Sidemount glides are a type of drawer guide that attach to the sides of a drawer rather than the bottom, enabling drawers to open and close smoothly. These glides are commonly used in bathroom and kitchen cabinet drawers and can support drawers of various sizes and depths. Homeowners have the option to choose between partially or fully extending sidemount glides. Partial extensions prevent the drawer from completely opening, whereas full-extension glides allow the drawer to open completely, revealing the contents at the back. For safety, both types of sidemount glides are available with full-stop features that prevent the drawer from falling out of the cabinet.
