Metal Glide with Lever
Most furnishings come equipped with metal glide drawers, and luckily it’s pretty simple to remove them. First, always make sure you remove the top drawer first—no matter what kind of drawers you have—so your nightstand or chest of drawers doesn’t tip over due to being top heavy. Position yourself in front of the furniture before sliding the drawer out as far as possible.
Feel around for the track levers, which you’ll find in the middle of each track on both sides. Then press both levers down at the same time while you pull the drawer toward yourself. It should lift out quite easily.
If the drawers of your dresser, nightstand or chest of drawers don’t come out as easily as they should, maybe it’s time to get new furniture that is easier to work with.
