This cabinet sliding drawer is well made. It is pre-assembled, and heavy - do the in-store pick-up instead of shipment if you can. A metal bracket under the drawer slides provide 6 attachment points. You'll be on your elbows, hopefully with an cordless drill, to pre-drill the mounting holes. Mark and drive in the screws _through_ the wire backet as reaching over the pulled out draw is near impossible. Also, before marking your screw holes make sure the the slides are positioned all the way forward (tape them in place maybe?)
The draw itself takes over an inch of the usable height - I lost the ability to stack two soup cans on top of each other - but the easier access should help make up for the loss of space.
There is some sag with the front loaded with several cans and the basket all the way extended. This is unavoidable given the design compromises required (slide height and mass). Not a problem - but it would probably not be a good idea to leave extended for a long time with a lot of weight on the slides. The action of the slides themselves is very smooth due to the ball bearing construction. Note: only 12 screws are provided with 24 possible screw points available. Save some screws for the far back were the counter leverage is needed most!
