How can you fix a drawer slide (the bar it slides on) in cabinet when you can't reach back far enough to put new screw in. Have to be a contortionist. to reach over drawer separators and hold the screw......and use either a looooong screwdriver or looooooong extension on a drill.

    Can you take the drawer below it out so you are possibly able to get to it more easily? That can be a difficult screw to relplace!

    Most drawers come out, if you are having trouble getting it out there may be a stop that needs pushed. My sons cabinets have the slow close drawers and there is a little tab he has to push to get them out.

      the 3 drawers are out.....there is a partition between drawers (wood) so the space you have to reach in is about 6" at the most. Can't get arm back far enough to reach screw on back wall

    Hmmmm - can you put a board up in the back of the cupboard to hold that slider up, just attaching the board to the back of the cabinet? I am not sure how else to do it.
