Movento vs. Tandem5/23
Movento has side to side adjustment, makes it worth the extra few dollars per pair.
Tandem does too.
I have to admit that the side to side adjustment on Tandem is news to me. Is that tool-free, or does it require a screwdriver?
I prefer Movento and use them where possible.
Tandem does have side to side adjustment .
Thanks Russel. Tandem also has in and out adjustment (costs more than just side to side) "PV" clips I think. Dont know if Movento has that.. I forget.
Gentlemen, I have been confused. In my part of Canada, I have never before heard of side to side adjustment on Tandem slides. I apologize for any confusion I caused.
The only Tandem slides available through my distributors are the 560/566 series. The only front locking devices for that series have no side to side adjustment.
I hunted around on the web and finally some light started to dawn. (I think)
Those of you with side to side adjustment on the Tandem slides must be using the 563/569 series?? As far as I know these are not available through Canadian distributors.
Movento has a depth adjustment bracket where you need it, but I have never used them. I have only used these slides with overlay fronts.
Sorry, I don't know how the notches and holes compare between Movento and side to side Tandem... Looks like it could be similar...
Hopefully I haven't yet again spouted off a bunch of nonsense...
I usually use Tandems but have used Movento on a couple of occasions. The Movento specs call for a larger back notch, but I think that's only needed with the Tip-on option.
What I didn't like about the Movento was that there are some small bosses on the bottom of the mounting bracket which prevented the side mounting holes from quite lining up with my standard Tandem mounting holes (frameless cabinets).
After using Blum for decades I switched to grass dynapro as front clips were often breaking. Too much plastic. I then tried the hettich Quattro slides and have been very happy with them. I prefer using the Blum front drawer adjusters for my side to side and up and down adjustment of face as there is more adjustment and more user friendly. Makes installing drawer fronts fast as well. We use the regular nylon front clip which is very flexible and strong as opposed to Blums cheap plastic . 12.50 with clips and the quietest tracks I have ever used. Harold.
