How to install epoxy-coated roller drawer slides

Why choose these?

Why choose these?

  • Typically less than $10 per pair, and available in most home centers.
  • Because the drawer-mount members wrap around the drawer side's face and bottom edge, they're nearly impossible to install incorrectly.
  • More forgiving than other slides if the mating slides don't align precisely, because the slide track has wiggle room for the plastic wheels to move side-to-side about 1/16".
  • With no lubricant needed, they're ideal for dusty applications, such as shop cabinets.

For ease of installation, we attached the slide to the back of the cabinet with a standard mounting bracket. (These sell for about $2 a pair.) Start by separating the drawer slide into its two parts: the cabinet-mount member and the drawer-mount member.
