With the drawer box assembled, you are now ready to fit the packer and runners
  • Some general observations for fitting the internal shallow Tandembox
  • The 25mm packer supplied with your kit goes on the hinge side of your unit, and allows the drawer to clear the hinges
  • To assist with the positioning, please note that the bottom of the packer lines up with the bottom of your drawer box
  • Decide on the position of your internal drawers using the following factors
  • Equally space them in the unit if you have 3 or 4
  • Space them in the unit depending on what will be stored - eg cereal boxes/tins/etc

  • With the position decided, place the packer 5mm back from the edge of the unit and put a screw in the first hole
  • Tighten the screw so that the packer stays in position

  • Check the packer is level by measuring front and back
  • When packer is level, put in the other two screws then secure all 3

  • Hold the runner in position flush with the front and bottom of the packer
  • Mark two or three holes in pencil

  • Use your cordless driver and a screw to start the holes before presenting runner
  • Just start the hole off, do not go in the full length of the screw
  • Finally, fit runner using the screws supplied
  • Make sure the screws do not go in at an angle, as this can snag the drawer
  • With the runner and packer fitted, you can now fit the runner on the other side.
  • The easiest way to do this is to measure to the hole centres on the runner just fitted
  • Transfer this size over to the other side, remembering to come in 5mm from the edge of the unit
  • Mark a line inside the unit using a set square to ensure it is level
  • Hold the runner in position 5mm back from the front edge, with the long line running right through the hole centres
  • Mark 2 to 3 holes in pencil
  • As before, start the holes off with a screw, then secure the runner with four screws
  • With the runners fully retracted inside the unit, lay the box onto the runners approx 25% of the way in
  • Push the box downward and in toward the back of the unit
  • The box should click into place in the runner and locate itself
  • Installation is complete
