    Flap Slider Hardware - Custom?

    Hi there,

    I want a bit of hardware to do this... but I don't know if it exists.
    I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to read the description and point me in the right direction if they know of anything that fits the bill.

    I have a desktop - say 90cm x 150cm - divided into a front 60cm and a rear 30cm strip. - I would like the rear section of the desk to drop down and slide underneath the front section of the desk.

    So - a 30cm full extension slide would do "side to side" motion, but what I am looking for, is a contoured slide, where the lid would first drop by say 20mm, and then, slide 300mm.

    Does such a slider exist, or is there something I could customise?

    Many thanks,

    Gavin

    Hi Brent,

    Well you have seen my other post on the "Ambitious Office Project".....

    Looking at the desk, there is the rear section, where the "monitor lifts" are.
    I have been vexed by this one, and I really wasn't happy with the back just "popping up" I felt that something a little more clever could be done...

    So, with this hardware, I would rather like to see the back, slide underneath the central portion of the desk. You will notice that the front desk drawers are "short", so I have reserved this little space for the back ;o)

    Best

    Gavin
