The 5343 interlock slide works best in applications up to 5 drawers high.
We found that the connecting bars need to be precise in length to ensure that the system works, especially on more that 5 drawers. Otherwise, there can be a tolerance build-up causing problems with the mechanism opening.
However, it is possible to use this system with more than five drawers by cutting the connecting rods to fit between the slides using a dimensional tolerance of +/-0.1mm or better.
See the illustrations below for precise measurements. Use these dimensional tolerances:
• For 1-5 drawers, ± 0.25mm
• For 6-8 drawers, ± 0.1mm
