Absolute piece of trash, a disgraceDaleThese are terrible, garbage quality, and not adjustable at all, so they will drag on the floor and not align properly with the other drawers. Do not buy this garbage.1

Not AdjustableHughI drove up to visit my son and his family and to help him assemble two different Besta units. Thoight it would take a day or two but it took all three of the days we had and after initial assembly they both looked terrible! Whilst the doors are adjustable, the soft close runner provided for both units is not so unless you're lucky the drawers will not line up at all. There are all sorts of tips and such to adjust the push to open style, but not these ones. Luckily I'm quite handy and was able to make manual adjustments, but it cost me a whole day I'd planned to spend enjoying with my son and his family - July 4th. Did not seem very Ikea-esk to me. Very poor design.1
when completed just as expected, high quality, and just what I was lead to believe the completed result would be!MiltonChallenging for me to assemble but hand work is not my expertise. Pleased with the final resulted completed assembly.5
Practical and easy to installRicardoThe units were easy to assemble and install. The variety of options available allowed us to do the configuration that was needed.5

I don't like theseCourtneyI really am not thrilled with these. I would have preferred normal drawer runners for my Besta unit (not "soft close" or "push to open," just some plain drawer runners like what my dressers have). I just don't find that these close softly at all. In fact, it's pretty hard to get my drawers to close all the way. It's hard to open them too; I can feel the whole unit wobble under the force of opening the drawers. Which is not exactly what I want for something my TV is sitting on. Hopefully that's something that breaks in over time. But I guess given the choice of these or the push to open runners, I would choose these.3

Easy to install and adjustJacquelineWe bought the Besta Rails for use with drawers in the TV unit. The rails were easy to install and very easy to adjust the alignment of the drawer by turning a few screws on the rail. The rails feel sturdy & well made.5
Quality is fine. The IkeaAlanQuality is fine. The Ikea website did not make it clear that these are NOT full extension drawer runners like I purchased before. If there are full extension runners available for Besta drawers, I sure can't find them on the website, have tried every search term I could think of.1
Works perfectly!DonnaI read reviews that the push-to-open rails did not work well, so chose these. They were easy to install on a Besta TV unit5
Better than the ones at the big box stores.Verified BuyerEasy to install, nice glide.5
Used in a Custom built cabinetVerified BuyerI was building a custom cabinet, with a drawer, for our TV, and wanted self-closing hardware. I was able to use the Besta drawer guides by drilling four 1/4 holes into the drawers to accommodate the prongs on the drawer guides. Works like a charm! They were far less expensive than comparable drawer guides, and great quality. I will be using them again!5
Better than previousVerified BuyerReplaced original “push in to open” drawer runners with these. Infinitely better.5
Verified BuyerI just installed a week ago and so far it is working soft, smooth. Love it. 4 star because the adjustment is a little tricky.4


What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
