Please Identify This Drawer Hardware4/11
One of these drawer rail sockets has broken but I can't seem to find the part that matches the dimensions and whole pattern. Can anyone identify the brand or part by the logo on the rivet or the part number on the plastic? See the photos I've included. The number seems to be 931.000.36. It's 4" or 100mm long.
The bad news is that it's a Mepla slide and they are no longer in business.
The good news is that is a standard bottom mount euro slide, so although you will have to replace the entire slide/socket combo (both sides) you should have no problem finding replacements form several manufacturers. Also, they are very inexpensive.
Just measure the length of the slide and the inside measurement of the cabinet to find a replacement. Any good cabinet hardware vendor can help you out.
Thanks. That would explain why I can't find the part by the part number.
IT looks like the rear mount on the slides that CHBriggs sells.
You are absolutely correct in your assessment.
On a side note:
The stylized "L" shape in the logo refers to the owners family name; "Lautenschläger". I worked for Horst Lautenschläger in the 1980's.
Mepla was purchased by Würth, as was Grass. The brand name of Grass was retained although you can still find reminents of the Lautenschläger Mepla product in today's Grass offerings.
Damn. I feel old. :)
Dennis, That's probably why I came across a Grass Series 1702 socket when I used Mark's information about Mepla. I searched google for 'Mepla drawer rear mount sockets' and Grass came up in the search. They make something similar that's 100mm long so I ordered a few to see if it worked. I'll report back.
Did it work? I've had the same failure with the same part number. And it failed in the same way.
