Drawer Repair

A purchasing agent from Raleigh, NC says:

The little wheels/rollers came off the side of a dresser drawer. The drawer itself has heavy duty metal sides (6" x 14-1/2") and the drawer front, back and bottom are wood/MDF. There are plastic brackets attached to both sides at the top back, where the metal sides meet the wood back. These brackets are 1-1/2" long, including one projection that sticks out to the side (guide?) and another that consists of two small arms that surround the wheel.

The wheels themselves are small (1/2" dia.?), attatch to the very corner of the drawer side, and roll beneath a lip on the top edge on the outside of the drawer side panel. Near teh wheel, two small indentions act as a stop for the wheel. The wheels came out from the hole they were in.

I only have the drawer; the wheels were lost and the dresser is in another location. This is dorm-room furniture, which is meant to be sturdy, however, this hardware seems too fragile to last and we anticipate future repairs. I do not know the manufacturer. the closest item I found on the site was #32-039, but I have no way of knowing if it is the right wheel. If you know how to get the brackets as well, I would probably want some of those, too.

What do you think?

Thank you for posting! I do not believe we have an exact match for these rollers. You may have to replace the whole drawer slide kit. We have a few new products in our catalog that I think you should look at, each one a Self-Closing Drawer Slide Pair of a different length.

For lengths varying from 12" to 24", please see our 32-056, 32-057, 32-058, 32-059, 32-060, 32-061, and 32-062, and let me know what you think!
