Jerry is right, but I might check with Lee Valley for sure. All the slides I have seen of this type require 1/2” clearance per side. It’s been my experience, that going a little more than the 1” under for the drawer size is better. Not much though. If the drawer is a little loose, you can shim the guide. If it’s too tight, you must sand the side of the drawer, and that is a real pain.
