I purchased some real cheap glides a while back and the ball bearings fell out of a couple during installation. I cant remember the brand. Looking for decent quality and great price. What do you recommend?

I need 20 @ 22”, 100% ext, soft close, side mount glides. They can’t be more than 2.25 tall.

Thanks Jocks and Jocketts

Grizzly has pretty decent ones at a reasonable price. I used them in my kitchen remodel.

I have had problems with cheap self closing bb drawer runners, – not the bearings, but the soft close mechanism.

You might have to bite the bullet and buy Accuride if you don’t want to be disappointed.

I was wondering how long the soft close would work. Maybe I won’t get soft close. They’re for my workbench drawers. I thought soft close would be nice but I don’t want to pay a premium if they’re not reliable.

Never thought of Grizzly for glides. Thanks.
