The usual method of installing side-mount slides onto a drawer box involves a lot of measuring, marking and room for error. With the Rockler Drawer Installation Brackets, the process is much simpler and more intuitive. Just clamp the brackets in place wherever your drawer needs to be, set the drawer onto the brackets, pull out the slides and drive your screws. Since you can visually see the location of your drawer and whether or not it's level, you're less likely to make a mistake. Each bracket has a shoulder that rests on a rail or the cabinet bottom, providing a positive reference stop. Alternatively, you can butt the bracket upwards against the cabinet member of the slide. This method is ideal when the cabinet member is installed using our Universal Drawer Slide Jig (#57302, sold separately), which always locates the slide toward the bottom of the opening. For frameless cabinets, simply turn the bracket around so it points to the inside of the cabinet, press upwards against the cabinet member, and clamp against the sidewall.


Features:

  • Works with any side-mounted, ball-bearing style slide: Centerline, KV, Accuride etc.
  • Large clamping area for both faceframe and frameless cabinets
  • 12'' length provides a stable platform for your drawer
  • Durable foamed nylon construction

This made the drawer installation simple and easy. You'll need some clamps to keep it secure, worked fine with face clamps.

So I don’t have to measure out the drawer slides and chance mounting the bracket to the drawer itself in the wrong location.

The Kreg drawer slide jig would sag in the front when I tried to clamp it to face frame and rest drawer on it to install the slides to the drawer box. Hoping this jig performs better.

Wayne P on Feb 9, 2020
Looks better than the ones I tried to make and the price is right. Here's hoping for something that makes placing drawers and glides just a little easier to get right the first time. Keeping my fingers crossed. :)

constructing a cooking station for a patio which will have full extension drawer slides and this item will certainly help out.
MERLIN S on Nov 9, 2019
I've never been able to line up exactly the two sliders (one on the drawer and one on the wall next to the drawer). I would think that you might make it just a little clearer in your video! Now, hopefully, I might get it right!

Rockler Undermount Drawer Slide Jig
Rockler Undermount Drawer Slide Jig
BEST ANSWER: The Rockler Undermount jig is for undermount slides, typically Blum and the drawer sits on the slide. Totally different slide and install. Side mounts have 2 components, one attached to the drawer, the other to the cabinet. The Rockler Drawer Installation is to help install the drawer component in the correct position, the Universal Drawer Slide Jig is for the cabinet component.
How thick is the top lip of the bracket that sits on the cabinet rail.
Jim S on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The lip is about 3/16. So the drawer will not rub when in use.
Does this come as a pair with the left and right bracket, or are they sold separately?
Hector T on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are sold and packaged as a pair or brackets, one marked left and the other marked right.
is this a kreg knockoff,,i have tried the kreg and didnt like it?
jeffrey on Apr 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This is Rockler product, and from the user's answers, it seems to work well.
i tried the kreg jig and do not like it,,can anyone tell me if this is a better product than kreg?
jeffrey on Apr 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I did a few demos at the store with these brackets and they worked well for me. We have a number of cabinet maker customers who use them, and judging by the volume of sales, they are pretty popular and save time on the job. They can be easily returned if you do not like them.
