I make these sliders out of 1/8” 3000 series aluminum or 14 gauge steel. You can either mount Packouts as I have shown here in my van or just put a piece of wood over the packout slider for a solid floor.

They’re 500lb full slides that lock in and lock out.

Can you rotate the mountings 90 degrees so that drawers could open?

Interested. Wondering what's roughly the price for 54"? Btw, it looks like your PM is not turned on.

I can do so, I have mine oriented three facing the back and one facing 180 degrees to the inside of the van so I can access the drawers and cabinet from inside. I could have them facing 90 degrees if desired, it just places them up higher in the slider so the packouts would clear the sides of the sliders. 3445F89C-0525-4628-BF88-E458D64E8199.jpeg

Here is the flyer we have for the slider products. Sorry I couldn’t easily figure out how to get it from Drive to the forum …… soooo a picture hopefully will suffice for the time being. 44C068F2-8EA3-4C95-9E17-4FC6616EC123.jpeg

Just to clarify: it's kinda less versatile than other comparable sliding trays because it is designed around this Milwaukee storage box system, while also costing significantly more than comparable sliding trays?

Seems like it would be great for professionals who already use or want to adopt the Milwaukee system. Personally I'd be interested if you could make custom width trays, with built-in low-profile metal tray bottoms, for about 60% of the costs listed in the info sheet.

Thanks IceBreaker for the input, yep the work time for CNC cutting on our table, then the post prep after cutting, then CNC brake press work, welding and riveting costs certainly add up quickly on these Packet sliders, but we could make custom slide outs to various sizes with a smooth tray for less, as the cut and prep time would be reduced as well as the complexity for CNC table time. The Glides (slides) are fairly expensive for the 500lb lock in lock out which adds a significant bulk to the cost and aluminum sheets are equally eye watering anymore. I always get a little faint in the head when I have to buy them, I guess its the way things seem to be trending ...... upwards :-( let me know what your thinking and maybe there something we can do :)

If you use Accuride / allegis slides, you could use one locking and one non locking slide. That might save a few bucks, and would be a nicer solution than two locking slides.

I must be missing something, why would you not want a slide to lock?

Two locks makes it a two handed operation. It’s unnecessary. The one locking slide will sufficiently secure a drawer that wide with that much weight on it. Accuride makes the best slides out there. 500# units.
I’ve built a dozen or so various cargo systems using these slides. Here’s a pic of the kitchen slide out unit I built for our trailer that uses their 60” slides with one locking and one non locking.

Ahh ok, one lock per unit makes more sense now.

The accuride slides are nice but they are expensive, Ive used Vevor and SiraWeb for some of my sliders. Im just working on ways to get the cost down on custom aluminum or steel slides. Im currently looking for another source for our slides that offer good weight bearing at a cost that isn’t exorbitant. Also working on redesigning in .060 and .080 aluminum and 14 and 16 gauge steel variants And combinations of the two.
