the other runner.

  • Step 4. Install the baskets

    Slide the bracket onto the runners. Turn the cabinet back upright and slide your baskets onto the bracket. Then check that the unit slides in and out properly and you’re done.
