Installing Blum Tandem Glides in deep cabinets where rear bracket will not work

4 thoughts on “Installing Blum Tandem Glides in DEEP Cabinets (27 and 30″ Deep)

  1. How would you install side mounted glides when the cabinet has side by side drawers with no divider, for example a standard center stile base with 2 drawers and 2 doors?

    1. You would need to suspend a piece of plywood from the ceiling of the cabinet (ideally, just screw it through the cabinet top strips). The only purpose of that plywood is to support the glides, so the plywood can be any scrap you have laying around. Doubling up 2 pieces of 3/4″ will perfectly flush the suspended plywood with the front frame opening.

  2. For the deep cabinets with inset drawers, do you still use the plastic Inset Mounting Brackets for the front end of the slide? Or just plywood?

    1. Hey Miranda, thank you for your question. For inset cabinetry, you could do it either way. The benefit of using the Inset Mounting Bracket is the front-to-back adjustment to square the drawer front with the face frame (this assumes you use the slot when mounting the back of the glide to the plywood spacers). Have a great day!
