Kitchen Drawer Rail Fix


Hi DIY,

I put too much in a kitchen drawer and the plastic part that holds the rail broke. Please tell me the name of the part I need to get and how to go about attaching it (looks like a simple staple gun job, no?).

Thanks

That may be a tough item to find because it was probably made to fit only that specific glide.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Should I just get a new glide?

HERE'S A POSSIBILITY. http://www.rvpartsnow.com/kwikee-6-t...mper-906466002

Or just Google Drawer Glide Holders or Drawer Glide Sockets.

Local RV suppliers might carry them, as things like that are ALWAYS breaking on RV's.

Thanks again, those look like what I broke. Now the only challenge will be finding one that fits among the millions available

A mobile home supply may also have them.
They use super cheap drawer guides like that.

Look real close and see if you can see any info on the guides. A brand name would be a huge help.
Lowes and Home Depot both carry a few differant brand of guides. Bring both piece with you when you go to match them up.

It's called a "socket" and any (ANY!) decent hardware will have one close to yours.

If you look on the bracket you already have for the rail there are screw holes at the top and the bottom. You could just get yourself some epoxy and a small screw.

Mix your epoxy, put it on the piece that has broken off and between it and the piece still attached. Screw them both on with a small (1/4") screw. Those brackets were not made to be stapled on - that's why they have screw holes and no "staple" holes....

Local HomeDepot has a "generic" socket to fix this, they should have the metal type like I have bought. It will have a socket for the rail to fit into, instead of being specific for this type rail. This will give you a little wobble when assembled and a little noise. I stopped the noise by putting a bit of silicone in the socket to dampen the vibration. The staples are for fast assembly, not quality assembly for sure. On the new one use small wood screws, they will last longer.

I doubt if that plastic will glue worth nuts. Getting the right configuration may be a trick but that type of slide sells for about $5/pair although matching sockets will be extra. Try Home Depot, if they haven't got a matching socket, just pick up a new set of slides with sockets to match.
