simple and elegant

So simple and almost invisible in use. My customers love them when I use them in cabinets.

These inserts both look and function great. However, they can be somewhat difficult to install - especially if you have "ham" hands, as I do. Having installed thousands of these inserts in both my own house, as well as cabinetry I've made for customers, I've developed my own installation tool that might be of help to others. I purchased a Robert Sorby Aluminum Micro Handle sold by Rockler, and others and inserted the shaft of a 1/4" drill bit, that I had shortened with bolt cutters wear face and eye protection during this process, into the Sorby handle. The shelf inserts fit onto the protruding 1/4" shaft and allow the installer to hammer the inserts into the shelf hole without nailing their fingers. The entire assembly probably costs around $25, but it's worth it if you have hundreds to install. The added bonus is that the tool also keeps the inserts from deforming when being inserted into the hole, which can also happen from time-to-time.
As expected I've used them before....

As expected I've used them before. I liked the fact the Rockler packages 16 in a package - my hardward store only has them in 4s, enough for only one shelf, which is crazy when you're building a bookcase. Rockler's service is excellent, they got here in notime, when I found I didn't want to purchase them locally.
