A drop-down fridge slide is a fantastic method to provide unrestricted access to your fridge unit without having to bend over or reach up high. The drop slide uses drawer slides to allow you to safely lower the fridge by a full 30cm in one fluid and easy motion which is powered by gas struts, bringing it to a perfectly horizontal position, and it can be quickly restored into its stowed position. This provides very convenient access to your fridge.
There are two popular types commonly used: drop-down and flat:
Drop-down slides are ideal for providing easy access to your fridge as slide lowers the fridge, while flat slides are better suited for getting to the top of your fridge.
If you have a drop-down fridge slide, you don't have to worry about bending over or reaching up high. The easy slide motion lowers the fridge down to a safe level, so you can easily access it without worrying about tipping it over.
If you have a flat slide, you'll need to be more careful when accessing your fridge. The slide doesn't lower the fridge all the way down, so you'll need to be careful not to tip it over. However, flat slides are still a convenient way to get to your fridge.
When looking to buy a drop down fridge slide, it's important to consider the following factors:
Make sure to choose a drop down fridge slide that can handle the weight of your fridge. Slides with a higher weight capacity can safely accommodate heavier appliances.
Make sure to choose a drop down fridge slide that is the right size for your appliance. Some slides are designed for larger fridges, while others are made for smaller appliances.
Not all drop down fridge slides will work with all vehicles. Be sure to choose a slide that is compatible with your specific vehicle. For instance, if your vehicle doesn't have enough depth then you should look into a side drop slide rather than a standard drop slide.
A key lock and tie-down is an amazing security feature in a drop slide as it keeps your fridge secure when your vehicle in moving.
The difficulty level of installing a drop down firdge slide in your vehicle may vary depending on the type of slide and vehicle.
