I bought it to replace an older one (installed about 10 years ago) which broke. It is a little tricky to attach it and properly align it to the underside of the desk surface but works well once installed.For the shelf itself (not included) I used a prefabricated laminate 3/4" shelf (16" deep X 24" wide)
Very well made channels that are easy to install. I made a keyboard tray and once I installed it, the slide out motion turned out quiet and smooth. Very sturdy even when mounted into a cheap desk made from wood veneer. I wanted a deep tray so the 16 Inch channels worked perfect.
Pros: Durable, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Nice Design

Review 4 for 16 in. Adjustable Keyboard Slide
from Mpls, MN
If you buy this, buy replacement screws too

No, I do not recommend this product.
We installed the D807 Series Keyboard Slide into a hardwood desktop; we pre-tapped the holes. While turning the screws (hand turning with a screwdriver, not a drill), several screws snapped. So we had to re-measure and tap new holes, and the tray is no longer in the perfect position...overall disappointing and it added more time for a "quick" project.
The screws are too soft, so don't waste your time with them as we did. We still went ahead with installing this, hopefully the rest of the materials aren't as cheap as the screws.
For replacement screws, you'll need 14 #8 x 5/8 pan head wood screws.
The under counter keyboard tray hardware was perfect. Installation was a piece of cake. We are not using the tray for a keyboard but using it to stow away a remote hard drive, phone charger, blue tooth charger, calculator and other stuff that was making the desktop messy. These are necessary items to have at hand, but not accessible all of the time.
If anyone is looking for a very good quality sliders at a low price, this is perhaps it. Had to change the keyboard sliders/rails for our computer cart, for which the keyboard kept sliding in and wasn't locking in place. The installation took about 1.5 hrs. If you still want to save, just run to a near by home depot and pick it up (costs $10!)

Review 10 for 16 in. Adjustable Keyboard Slide
It is exactly as advertised, and very simple to install. It replaced my old drawer slides with little issue.
These keyboard slides work smoothly, are sturdy, and really do the job. By purchasing a 24" by 36" shelf board, fasterning the keyboard slides, and screwing to the underside of my desk, I made myself an inexpensive and robust tray for my keyboard.
I originally thought that the person who said the screws were bad just didn't know what he was doing. In my case the screws didn't break, but the heads stripped out very easily. The only screws I "lost" were the ones that went in to the desk. The ones for the keyboard tray did ok.
Fortunately I had some self-drilling #10 screws that I used to secure the sliders to the desk.
I'm giving it 4 stars because it was easy to mount and I like the sliders themselves seem to be of good quality. So as a previous posted stated, buy some good #8 3/4" or 1" screws and use them.
Remember to make sure whatever screws you do get are not longer than the depths of your desk top or keyboard tray.
I almost purchased a set of slides for my new keyboard drawer from Rockler for almost twice the price because of the previous review. The original slides had broken after years of use. I made a new drawer out of Maple. I rethought it and decided to go with the Home Depot slides, Very nice slides, they roll smoothly and lock in place when retracted. The screws went in with no problem, just make sure you drill the right size pilot hole! Just like a square peg you can't drive a screw into a round hole if its not the right size. A very good product, I would buy it again with no reservations.
Fulfills exactly what I wanted. I built a desk inside my closet and this was the perfect finishing touch. I had originally planned on buying an entire keyboard tray, but instead I picked up a 16 in. piece of wood and painted it to match the rest of my desk and shelves. Most people said they had problems with the screws..I've been there, although I did not have a problem with these. Just be gentle with them. No need for extra power. Smooth gliding, easy install, no sharp edges!
Good product functions exactly as anticipated. Better price than comparable products on the market. Only feature I wish it had would be a hold open function since it does tend to move some when using the keyboard. Great value for the price.
One slider from my keyboard tray came apart, and I found this slider set at the local Home Depot. It was obviously of superior quality to the OEM slide assembly, and it required only minor adjustments to be fitted in place of the defective item. I've been using this slider set for over a year and am extremely satisfied. Very high quality!!!
