Loose Seals (something to put on the checklist!)

This morning, the DW was on the floor in our Yoga Studio (you may know it as the kitchen) and said, "hey! there's light coming through here!" and pointed under the sink.

I leapt into action, naturally, and discovered that these screws (see photo) that hold the seals to the frame were loose---like flopping-around-almost-out loose.

The screws that were really loose were basically under the kitchen area. But the entire slide's screws were a little loose (in our case, extending along the sofa area). Checking the rest--the screws were loose on the bedroom vanity slide too (but not nearly as much). The other side was ok.

Anyway, wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on them...

I'm assuming you re-tightened them?

Did they all torque up as they should?


Screwed into wood or metal?

I keep an eye on mine too. Some of the holes have stripped out, and it is easy to move the screw a few inches and re-use the self tapping screw.
