If you arent inclined to modify the basket sliders at lowes, etc. I would suggest checking online at the container store. I saw lots of great things there (if you're willing to pay for them)

If you are concerned about it you might consider attaching to the bottom of the cabinet instead. Mine are just box construction cabinets so I screwed into the rear cabinet support across the back edge. I did the same at front. Just a thought.

What did you use for the shelf support? Did you just screw in blocks for the shelves?

Another way would be to mount your door to the pull outs ( remove the hinges If you check kitchen designs some pantry's are made this way. This effectively makes a large vertical drawer front.

Sorry late reply. Tied up at work.

I used the Lowes brand shelves and they have a thin metal bracket along the front and back that you use to mount to cabinet bottom. Obviously if you are using another type that may not be an option.

Live and learn - I put in the 2-tier version of the Lowe's shelf linked just above. The upper shelf has our liquer and cooking oil, etc. on it (taller shelf). My first driving with the shelf in place was just the 10 minutes from the storage lot to our house. When I got in the trailer to start loading stuff in for the weekend, I found both shelves fully extended and the cabinet door in pieces. The part attached to the hinges was still attached and the part with the handle was on the floor. Kinda came apart where the panel was glued together. I've got a temp fix in place (I hope it works) with an eye-bolt in the side shelf support and some stiff wire through it and around the top shelf frame, plus a metal shim holding the lower shelf to the upper shelf. Thinking about drilling through the shelf guide into the side support and putting a pin of some kind in for travel. I've re-glued the door and it is almost good as new. I'll re-mount it at the campground this evening. sigh

Sorry to hear that. I use baby cabinet locks to keep doors from opening. Cheap and quick. Just food for thought.

it's really more that I have to stop the sliding shelves from sliding. They are only about 1/4" from the door, but I still wouldn't it banging into it. thanks though
