Berkshire drawer slide release, HOW????

I'm attaching a photo of a drawer slide in my motorhome. I feel like a fool for not being able to figure it out, BUT HOW DO YOU RELEASE THE DRAWER FROM THE SLIDE!!!

Fully extend the drawer and push up/down on both sides at once and it should slide right off.

To put it back on, do the extend the slides in the cabinet, line up the inner track that is on your drawer and slide them on. They will automatically slip over the locking mechanism when you push the drawer fully into the cabinet.

Those same drawer tracks are used on most cabinets in most home construction today.

I found out the instructions given to me here to either push up or down were correct. I even had to get a small phillips screwdriver to push behind the rail to assist in the vertical direction needed.


As far as the new homes having these slides, I'm glad I have a 9 year old house that does NOT have these slides.

The advantage to these slides is that they are "full Extension" making it easier to get at what you have in the back of the drawer.

They are significantly more expensive than the kind with the wheels in the back that fit into a slot in the track in the cabinet. They support more weight as a result.

I have never needed a screwdriver to remove them. Once you get accustomed to them they are actually easy to remove and replace.

I would not have any other kind. That said, that is why they make other kinds as well though. To each his/her own.
