SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Will your Kenlin work as a replacement.

A quick learner from so. cal. says:
I have a pretty old cabinet with 2 drawers. I took the drawers out because they were not staying on track. I found that the plastic guides were broke. I supposed that having the guides broken was why the drawers no longer worked properly.
the plastic piece bares the name of your company and a 3. and patent pending. No other markings . It looks like your 32-082, but I need to be absolutely sure I am ordering the right replacement.
Any help, advise would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for submitting your photos.

Both the Swisco 32-081 Kenlin Drawer Socket and the 32-082 Heavy Duty Kenlin Socket will work as replacements, as they are interchangeable parts.

ok, here goes. I recently received replacement hardware for a couple of drawers as the plastic guides wore out on the old ones. So I put all the new parts on in exactly the place the old ones were. [Used the old screw holes] So now I cannot get the draw back on the track. I have struggled with this and yet I know nothing could be this hard. What is the secret to putting my drawers back?

Please note the pic I am sending is the original one I sent when ordering the replacement.

HELP!!! My wife wants the drawers back in asap!!!

Hey Jack, sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your replacement project. The first thing I can suggest is to see if the guide slides on the track without it being attached to the drawer. Also, make sure your track isn't damaged or bent in any way.
A quick learner says:
I had to make sure that the sides of the drawer were high enough to clear the slide pads at the sides. If I didn't then the sides would catch
