Installing new drawer glides in existing drawers

14 years ago

Our kitchen remodel is still a long way off. One of the things I hate about my current kit. is the drawer glides. The ones that aren't broken and hard to use only open about half way, and they don't hold much weight without the risk of joining the ranks of broken drawers.

So I'm thinking of installing some full extension, soft-close drawer glides. Dh said he doesn't have time to mess with it. So I said maybe I could do it myself. He said he was serious about not having time to mess with it. I said I was serious about trying to do it myself. How hard could it be? I can use a drill, tape measure, and level.

How hard can it be? Are there glides that are easier to install than others? Currently the glides are one single undermounted glide. Thought maybe I could replace it with two undermount glides.
