How to fix the front onto a pan drawer


Pan DrawerThe guide below explains how to fix the drawer front to the pan drawer mechanism.

Pan drawers are similar to normal drawers but rails are fitted on either side of the drawer box back and the rear of the drawer front.

Please Note:
There is no different drilling position for the handle-less version of the pan drawer fixing.

Drill 4 pilot holes for drawer front clips and 2 pilot holes for side rail cup brackets in the positions shown on rear of drawer front. Then screw fix drawer front clips and side rail cup brackets to the rear of the drawer front.

    You had to send my pan drawer fronts separate to the rest of the kitchen so I’m attaching them myself now. I really don’t understand the cup brackets/side rail part of the instructions. I’m not sure if I’ve not been sent the cup brackets or if they’re already attached to my side rails (there are white plastic plug type things on the end of them) It looks like I may have to drill a 10mm hole part way into the back of the drawer front to put these into, but it doesn’t line up with the instructions above so wasn’t sure how to proceed, can you advise please?
