How to separate drawer runners

Drawer runners are essential if you are making furniture that incorporates drawers. There are various types of drawer runners, but the ball-bearing ones offer smooth opening and closing and are easy to fit. The price of ball-bearing drawer runners varies depending on the style you choose, but they range from around R20 upwards.


Before you mount the drawer slides you need to separate them, so that one part can be mounted onto the side of your cabinet and the other onto your drawer. 

If you need to separate drawer runners for mounting you will find a small clip on the runners. Simply by bending the clip to one side you release the top slider section - the side that gets mounted to our trouser rack piece.

Now all you ladies can go home and try this out on your husbands. It will take them a while to figure it out - if at all !
