Drawer slides for kitchen cabinets are designed to be durable and strong enough to support the weight of the contents of the drawer. However, drawer slides can wear out over time or broken and you need to replace drawer slides. Today, we'll be looking at the signs that might be telling you that your cabinets could do with an overhaul.
No longer slides smoothly: The drawer slides will have specific weight restrictions. If you surpass the weight rating on a frequently used drawer, it will become more and more dangerous each time you pull it out. The bottom of the drawer can also become loose if it is overloaded. Older hardware might have small wheels, flimsy construction, worn out bearings or rollers. Not only can you replace drawer slides to support more weight, but you can also upgrade for utility.
Slides got stuck: Slides can be rubbed against the frame, or is just simply stuck. It's possible your drawer is not sliding because the screws are loose. Check if any of the mounting screws on the tracks on both the drawer and the cabinet need to be tightened with a screwdriver. Inspect the tracks for any areas where they are bent out of shape or entangled with something that the user does not know. Or when you deliberately pull the cabinet rails lead to break the brake, the drawer is pulled out all the way or pop out of the grooves it slides in, you should replace the new one.
Slides got rusted: Rails used in the moist environment of the kitchen for a long time will lead to rust, affecting the aesthetics and opening and closing of the drawers, or damaging the cabinet boards, Please upgrade the new rails to prevent damage.
