I had the older Tandem 560H (Canadian) self-closing runners and wanted to upgrade to the same runners but with Blumotion (with 'soft' self-closing). Every supplier and every contractor told me it couldn't be done without major cabinet reconstruction.But during my days and weeks of research, I kept noticing that every graphic and every dimension made it appear that it was possible. So I took the chance and ordered the Tandem 563F Full ext slide with Blumotion.The 563F Blumotion runner installed in minutes! Even the screw holes lined up! And I didn't even have to change out or even move the orange locking devices.I now enjoy my new 'soft' self-closing drawers with Blumotion and thank CabinetParts.com for carrying so many different parts which help me track down exactly what I needed.
We are building a house. My husband is doing this all by himself. He is not a carpenter by trade. He was a police officer for 42 years. He had used traditional drawer slides in the past. He said they were always easier for him to get even. But since he has tried these Tandem drawer slides he will never use anything else. He says they are by-far the best slides he has ever used. This is the fourth house he has built in his lifetime. I wanted more drawers than doors in our kitchen cabinets, but he wasn't looking forward to this until he put in the first set of Tandem slides. Now I'm getting the kitchen I wanted. Thank you for having this product.
The Blum 563F drawer slide works great and once installed. The installation instructions are very difficult to understand. I watched the instruction video on Cabinet Parts .Com's web site, as well as the instruction sheets from Blum. All I can say is it don't work that way in the field. You can count on building the drawers at least twice. It's good practice right... There are things on the instruction sheets that have no further information, like #49... it says refer to #49 and there is no instruction for #49... they go up to #38 but no farther. You can figure it out but still why put it on the sheet it take more time... you scrutinize the sheet looking for #49, you scour the internet looking for #49. The installation take twice as long as it should because the instructions were obviously written by a engineer not a carpenter.
you need to have a few skills, and access to some hand tools to install the drawer slides. If installed correctly, they are wonderful slides. Smooth and durable.
Great customer service. I thought I had ordered the wrong size but a phone call to tech support gave me a quick and easy solution to the problem.
Correct parts, fast delivery and fair prices.
After considerable research this is the best trash bin cabinet based on value and large size of waste baskets
