Undermount Center Drawer Slide Adjustment

CEFreemanJanuary 12, 2012

Hi all!

Before I get into this, remember I'm learning by trial and lots of error, OK?

I've built a drawer cabinet.

I've built the drawer box.

I built the drawer box ...oh ... just a little too big.

I had to go with a center, undermount drawer slide.

I bought one at Lowe's, from Gate House.

Installation went fine and it's sliding in and out. and in and out. and in and out.

I have to adjust it a little, though, because the left side is out about 1/4" further than the right side. The thing is, I'm not certain which way to adjust the rail, and can't get to it to mark it while in place.

In your opinion or experience, should I adjust the position of the front screws, the back screws, and which direction? I tried contacting Gate House, but their number leads to someone else, and I can't find them online!

Thank you. I'm work out fussing with this. Pretty proud of myself, but I want it to work perfectly!


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I just loosened the screw on the back of the slide and I'm letting it set itself.

Not a professional solution, but it's working for me.
