Take your tape measure with you to Lowe's! When I bought mine there, I bought 22" slides, and when I got ready to put them in, I found they were too short and wouldn't fit. The slides were actually 20". The bag was clearly marked 22". I took them back, and half of the slides in the bin were mismarked by the manufacturer! I am sure it was an isolated incident, but it beats a return trip.

Do tracks have some type of locking mechanism to keep closed in panic stop? Has anyone used jig referred to in earlier post? Larry

Larry - Not sure how that works - I know you have to pick up the drawer to open it. Will have to check that out before going to the work of installing them. Thanks for the heads-up, wouldn't have throught of that.

I'm going to order one of the jigs so when Chuck has to install them he'll have it.

Thanks for the input. Donna (dj)

I replaced the ones on the drawer under the sink with ball bearing rails from Lowes; they have no catches on them. Davis cabinets replaced the remainder last summer and they all have spring loaded catches on them.

The (2) factory installed ball bearing drawer slides in our kitchen have brown plastic catches attached to the drawer face
