How to Repair Kitchen Drawer Slides

Fig.1 Damaged
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Cordless screwdriver with Phillips bit
Sheetrock screws

This kitchen had imported its cabinets from Mexico. The entire cabinets was stapled and had plastic edges that were stapled to hold the drawer slide in place.  The problem is that the slides were all loose and Mrs. Jan wanted a quick fix to repair the problem but not replace the drawer slides.

This post shows the two steps on how to solves the kitchen drawer slides.

Step 1: Locate the damaged slides and Fig.1 and fig.2 shows one screw has been placed to secure the slide.

Step 2: Each of the slides was made of metal and each had a hole in the top of the bracket. One sheetrock screws per slide took care of the problem. Fig.3 shows the cordless driver placing a Phillips sheetrock screw into the drawer slide. Now Mrs. Jan could have her ladies group over without having her kitchen all torn apart to repair the damaged slides.
