So if you want to a smooth and noiseless experience when opening your drawers you better start embracing cabinet glides.

  • They open up to approximately 4” of the drawer’s length allowing you fit up to the maximum size of files.
  • They are easy to fix because they come with self-drilling screws.

How it works
The mechanics behind the epoxy coated glides are quite interesting not to tell. Knowing how it works makes the task of fixing them yourself easier as well. 
First the gliding groove is fixed on both edges of the drawer. This is quite straight forward because the groove fits easily to the measurements of the drawer and the self-drilling screws make it even easier.
The next step is to fix the rolling wheel. Depending on your drawer type you have the choice of using a single captive glide or a dual captive slide. This entails fixing a wheel on either sides for the single captive glide or on both sides of the drawer for both sides for the dual captive slides. Most users however feel more at ease with the single captive slides because it the other side is free to allow readjustment when both ends are not parallel.
The final step in the Epoxy Coated Glides are to fix the drawer in and slowly pushing it in slowly till the end to ensure the drawer is perfectly in place.
