Drawer Slide Standards?
« on: June 06, 2018, 12:37 PM »
Hi -
I tried Googling this, but must not be using the proper terms.

Are there standards for screw hole locations on drawer slides?  In my case a 28" slide.

Basically, I've ordered several sets for a Chaos wall I'm building and want to get the holes drilled before the slides arrive next week.  I will be using the LR-32 system to drill the holes.

TIA

Ross

The manufacturer (Grass, Mepla, etc.) will have all the screw locations in their online catalogs.I have been installing slides for years and rarely use more than 3 screws per slide. Install screws in vertical slots on the carcass side and horizontal slots on drawer side to begin for adjustability. When drawer fronts are on an all is good put in "lock" screws.

Which slides did you buy? The manufacturer usually publishes a drilling pattern.
