    1. Hi Robin, please kindly contact your cabinet joint sales rep for support. However, we cannot seem to find any order for you, so we are assuming you placed your cabinet order elsewhere, in which case you would be best served by contacting your supplier for support. Thanks!

    1. The glides have a lifetime warranty, so we would recommend contacting Blum for a replacement if outside the Conestoga warranty.

  1. Hi,

    One of my drawers slides all the way in but then pops out about 1/2″. Any ideas? I watched the video and tried a few things but still pops back out.

    1. Hi, Dan. I can’t seem to find a project on file with us, so I would suggest contacting who you bought the cabinets from for assistance with this.

  2. Hi Brian,
    We are building inset cabinets. Is there an in/out adjustment? Our drawer boxes are not even so the drawer front sticks out on one side and is not flush.

    1. Hi Kathleen,
      To adjust the drawer box in and out, remove the drawer box from the cabinet to access the inset mounting blocks. Loosen the screw that attaches the drawer glide to the mounting block. Then you can adjust the drawer track in and out to make the drawer front flush with the front frame. Once the slides are readjusted, tighten the screw and place the drawer box back on the glides. This video beginning at 10 min 25 sec shows this process.

  3. Hi! One of my drawers doesn’t close itself all the way in by itself, it stops absout 1,5 cm before the most closed position. It is possible to close it by a small touch though. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Kalle,
      Thanks for your question. I cannot locate your job file in our system.
      I would recommend you contacting the cabinet coach who assisted you with your project to figure out a way to fix the drawer glide issue.

  4. To allow for more adjustment on the front of the drawer box, does it make sense to move the gray lever to the middle position so it can also be lowered if mounted too high? Just want to make sure there isn’t a downside. Thanks.

    1. Hey Peter thanks for your question – I don’t see any significant issues with your proposed approach, however, you get more adjustment ‘travel’ when you start fully justified one direction or another. Also, in our experience, it is uncommon to need to adjust every drawer this way, so we find it simpler to manage the exceptions rather than the rule. Thx!

  5. Thanks for the video. You saved my bacon when I had to remove a drawer. The adjustment tutorial was spot on.

  6. Two of my drawers no longer “soft close” and the installer is no longer around to help with this to instruct or adjust the settings. Please share how to fix this problem to avoid a slam in these two drawers.
