Pan drawers will need a further hole drilling to take the support rods. Using a 10mm drill bit, drill another hole a maximum of 13mm deep.
Insert the end of the support rod into the hole and straighten it out to expand the rod end in place.

You can then snap the other end of the rod into the back of the drawer as shown above.
The drawer front can now be adjusted by twisted the rods in either direction.

Step 3 - Fitting and removing the drawer fronts
