Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DLM Will never use again
Expecting problems, I spent a lot of extra time making sure that I built my cabinet perfectly to start with. Installed first drawer then spent about an hour trying to fine tune it before realizing that these slides just don't operate smoothly no matter what. Hard to start pull, makes loud clicking noise, do not glide smoothly opening or closing, again loud click when it hits the soft close. Directions useless. Zero tolerance, zero adjustably. These slides did not make me look very good to the customer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reconjack Very nice upgrade to any drawer, add on hardware isnt so great
After figuring out that I needed 22 inch soft close slides for my 18 inch drawers in the kitchen, install wasn't all that difficult. The directions are about useless as the only measurement they give that's correct is the 1 1/4" mounting of the slide to the drawer itself. The add on rear brackets needed for any face frame drawer (most any pre-built type stuff is face frame as was the run of the mill drawers I bought from Home Depot years back that these were going into), aren't very well designed. For a heavy duty slide setup like this, the brackets you are forced to buy to make it work are plastic (part D806), and the screws that come with them are all but worthless, too small in length and head size. After figuring out the proper measurements to mount them to the rear inside of my drawer housing, I used 1 5/8 inch dry wall screws that seated and held much better. The initial setup (figuring out which ones you need, vice hardware) will be a pain, but once they're installed and leveled, they work as intended even allowing the entire drawer to slide out of the cabinet itself unlike the low end slides that keep roughly 1/4 of the drawer hidden at max. As these were the only reasonable option I've found that was readily available, they are a good value and I would use them again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bigdan Use Rockler Rear Brackets
I purchased these and the Liberty rear brackets 'designed' for these slides. I installed everything to a T and bam, the drawer bottoms out an inch from closing. It was hitting the rear bracket. Thankfully, Liberty customer service provided me with the tech sheet, so I cross-referenced the slide with competitor brackets and the Rockler 757 series fit perfect and are flush fit. Everything now works great and I hope Kiberty sees this so they can redesign their horrible brackets, now!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richard38 Drawer Slide
The drawer slides work fine once properly installed. Installation was difficult in my cabinets. The rails require a flat surface for installation. My cabinets were fabricated differently. They had a frame with 1/4-1/2 inch veneer glued to the frame forming the outside of the cabinet. I had to glue and screw a spacer board to the veneer to make the flat surface. After the rails were installed I then had to add cardboard shims between the rails and spacer boards to adjust the distance between the rails so the drawer would open smoothly. The rails must be attached to the drawer and inside the cabinets with precision and consistency or the drawer will not be level, slide in and out easily or close properly. The product is fine but installation was difficult and time consuming (about 4hrs per drawer.).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by capnbobby Strong design and smooth closing
I used this set for a pull out shelf in my garage. When fully loaded with heavy items, the shelf pulls out easily and closes softly. One "2-pack" is for one drawer or shelf.
Depending on your drawer style, you may need additional brackets, sold separately
Be sure to align the slides so they are parallel on both sides of drawer. If they are not aligned you may have improper closing of drawer or shelf.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rlatham Additional Slide Set used
I previously used one of these slide systems to replace an Entertainment System Drawer Slide, which worked perfectly. This time I was faced with the need to replace a Kitchen Drawer system. The old drawer had nylon wheels and a side bar system that had all worn-out. Rather than replacing the cabinet which would have taken a full kitchen remodel, rebuilding the drawer seemed a better choice. The only thing you need to remember is this system needs parallel cabinet supports and 1/2 inch clearance on each side. These slides give you all of the advantages of the best Euro Cabinets without the high cost of a full remodel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mathguy74 Good product
Our 20 year old garbage drawer decided it no longer wanted to slide without great effort. The 22" version of this product was perfect dimensionally. I just kept the same center lines of the old holes presuming the alignment was good prior to bearing failure. The new product was more robust than the original. Installation was easy. And, it worked immediately without making any adjustments. What more can I say. Instructions give the bare minimum of important information, and I suggest anyone new to this figure out how to get everything to align before you start measuring and drilling as the instruction never address this critical aspect.

Certainly wish I had read the HD reviews before buying this product. I believe that I am a fairly capable carpenter and craftsman. Made a cabinet for my new bath with 4 drawers with the intent to use these slides. Made sure the new drawers were square and met all the tolerances specified by the rather skimpy instructions provided. As other people have said, I spent HOURS trying to get the drawers to close properly and slide well. Finally gave up and returned them all and bought the non-self closing type, hoping they would work, as I had already designed the cabinet around the slides. Thankfully, the non-self closing ones were a lot more tolerant and I am satisfied with their performance, even though I must close the drawers all the way myself. No big deal. I would not recommend that the average DIY guy try to use the self closing slides. Upon examination I was not thrilled with their engineering design either. I will say that the slides are ball bearing and claim to support 100 lbs and in that regard they seem well made.
