drawer plastic guideSome cabinet drawers have drawer guides on either side of them. They have one-half of the guide mounted to the drawer and the other half mounted to the inside of the cabinet opening.

Other drawers have a plastic guide that is stapled to the top rear of the drawer. These can break off or become damaged (they are plastic after all) and need replaced. The fortunate thing though is it that it is easy.

These style of drawers ride on either wood runners or the runners may be covered with plastic for easier gliding. The rear of the drawer rides on a guide down the center of the opening. Remove the plastic guide and take it with you. They are usually color coded and so you can just buy the right color which should be the right size. Match them up just to make sure.

When you get home you can reattach the new plastic guide. If you don’t have a heavy duty stapler, you can use some screws to hold the guide on. Use at least two screws in opposing corners so that the guide won’t move. Once it is attached, place the plastic clip onto the guide and slide the drawer into position.
