    Default Removing drawers on Mac & Snap On Tool Boxes

    I've got a Mac Tools 10 draw top box & a Snap On 3 Draw step up box, both of which are quite old & were bought 2nd hand.

    I've bought a new Britool 3 draw section to go underneath the Mac Tool box. Since the box is full to brimming with tools, I'll need to empty it in order to lift it & get the new one underneath. Rather than empty each draw individually, is it possible to pull out the drawer off the runner sections, leaving the tools inside & saving me having to reorganise them?

    They're ball bearing runners if that makes a difference. I'll take pics of the Mac & the Snap On type tonight 'cos it'll be good to know how to do this on the other box too since I've got some tidying to do

    Snap On Runners:


    Pics aren't too good, but you get the idea

    Erm, no.
    Pics are already on my home pc. Box is at my old mans garage so won't be emptying it until the weekend so I was hoping I'd get an answer by then

    the snap on box, and most others allow for the draws to come off the runners.

    Snapon can supply a tool to do this, rather like a flexi bit of steel.

    You slide this over the outside of the runner, and pull the draw out.

    Its comlicated to explain, easier to show.
