Non-electric hands-free built in trash with face-frame cabinets

2 years ago

Hi! A question about pull-out trash accessories. We just ordered Schrock full-overlay cabinets (this is a face-frame system, not frameless). I would really like some kind of hands-free way to open the trash drawer. I was told to look through the Rev-a-Shelf options and pick something out, but none of them are appealing and they are super expensive.

It doesn't have to open all the way hands-free, just get it started. This is an 18" pull out trash base. I want two cans in the drawer, and I'd like them to hang from the top rather than sit on something that will get dirty. I am not wild about the Blum electric openers, which seem likely to break and/or be annoying. The foot pedal from Hafele is much more appealing, but it sounds like it works only with frameless cabinets. Does anyone know if it would work with face frame cabinets, or is there some other pedal that would work with what we're getting?

Thank you!
