The self-closing function of the 8417 makes it a perfect choice for kitchen drawers. Other features include full extension and a 100 lb weight capacity.

I ordered 4 pairs of 14" KV-8450FM soft close drawer slides for the project I am working on. The slides arrived very quickly and were easy to mount. There are several mounting holes to choose from, including slots, which make fine tuning adjustments easy. The only issue is that the rear mounting brackets are a separate item and are not included with the slide purchase. Be careful to order enough brackets, as they come in singles, whereas the slides are sold in pairs.

The KV 8417 is all I expected. They were easy to install. They work flawlessly and quietly. Having full extension slides in the kitchen is an excellent idea. Best price I could find anywhere, and I DID look!

I was very satisfied with the product and shipping only to find out that there were no screws supplied to install the slides. I went back to see if I had missed something in the small print but there was nothing about having to order screws separate. The set that I got from a local supplier had the screws in the package.

These slides require a precise installation. I ended up using playing cards as shims to finally get these perfectly aligned. It took up to an hour a drawer. I did 14 drawers in my kitchen so it was a full weekend of installation. The end result was fantastic! Very smooth and a lighter pull than other soft close slides I have used. I installed them on drawers from 10" wide to huge 36" drawers holding 50-60 lbs. Even with this weight they glide effortlessly and soft close perfectly. Right now my rating is 4.5. It's a 5 if they still work like this after 5 years.

everything went great - no issues
Service was good
Perfect, just as you would expect!
They had the advice and parts I needed, received 2 days after order placed. Make sure to get a VIX bit for your hinges if you need to drill new holes- perfectly centered and don't let you drill through the front of your cabinets,
I needed a cabinet hinge part that wasn't available at the typical store. CabinetParts.com has a great range and really good prices and excellent delivery service.
