If your drawer has a gap like this,
loosen the rear mounting brackets
and adjust the slides down until the
gap disappears.

Now mount to the drawer

1. Install the drawer-mount member on the drawer side, keeping it 1/32" back from the drawer front, shown in photo right. Repeat for the other side of the drawer.

2. Insert the drawer into the cabinet-mounted slides and test its fit. If the drawer binds, loosen the screw on the rear mounts and adjust the bracket side-to-side until the drawer slides smoothly.

3. Use a straightedge to check the drawer front's fit to the face frame, photo right. If you need to adjust the drawer up or down, first drive a screw in the center of the rear-brackets' vertical slot. Remove the screw from the horizontal slot, make the necessary adjustments up or down, and reattach it with a screw in the horizontal slot.

4. Once the drawer front aligns with the face frame and the drawer slides smoothly, drive the remaining screws to secure the slides in place.
(If you've built inset drawers, the drawer front will be the finished face. If you'll attach an overlay drawer front to the drawer box's front, do this after installing and aligning the drawer slides.)
