Q: what is the most common mistake people make in measuring for pull out shelves
A: We find the largest mistake made by customers is in ordering the correct clear opening as some customers think for example that if the opening is 15" wide that they can order 16" clear opening to get maximum benefit. This does not work as the drawer slide has to come through the clear opening. Please do not attempt to cheat the system. If you have any questions we have a toll free number 866-374.3583 or a contact page to get your questions answered.
Q: My slide out shelves were ordered with base mount brackets. There is only one screw holding the bracket to the drawer slide but the bracket has 2 holes, is this going to last and work properly
A. Yes, the bracket only needs to be attached with one screw to work properly. You will typically find this on full extension and soft close ball bearing slides.
Q: My bracket seem to be bent on my full extension slide, can I bend it back?
A. Yes, if the bracket itself is bent put in vise and bend back. Sometimes on full extension slide it is the mounting tab on the slide that has been pushed out making the bracket appear bent. On all drawers unwrap drawers prior to assuming the bracket is bent it may be that the bracket was wrapped in a way that makes it look bent
Q:I have a 21 3/8 " frame less cabinet opening and want to use base mount to the existing shelves , what size of pull out should I order?
A:Typically we would recommend side mounting for face less cabinets and would also recommend for a 21 3/8" clear opening that is what you would want to order.
But since you are adding base mount brackets we recommend a reduction of 1/4" on either side to account for the brackets and screws.
So if you have a clear opening of 21 3/8" minus total of 1/2" then you would want to order your slide out shelf to fit a 20 7/8" clear opening.
Again, we recommend side mounting on face less cabinets and also to measure front and back of cabinet wall to wall for squareness of the cabinet
