The conversion kit includes a new set of outside guides, adaptors, and a sheet of instructions regarding the removal of the old guides and the installation of the new units. They will replace the left and right plastic adaptors. The kit includes hardware for one drawer or sliding shelf. For 24" deep cabinets only. Available in white.
Note: Merillat discontinued the drawer slide brackets. The replacement guides in the conversion kit can be used as a substitute to these older slide brackets.

First things first. Came with no instructions and had to figure out how to remove the old ones. FYI. The bottom tab on the old ones has Barb on it so it pulls/ pushes straight out. Comes out hard, but that's how it comes out. Might be best to use some kind of a forked tool like for removing car Interiors. Once the bottom one is out tip up the plastic piece so that the ear on the top one can come out.
For the new ones. Easy install. Rollers are better than the originals. Thought they were a bit high-priced, and don't like that you have to buy them in separate pieces, but if they last another 25 years I guess they are worth it. The lady at merillat knew exactly what I needed. She was good. Overall very happy with the product. Just seems like 60 bucks to repair one drawer is a little high.

The replacement part that is offered seems to work well. Its just a shame it's taken almost 30 years for the company to make and sell this repair product. I'm sure there going to sell thousands of these.
After doctoring my broken ones up for years. I've used Gorilla glue, super glue, zip-ties, tape, wire, anything I could. Because going to local home improvement stores that sell Merillat Cabinets couldn't offer any help in offering replacement drawer guides. Some had old stock but after buying that, they broke at the same rate as my original ones. Its been a problem in my kitchen for over 15 years. Merillat offers a beautiful line of kitchen cabinets. Just a terrible rail system for there drawers and roll-out trays inside there cabinets. Its a well known problem in Any of the
blogs and reviews and has been a problem for years. Why didn't they offer these as a fix years ago? Well, it seems now they have a fix. Just too bad I'm going to have to spend over three to four hundred dollars to replace all of mine (14) sets at roughly $26 dollars a set. You do the math. All I can say, the new parts are working for now.

We wanted to move the slide out drawer from one cabinet to another. Unfortunately, you can't pull out the plastic pieces that anchor them to the back of the cabinet without being them. So we need to get new plastic pieces. We could not find just plastic pieces so we ordered the whole kit. Everything works just as it should.

We ordered a replacement part for our 25 year old Merrilat sliding drawer cabinet. The online rep knew exactly what I needed, told me how to order online, and reassured me the part was correct. The part came in promptly, was easy to replace and fits perfectly. Thank you!

While this product does exactly what it is supposed to do, I really only needed the plastic clips. My old rails were in perfect shape, the clips had broken. Couldn't purchase just new clips.

Kit came without instructions so I called and they were emailed to me. wish they were send with the kit. Parts went in well and seem to work fine.

The new brackets worked well, but came with no instructions. The shipping package was not very secure. The plastic end caps had come off some of the brackets, and some brackets had bent ends that had to be bent back into shape. If done better, these new brackets work fine otherwise.

I was worried, I've had my kitchen for about 25 years. However, the new conversion kit fit perfectly and the drawer slides easier than it ever did. Thank you!

The hardest part was removing the old part that had a plastic clip . Once I removed that part installing the new part was very quick (under two minutes).
