[Princess Auto] $6-$10 => 50% off Full Extension Drawer slides [for a pair]

If your kitchen is in need of some more drawers or if you have deep pantry shelves, consider making a full slide in drawer for not a lot of money but fantastic functionality.
If you have those slides with wheels, you could replace them with these and make them full extension....no drawers to build.

Princess Auto has these on sale periodically. Excellent prices when they are 50% [$6 for 10' to $10 for 22'].

Home Depot sells these for $29 [3x sale price of PA]

You'll need a few tools.

These are great. Built a bunk bed & used these to build two massive drawers underneath. Each replaced one of my kids dressers, giving them more floor space. Strong enough that even when caught them sitting in them, they neither bent nor broke!

Perfect. I am building some drawers for my work bench and was going to use wood slides. But these are much better!
thanks OP!

For people making own drawers, where do you get the front outside piece? I don't even know where to find the exact colour/wood.

Here's a YT vid re converting the shelf to drawers. I'm going to do this.

UPDATE: Oct 2020 - I posted another video from Ana White in post number 40. She updated a new way she does the drawers and it's good.

while these are a great deal, if you're going to add drawer slides to your kitchen, buy the best you can afford.

a soft close like these will make a much more pleasing experience than the PA ones

for the workshop or other area the PA ones will be great and are much better than the typical "Euro" ones most kitchens have

They have some short soft closing ones on sale too, but they are a different design.

Lee Valley has a ton of different drawer slides, but stuff there rarely goes on sale.

A kitchen can have quite a few of these so the $ can add up quick when you compare $50 for that soft close vs $10 for this. These drawers are not soft close...otherwise, they just work and for the majority of ppl who don't have soft close doors/drawers, these are going to be ok and they aren't any different than the $30 Richelieu ones.

This is a very budget friendly upgrade.

I just replaced one of my drawers and used the lee valley soft close slides and I'm not terribly impressed by it. Its quite hard to open past the soft close mechanism.

I did this to all my lower drawers in my kitchen customized to fit my needs. Unfortunately my doors don't fully open like hers... so I had to "shim" a side for clearance. I made mine out of cheap particle board core melamine. Been fine for a few yrs.

Check amazon for deals as well as they sell 10 packs for pretty decent prices at times.

Nice deal OP, gonna pick up a few sets / sizes.

Would these be good for a DIY spice rack? Might also put a few bottles of sauces on it so it might be heavy..

For kitchens consider mcfadden's undermount slides. They're relatively inexpensive, soft close, are easier to install, and better tolerance than side-mounted slides for non-perfectly square drawer boxes.

I retrofitted three 22" drawers for pots and they've been holding up great for 2+ years now, still slide and close like new.

Never heard of McFaddens. Is this a retail operation? Only GTA location is Vaughan except Oakville HO.
Undermount's can't really be used for converting pantry (non bottom).

Any decent solution for large drawers themselves? 28in wide 32in deep, 16in tall? Have one of those and 3x 18x32.

Normally all our stuff is Blum, tandem etc. But this is a outdoor bbq cabinet I'm doing myself.. Which doesn't need same level..

The 28' full extension slide is also on sale. You can use that for the 32" deep cabinet. It's good enough.
