Grass Tipmatic runners

Post by promhandicam » Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:56 pm

Is it necessary to use the lock / adaptor and connecting rod whatever the width of the drawer with these runners? I've used the blum ones in the past and didn't use the connecting rod despite the drawers being quite wide - around 800mm IIRC.

Cheers,

Using the bar makes it so you can press the front anywhere and they still release/lock. Unlike the Blum version where you have to press right in the center.

You definitely need to use the connecting bar. If it's not there, the spring in the runner on the opposite side to the latch acts to twist the whole thing. Yes, the price really adds up but they work well.
