DZ2731CL - a light duty with lock-in and full extension

This small drawer slide packs a punch with its features. Only 27mm high and capable of taking loads up to 30kg, the latest Accuride drawer slide, the 2731CL, also has a unique lock-in.

This telescopic slide has 100% extension, making it ideal for areas needing full access. But the really clever bit is the front release lever. This type of lock-in mechanism is normally only found on really heavy duty slides, but Accuride felt that this function could be useful in lower load applications too.

The design of the front lever means that it can be clipped out and replaced quickly without the use of tools.

Pictured is a typical application in convenience stores where the slide is used on display shelves. The shelf can be easily pulled fully open for restocking and then is held securely in the closed position for display.

We consider that this slide would also be an asset for designs in mobile applications such as trolleys and van storage systems.

The 2731CL is available from stock in 7 lengths of 20cm – 50cm and can be bought through Accuride’s extensive network of distribution partners.
