Hi - I'd like to put some soft-close kitchen drawer sliders in my existing
drawers - you know, the ones that when you go to slam them, they glide in at
the last moment, thus preventing damage.
Does anyone know where to get them from and if they are hard to install?
Also, an indictaion on what it might cost for about 6 standard drawers would
be very helpful!
Thanks for any info - cheers!
As I said, I have used them myself.
If you look as the others on:-
you will see that they use the same little wheel to assist closing and they
refer to self-close
Actually - the above is what I went for in the end - I was getting all het
up thinking about the number of holes I'd had to drill and the amount of
time it'd take to install them - then when I got home - I noticed there was
already pre-drilled holes in my kitchen (and I believe this is a universal
feature of kitchens) - I literally stuck them in the holes (didn't even need
to tighten the screws and within seconds they were fitted!). Great stuff.
: ) Although its a bit of a shame they don't come in white to match my
kitchen and I wonder if there are cheaper models somewhere else? I need
about 26 of them, so I reckon ~£45 is a bit much for a few hinges!
Only downside is that although all the cupboards are perfect, the two top
drawers of my kitchen can't be fitted with these as the drawer is too wide
for the dampener unit to fit in.
Also on most of my kitchen drawers, the sliding rail slightly obscures the
bottom hole, preventing them from being fitted : (
