what size drawer?

Do these channels need to go in a 3 track drawer?
Asked by: nac53
Yes. You need a 3 rung drawer.

The Elfa Drawer File Channels do indeed come with the pieces to attach the channels to the drawer.

Would these work in conjuction with the Walnut elfa décor Drawer Frame?

Would these work in conjunction with the Walnut elfa décor Drawer Frame? The reason I'm asking is because I would love to install file drawers in a new Elfa wall system. I would put the drawers at standing height so I could file while standing. If not, maybe that's something that Elfa should consider! Thank you! :)
Asked by: jkbunny
None of the gliding drawers (decor or hanging) which suspend from brackets are designed to work with the drawer channels. These gliding components are not designed or tested for the purpose of storing files.

For letter size files, would a 14" system work, or would you need an 18" system?

Also, your description indicates a 3-runner drawer is needed to accommodate the files. Does there also need to be an empty runner space above the drawer to make room for the tops of the hanging files and potential tabs?
Asked by: Merg
Letter-size hanging file folders, along with Drawer File Channels, fit within a standard Medium 3-Runner Drawer. Legal-size hanging file folders fit within a standard Wide 3-Runner Drawer. Because of the tapered base, the Narrow Drawer does not accommodate hanging file folders.

How do I move the clips?

The installer put this in too wide and now I can't move the clips closer together.
Asked by: ssdc
The clips of our elfa Drawer File Channels should be adjustable by sliding them into place along the rim of an elfa 3-Runner Mesh Drawer. For further assistance, contact us at 1-888-CONTAIN (266-8246).

Can these be used with the regular Elfa Drawers?

The product description says it can be used with wire or mesh drawers. However, the answer to the only question about this product says that it is only intended to be used with the Elfa FILE drawer systems, not with any other drawers. I have several free-standing, medium-width Elfa systems that I have used for many things over the years (love, love, love them) and the latest preferred incarnation is as a file cabinet. Can these file channels be used with those? Thanks!
Asked by: Lago
This particular product can be used with any elfa non-decor style elfa drawer, and it will fit nicely in your freestanding medium elfa drawer system.
