Solid construction. Had to replace original slides that broke - what a difference!! Only complaint is with instructions. In order to "flush mount" so drawer is flush with desktop, I would move everything back about 1/2" so the end of the slide is not flush with front of drawer as shirt sleeves get caught on the end tab and the rubber tip keeps falling off. Now that I have it all together, it's a pain to move.

Works great
I retrofitted an armoire I bought at Habitat ReStore to be a computer station. These slides were perfect for the project. The directions were easy to understand, however one dimension was stated incorrectly. But it is a strong and sturdy keyboard slide.

Product is heavy duty, easily mounted, sliding mechanism operates very smoothly. Saved a ton of money compared with buying a pre-made sliding keyboard tray.

Variable Height Keyboard Slides
I am very pleased with the keyboard slides that I purchased for a computer desk I build for my daughter. The slides are very well made and strong. The action of the slide is very smooth and has a lock to hold it in or out. It is easy to install and will make an average computer desk a whole lot better functioning and looking. Would recommend these to everyone.

My pc cabinet from Sauder was discontinued in 2008 and they don't carry the replacement parts anymore for the keyboard slide. They recommended you.

To create a drawer for the keyboard for our desktop (tower) computer. Keeps the keyboard out of the way when not in use.

I used this to finish a computer desk. The keyboard slide is outstanding, and is easy to install. It gave the desk a real professional feel and look when completed.

Why is the maximum keyboard width specified as 24 inches? Since there are two independent brackets why can't you place them 36 inches apart ?
James H on Jun 12, 2016
I only have 12in. Depth...can these slides be cut down and still be useable?
Steve K on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I suppose if you are very good with a saw maybe. You would have to do the following:
1) remove inner slides from static brackets (not sure you can do that.
2) Cut static brackets
3)probably make some sort of stop on the static brackets.
4) Cut inner slides being careful to leave enough ball bearings.
5)Reattach inner slides.
So if you can remove the inner slides and make four exact cuts,
What is the extension? I plan to use this with a laptop, not a keyboard.
Jim J on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Full extension. To get a precise measurement, just slide an unmounted slide determine where you want to mount keyboard slide.
My keyboard shelf is 12" deep, but 34" wide. Will this hardware work with my keyboard shelf?
Darlene on May 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think these will do the job nicely. You would want to get the 14" or larger ones.
Since the spacing of the brackets is not fixed they can easily support a 36" wide shelf.
When I built a computer desk for my son last year,, he wanted to type without pulling the shelf out, so we mounted blocks under the desk top to increase the spacing between the desk top and the shelf mounted underneath.
I need to mount the slides without the mounting brackets, that is, directly to the vertical surface of the desk. It looks as though that may be possible, but there is no reference to such a possibility anywhere. Is it possible?
James C on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The slides could be mounted to a vertical surface using the screw hole that would normally be used to attach the mounting brackets. The front of the slide might interfere with the front edge of the vertical surface when it is fully retracted so some shims might be needed allow the front of the slide to clear the front edge of the vertical surface. Hope that helps.
My keyboard tray is 11" deep. How far apart are the tabs that mount the glides to the tray?
Jerry P on Jan 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You didn't say what size you bought. On the 16" slides the tray tabs are 6-1/2 inches apart with the closest one being 2-3/4 inches from the front of the slide. FYI: My trays are usually 12x30 which leaves room for a large gaming keyboard and a mouse pad and have had no issues going beyond recommended width max. of 24 inches.
My keyboard is 14 1/2" deep. Will it work properly with a 16" slide?
Bud B on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is a huge keyboard! The 16" slide supports a 16 inch shelf, but only extends 11-1/2 inches. Some of your keyboard may be under the desktop, so position it as far forward as possible if you need access to the last 3 inches.
I need a pull out shelf, not tray , for a laptop , can you attach a shelf to the slides ? Or only your trays ?
Simon on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I attached them to a shelf I built. Works great!.
I need a slide 15" in length, do you have this size????
joseph p on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This keyboard slide is not available in 15" length.
Could this be mounted on the top side of the shelf instead of undermounted? My computer armoire has a drawer below the shelf and I would rather not lose it to install the keyboard. Thx
Ranchgirl on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The answer is yes. Make sure you adjust the height and have enough room for the key board and sup[piort board since both will be below the key board.
How does the friction latch work? Do you just pull it out until it latches, or is there a lever somewhere?
