Blum Mounting Sockets
High quality product. You need these if you order the Blum drawer slides.I could use one of the existing screw holes so it wasn't hard to attach.

Quality that lasts
A quality product but I bought the wrong size. It has been difficult finding a 1 inch socket. To fix my drawer, I turned my broken socket upside down and switched sides, then duct taped the top part! So far, so good.

Blum mounting sockets make life easier
Had a different brand before...not good for drawer shelves with canned goods on. After several months item "X" shelves would break the sockets, even after replacement(S).

I used the Blum Sockets and haven't had to replace a Blum since and I haven't removed any canned goods, either!

these extensions aren't made to hold much weight. I know I have 4 drawers that these broke on. I'll replace them with new ones however I have to support the drawers with something more.

These are great replacements for the broken and weak ones that were original to the house. According to the Q&A, these will work with non-Blum 3/4 drawer slides. So, I bit!

What are the dimensions of the inside opening for the slide to fit?
Drew N on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used these to replace an old slide. I think it was about an inch from the sides in the back of the cabinet, whatever the distance is at the front of the cabinet. It has to be the same as the front.
