How To Safely Base Mount Side Mount Drawer Slides


A question we are asked here at Dunn & Watson a lot is can telescopic drawer slides be base mounted? The short answer is yes however, it’s NOT as simple as turning them down on their side. To safely mount a side mount drawer slide as a base mount drawer slide, you are going to require four lengths of angle each at the length of the drawer slide you’re intending to use. You’re then required to mount one length of angle to the inside and outside of both drawer slides. This allows you to mount the slides down to the base of your floor and up to the base of the drawer or load you’re intending to carry. Examples of this would be the Bushmaster Series fridge slide which can be found at our website
