center mount drawer rail

A handy person from Troy, New York says:
Hello,

I am trying to repair a heavy dresser drawer. The 'track' is wood, but the missing 'rail' is metal. It is 1-1/4" wide and 16-3/4" long. I am attaching pictures. Do you have such an item?? I need 2.

Thank you!
Patty

Thanks for posting, Patty. Please take a look at our 32-063 Complete Drawer Track Kit. Do you think this might work for you? Let me know!

Hi Dave,

I think 32-063 might work. However, the 2-sided edges seem to be 'L' shaped, whereas the 3-sided outer edges on the existing rail, look 'U' shaped. What will keep the rail on the wooden track?

Thanks
Patty

Actually, the metal track of the 32-063 kit is shaped more like a "C" and really holds the nylon guide in the track. I have used this track for drawer repairs myself with great success. Does it sound like it might be better?
