How to Customize Plastic Drawer Storage Units
There are little tabs inside each of the 4 corners under each drawer that allow the drawers to separate. (Skinny fingers help.) You can rearrange, add, or remove drawers. You can take two units and make them into one. Or do what I’ve done and take a drawer from one to give to the other:
I already had the 6-drawer model, which I’d bought years ago. (Nice to know they still make these things exactly the same.) I needed another unit, but it needed to be slightly shorter to fit the space I have for it. All the units are the same height, so I bought a 4-drawer unit thinking I was going to have to cut it down with a hacksaw. But no, I just had to push the little tabs! No hacksaw needed! I’m so pleased, I just had to share my discovery. (Does that make me some kind of storage geek?)
So, now I have a 7-drawer unit and a 3-drawer one. This is all part of the ongoing studio reorganization process, I promise!
Okay, I have to admit, the product description page SAYS these things are modular. I just never noticed before.
