New Rockler Jig Simplifies Drawer Slide Installations

Drawer Slide Jig

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Universal Drawer Slide Jig, which holds drawer slides in position to ensure level, even installment. The jig fits most types of drawer slides, including ball-bearing and epoxy-coated side-mount slides as well as center-mount slides.

Medina, MN (PRWEB) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Universal Drawer Slide Jig, which holds drawer slides in position to ensure level, even installment. The jig fits most types of drawer slides, including ball-bearing and epoxy-coated side-mount slides as well as center-mount slides.

Featuring an innovative locking wedge, the Universal Drawer Slide Jig holds the slide securely for installation. Once the slide is locked in place, the user then presses the jig guide against the face of the cabinet, which levels and squares the slide and positions it with the proper setback. Cutouts in the jig body allow access for drill and driver bits as the user secures the slide with screws. Once the slide is fastened, the user slides the locking wedge open, which releases the jig from the newly installed slide.

"The Universal Drawer Slide Jig simplifies every step necessary to install drawer slides accurately," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of product marketing and strategy. "From alignment to leveling to spacing, this jig does it all. It's a big time and frustration saver for anyone who needs to install drawer slides."

An adjustable indexing rod can be extended from the top or bottom of the jig to set slide height settings to ensure each pair of slides will share perfect lateral alignment. The indexing rod is stored onboard when not in use. The user can either hold the jig in place using the ergonomic handle or clamp it in place to steady the apparatus while the slide is affixed to the cabinet with screws.

The Universal Drawer Slide Jig (57302) retails for $29.99 and can be purchased at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler.com, or from the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit http://www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
