New Blum Slide Upgrade USA
« on: February 15, 2013, 09:09 AM »
Good day friends!  I don't know but assume that this is national through Blum,  but yesterday I discovered that they have upgraded the 562H & 562.xx slides to a 563 model which also correlates to a new locking device that gets mounted to the drawer box. The new products allow left to right adjustment (awesome for inset doors) along with the existing Servo adjustment which gives you a small amount of adjustment in and out. The new slides offer an elongated horizontal hole as well to allow the slide to be pushed in or out as well...I believe that's a 4.5mm adjustment zone. The prices are basically the same for the slides and the locking devices are a bit more but well worth the adjustability! 

Just wanted to let you all know my findings!  I installed 7 pair and played with them. I'm very happy with the new features and am sure you will be as well!

I was looking at their demos during a Gary Katz Roadshow a while back, and wasn't very impressed myself.  It seemed to have poor repeatability, like their push-to-open. 
I'm glad that you're happy with them, and look forward to hearing more feedback from other users.

Like you said.. For inset doors they are sweet! They are just like old series but with left to right adj.  yes it's a different clip and like $2 more but worth way more when trying to install inset drawer fronts.
