Very inexpensive way to close drawers....

Terry R from Evansville, Indiana Posted August 17, 2009
Very inexpensive way to close drawers. Just threw the instructions away and made a poster board pattern which made it a simple task. Any wood worker should find these easy to install on any drawer. Have ordered more of these as I am very happy with item. Look for Rockler to come up with new great products.

This stopped the problem of drawers...

Bertrand B from Ocean Posted January 17, 2009
This stopped the problem of drawers rolling out of a file cabinet I built using ball-bearing side-mounted guides. The guides had no closing detent, and the soft-close adapter added enough detent to keep the drawers in place. On a heavily loaded file drawer, you may need two, and don't expect it to pull the drawer closed - but it will keep it closed.

Installation instructions not crystal clear. Finally,...

Guest from Fort Collins, CO Posted August 7, 2009
Installation instructions not crystal clear. Finally, after a bit of experimenting, I determined that the location of this adapter & latch is not critical as long as you can mount it so that the latch mounted on the drawer is in a position that it allows the drawer to completely close. The adapter is far enough back in the cabinet to catch the latch and far enough back to allow the drawer to close. The height above the slide at which you mount the adapter only needs to be such that allows the latch on the drawer to clear the opening of the drawer. For my 22" drawers, it took two adapters to close each drawer. This was true even with the shallow drawers.I had 22 adapters to install. So I fabricated a mounting template/jig that locates the adapter my required distance from the back of the cabinet, the distance above the slides and parallel to the slides. The jig was simply a quarter inch piece of scrap ply with a slot to hold the adapter as I positioned it in the cabinet. The adapter must be mounted parallel to the slides. You also have to be careful not to overtighten the screws on the adapter as they are plastic that can be easily deformed or cracked.On a scale of 1(difficult) to 5(easy)Ease of Installation: 4 (w/ countertop off)Functionality: 3 (works as designed)Installation instructions: 2
