Installing Adjustable Guide Rails

Installing Adjustable Guide Rails

Adjustable guide rails support storage devices. Due to their adjustable feature, the adjustable rails also allow the storage devices to be installed in the cabinets with different depths.


The required installation tools and materials include:

  • M3 to M6 Phillips screwdriver
  • Marker
  • M6 screws
  • Square-hole positioning pins (for square-hole mounting bars)
  • Round-hole positioning pins (for round-hole mounting bars)


  • Storage devices must be installed on guide rails. Stacking devices may cause damage.
  • The guide rails must be installed horizontally.

Before performing the installation, you are advised to count several U scales upward from the position of the first scale on the bottom of the left mounting bar, and then mark the position to ensure that the front and rear height of the adjustable guide rails are the same.


  • If possible, start the installation from the bottommost allowed space in your cabinet.
  • A pair of adjustable guide rails is included with each storage device.
  • The length of the adjustable guide rail ranges from 600 mm (23.64 inches) to 900 mm (35.46 inches).
  • The square-hole positioning pins have been assembled on the adjustable guide rails before delivery. If the installation holes of the screws are round, change the square-hole positioning pins to round-hole positioning pins before installing the adjustable guide rails.

You can find round-hole positioning pins in the accessory bag delivered with the devices.

The following is a recommended method for installing adjustable guide rails (using square-hole positioning pins as an example).


  1. On the front of the cabinet, align the bottom margin of the adjustable guide rail with an integer U scale mark on the mounting bar, and fully insert the front positioning pin into the square hole.
  2. Stretch the adjustable guide rail and thread the positioning pins through the rear square holes on the mounting bar.
  3. Attach the adjustable guide rails with M6 screws.

    • Attach the adjustable guide rails for a 6 U and 4 U storage device, as shown in Figure 5-57.

    • Attach the adjustable guide rails for a 3 U storage device, as shown in Figure 5-58.

    • Attach the adjustable guide rails for a 2 U storage device, as shown in Figure 5-59.
