Thanks for the reply. The slides are installed within tolerance. A
perfectly fit, actualy.
Good idea to test the action of the slide on its own, not installed. I
did just that. Actually, I noticed before I even installed the slides
for the first time that they had this friction stop at the end. I
thought that once they were attached to a drawer and once the drawer
had some stuff in it, the excesive friction would feel just about
right. But No, still too much.
No, the slides are not self closing. I like the idea of self closing,
but the ones I looked at looked too much like kitchen drawer hardware.
Ok, you want the self closing, I was not sure you could get other than self
closing these days. I know what you are talking about now. That detent
keeps the drawer from reopening on its own if the cab is not on a level
The self closing ones do provide resistance but much less than the plain
slides. You also might want to consider the "soft close self closing
slides. You can give them a pretty hard shove to close and about 2" out a
small hydraulic piston dampens the force and pulls the drawer shut.
I prefer KV brand slides. 8417 series for self closing and 8450 for self
closing and soft close.
