The easiest and most popular way of fitting slides into metal cabinets is by using runners with bayonet lancings. Instead of using screws, both the cabinet and drawer runner feature bayonet lancings, which are metal tabs that fit snugly and securely into pre-cut square slots on the mounting surface of the cabinet and drawer, or into ladder strip brackets.
Ladder strip brackets
Brackets like our DZLADD ladder strip provide ready-made slots for the lancings to fit into. Watch this video to find out how the ladder brackets work.
Pre-cut square slots
Alternatively, you can use pre-cut square slots on the mounting surface of the cabinet and drawer.
The dimensions change depending on the slide series so download the correct installation guide from the website for more help.
Note dimensions A and B on the manufacturing illustrations for the cut outs on the drawer and cabinet. These dimensions have a +1mm or -1 mm factor. This allows for the easy installation of the bayonets and for the front bayonet to be the controlling feature for positional accuracy.
