    • Push the metal glides back into the track until it clicks back in place.

Thank you! I built a table for a Dewalt 733 Planer that a friend gave to me. I used scrap material, pretty much, from my pole barn project, to complete this workshop table. I decided that a drawer would be good to hold my extra knives and correct tools for changing the blades. My table is a bit deeper than 24”, so I checked out drawer slides at Lowe’s. I was shocked to see that I could purchase the 24” soft close heavy duty slides for $6.98/pair! Regular price was almost $26! I grabbed those babies up and lit a shuck to the cash register! 😂 I hadn’t put slides into a cabinet for a couple years, so I brushed up with this very well laid out set of instructions and am now more confident that I will be able to install these well-built slides with ease! You are much appreciated! Thanks, again! Amber
