How do you find drawer slides?
Hold the drawer level in front of the cabinet. Place the ends of the slides attached to the drawers into the tracks inside the cabinet. Pressing evenly on each side of the drawer, slide the drawer into place.
How do I get my kitchen drawer back on track?
Remove the drawer from its slot in the dresser to access the tracks. Lift up on the drawer as you pull it out, removing it at an angle. If necessary, jiggle the drawer slightly from side to side to help it break free of the tracks, such as if one side has fallen out but not the other.
What are the easiest drawer slides to install?
Mounting location: Side mounted drawer slides are the most popular and easiest to install. Center mount and undermount are also options.
How much clearance do you need for drawer slides?
Most side-mount slides require 1/2” to 17/32” of clearance on each side of a drawer. That means each drawer should be 1” to 1-1/16” smaller than the opening to fit properly. Under-mount slides attach to the bottoms of drawer boxes and can’t be seen when the drawers are open.
How do you remove drawers that don’t come out?

How do I keep my drawers from falling out when I move?
