I need to find a replacement part for a Ronthor Drawer Glide that has U.S. Patent # 2857233. Do you have a part that would work? Thank you.

Yes, see SWISCO product code 32-031, rear drawer guide.
Check the sample against the dimensions we have online for this product, the patent may have been used on more than one size.

A quick learner from Maryland says:
I need a Ronthor drawer glide. I see how many people are having trouble finding them. You have pictured your Swisco "rear" door glide. I have a one piece Ronthor door glide where the back of the glide broke off. Do you have a replacement for the one pice door glide that runs about half of the length of the drawer. There is no serial number on the glide; just Ronthor.

Thank You,

Ken Lyons

You may be describing the Ronthor 3185530 drawer guide. If that is your guide, unfortunately a direct replacement is no longer available. If that is not your guide, please reply back here with some images of your drawer guide for us to take a look at.

Unfortunately, we do not carry this type of drawer slide at this time. I would recommend that you take it to a local "mom and pop" hardware store and see if they will be able to provide something for you. I am sorry that I am unable to help any further.
