    Are you just holding that fitting there or is that where the screw holes are? I suspect that if you look carefully you will see the indents for that fitting to fit to the door and then the slider part goes with it.

    Coincidentally I've got mine to fit too. Just checked it......

    if you rub your finger quite hard down the side of the door you should be able to feel the prepared holes. They're not obvious

    If it helps they're 15 cm ish down from the top and 15 cm ish up from the bottom

    As dray says - almost all integrated fridge freezers have little indents punched into the door edge which is where you screw the slider bracket to the door. No indents = no problem. Look at the pics I attached of two I’ve just done. The sliders are positioned around 130-150mm from the top and bottom of each door. Make sure you position these to avoid extra hinge holes which may be drilled into your door. Place your sliders in position, and mark the hole positions on the door. You then need to carefully drill 2mm pilot holes through the metalwork. Fix the slider brackets to the door using the self-tappers which should have come with the brackets.

    Thankyou mate.

    I appreciate it, I don’t have the correct drill bit to hand. I’ll give it a whirl tomorrow.

    cheers

    Would you just go 130 top? and bottom, shouldn’t make a difference. Typical no indents, just gives me piece of mind lol

    The more critical part of fitting these is that at least one of them is close to where the pull handles on the cabinet doors are.
    This will help with longevity of the setup working correctly.

    If you have one slider just either side of where the door is pulled it will work well and feel nice and solid, if fitted correctly.

    If your cabinet door handles are at the bottom then having a slider at the top of the door is not strictly necessary.
    It does however, help hold the doors stable with each other and it is generally thought one near the top and one near the bottom.
