How to Install Drawer Slide Rail:

Step 2: Understand the different parts of the drawer slide rail. The three-section drawer slides consist of an outer rail, middle rail, and inner rail. Take note that the middle and outer rails are not removable, but the inner rail can be detached.

Step 3: Begin by removing the inner rail from the main body of the drawer slide rail. This can be done by locating the spring buckle at the back of the slide rail and disassembling it.

Step 4: Start the installation by attaching the outer and middle rail parts of the split slideway to both sides of the drawer box. If it is pre-finished furniture, there may already be pre-drilled holes for easy installation. However, if you are installing in custom-made furniture, you will need to drill the holes yourself.

Step 5: It is recommended to assemble the drawer as a whole before installing the slide rail. The track will have two sets of holes for adjusting the up-down and front-back distance of the drawer. Ensure that both the left and right slide rails are at the same horizontal position and aligned properly.

Step 6: Install the inner rail by fixing it to the measured position on the side panel of the drawer. Use screws to secure it in place.

Step 7: Tighten the screws in the corresponding holes on both sides, making sure that the inner rail is fixed to the correct length of the drawer cabinet.

Step 8: Repeat the same process on the other side, ensuring that the inner rails on both sides are horizontal and parallel to each other.

Step 9: Pay attention to the alignment of the middle and outer rails during the previous steps, as this can affect the smooth movement of the drawer. If there are any issues with the casing not being able to move forward, check the position of the outer rail or adjust the inner rail to match the position of the outer rail.

Step 10: After the installation is complete, test the drawer by pulling it in and out. If there are any difficulties or problems, make further adjustments.

How to Install Three-Section Drawer Slide Rail:

In addition to the installation instructions above, here are additional steps for installing a three-section drawer slide rail:

Step 1: Begin by installing the sub-rail in the center on the side of the drawer.

Step 2: Measure the center line from the drawer surface to the sub-rail.

Step 3: Add 3 mm to the center line measurement (or adjust according to the desired gap) to determine the pre-installation line of the main rail. Mark this line on the side panel of the drawer.

Step 4: Install the female track, ensuring it is positioned slightly backward to avoid interference with the top surface. Insert the female track into the drawer.

Step 5: Check the gap and parallelism of the drawer to ensure it is aligned correctly.
