|Fig.1 Damaged roller|
Supplies and Tools:
Drawer roller kit right side
Spray Silicone (metal roller)
Doing a huge repair list in Santa Clarita for a client moving to Colorado. The telephone desk needed new rollers for the drawer to roll smoothly.
This post shows the three steps to repairing this telephone desk drawer rolling slides.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the left side of the drawer has two rollers and they are one unit. These needed to be stapled in place rather than being screwed into the wood.
Step 2: Identify the damaged part. The right side had lost its roller and the drawer was not rolling smoothly. Bring the part to the store. The part was purchased at Ace Hardware® for a few dollars.
Step 3: Fig.2 shows the new rolling assembly for this drawer.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows the telephone desk drawer rolling smoothly again. Once the roller is installed a little spray of silicone on the metal roller will make a major difference. This job is done.
