How-To Adjust Drawers

Install your DIY kitchen like a professional today!

Your U-Install-It cabinets arrive pre-assembled, with drawers installed. After the cabinet is installed, you may need to adjust your drawers to be level.

U-Install-It uses Blum Tip-On drawer hardware as a standard, which comes with a lifetime warranty.

Adjusting drawers is quick and easy to do. If your U-Install-It project uses our alternative drawer runner system, DRG, please contact your consultant for details on adjusting drawers.
