Docking Drawer Blade or Blade Duo Installation
4 Key Cabinet Measurements
You need 4 KEY CABINET MEASUREMENTS to confirm that a Docking Drawer Blade or a Docking Drawer Blade Duo will fit into your cabinet.
Measure the Cabinet Depth
Start by measuring the cabinet's depth. Docking Drawer Blade and Blade Duo outlets are designed to fit into base cabinets from 6" UP TO 24" deep.
Measure Drawer Box Width (OD)
Both the Docking Drawer Blade and Blade Duo require a drawer box that is AT LEAST 15" WIDE. This ensures that there is enough clearance for both the outlet and the undermount slides to function without any issues. Using side mounted slides? If so, the drawer box could be narrower.
(See the Docking Drawer Specification Library for more details).
Measure Space Behind Drawer Box
Then measure the space available behind the drawer box.
