Begin by attaching the slides to the drawer box inside the cabinet first. Align the slides and use the measurements from the previous slides to be sure they are level. Screw the glides in. Then, mount the slides to the drawer, position the slides so that they are centered on their corresponding line and flush with the face of the drawer box. Remember, don't tighten any screws until you've checked the alignment.
