They Work as Advertised!
We are very pleased with these slides, which we used to replace all the old slides in our kitchen. They are terrific! The soft close feature works great, even on heavily loaded drawers. The full extension allows complete access to all of the drawer contents. The only caution is when retrofitting them into a face frame cabinet, where you can't easily build out the sides with blocking and have to use the rear mount brackets. To work correctly, the slides must be parallel, both vertically and horizontally, and it's harder to do without blocking. We installed a couple of drawers with our very reliable, commercially-purchased slide installation jig, but found that the soft close feature wasn't working right. It just wasn’t possible to use the jig by itself to position the slides correctly. To compensate, we used horizontal spacers beside and vertical spacers underneath the slides at the rear of the cabinet. Combining spacers with the installation jig ensured the slides were parallel to each other and had the correct face frame clearance. With that, the installed drawers/slides then worked great.
