Gliderite 22 inch slides
« on: March 18, 2021, 11:53 PM »
Has anyone used Gliderite 22 inch slides?

I've got some 2275's on order, and I'm planning to install them with the LR32 system.  I would like to get started on the cabinet boxes this weekend, but without the slides in hand, I can't confirm the hole locations.

Does anyone that has used them know where the 5mm holes are located on the cabinet member?  I'm pretty confident the first hole is 35mm from the front, but if anybody out there knows location of the back 5mm hole, I would be very appreciative.

Thanks much.

I have 2270 Gliderite slides. Not sure if they are the same as 2275s. Want me to measure them?

Thank you VERY much for the offer, but it looks to me like they are laid out differently than the 2275’s. The holes in the 2270 appear to be farther back because the 2275 has to make room back there for the soft close mechanism.

The holes are probably the same distance apart (probably 32mm) so you could just count or calculate to locate the last hole. Easier if you have a picture.

I expect you're right that they're a multiple of 32mm from the front hole. 

The picture in the original post is the only one I have, and I'm not even sure it's a 22" slide - it's the product image from their website, and I think they're using the same image for multiple lengths.  Even if I knew it was 22", the holes are sort of out there in the middle, without a row of holes leading to them. And at that angle, I'm not confident in my ability to measure from the image.

I should have ordered slides with published dimensions (or ordered them sooner).

You could go ahead and drill more than enough holes if you’re confident of the 32mm pattern. Excess holes will be covered by the slide. Use the special 5mm slide screws.

Just for posterity's sake, in case anyone else plans as poorly as I did and orders their slides too late...

The center of the first 5mm hole is indeed 35mm from the front.

Then, from that point, there are three more 5mm holes located (from the first hole, not from the front of the slide):

64mm
224mm
352mm

(And the product picture on their website is definitely NOT a 22" slide).

64mm plus 5x32 = 224mm, plus 4x32 = 352mm

Just be careful with those measurements - all slides that I've used, the first hole should be set back 37mm from the front edge, not 35mm. This sets the runner back 2mm.

I agree with lincoln.  First hole is almost always 37mm the hole is 35mm on the actual slide to give a 2mm gap between the front of the cabinet and front of slide.  Helps keep the drawer closed all the way.
