I recently remodeled my kitchen. I installed new cabinets with soft closing doors and drawers. Unfortunately, something fell behind one of the drawers and broke the pivoting plastic head on the drawer slides' shock absorber. I am looking for replacement parts.
I've done some research and found the drawer hardware comes from "Bella Group" out of Australia. According to their web site they now manufacture out of China where their products are known as "BellaHardware". There is a PDF file of their drawer products at the site. The drawer slide I need is from a "MO1 Series Bella Deluxe Drawer With Twin Lateral Railing".
I have the drawings, measurements and even pictures; but I can't find any place that mentions this type of hardware. I have attempted to email the company directly through their web sites' "contact us" function to ask them if they can sell me a set of drawer slides but got no response.
Does anyone know a location north of Toronto, or a web site where I could get some BellaHardware?
Thanks in advance.
Hi Maurice, I checked the site and noticed that they make a lot of reference to "Blum" hardware. It is hard to tell from the PDF but it looks like the "BLumotion" line from Blum might be a direct replacement. Lee Valley carries most of the Blum products and does on line purchasing if you don't want to travel to the store. Your best bet may be to take the existing parts to the nearest retail location (there is 1 on Steeles near HWY 400) and see if they can match it. You can check it out at the following link -
What happened to the cabinet shop that made them? They should also have a source for parts.
Good Luck with it!

Thanks for the reply Jim. I'll compare the dimensions to the BLumotion hardware. but I have to admit Lee Valley is a secret addiction of mine and I've been to the store on Steeles. I looked at the pictures of the undermount Drawer slides on the Lee Valley web site and didn't see anything similar. But I was looking for something identical and didn't look closely at the dimensions. Your idea to bring it to Lee Valley and ask them to match it is probably my best bet...I'm just shocked that its been so difficult to find the same part.
I'm not sure which site you were looking at, but the site with the drawings for my part is
http://www.juststone.com.au/ The drawer I have is in their Hinge and Drawer Systems catalogue on page 24.
As for the shop that made the cabinets ? There is a sticker on the back of the cabinets I bought. It says Southbrook Cabinetry. There is no address on the sticker and I can't find them on the web. The guy I bought them from said he gets them in the north end of Toronto somewhere. If I could find out where they are I would simply go there. I purchased them through an "outfit" from Perkinsfield. I don't want to mention names because I don't have much good to say about the guy.
I spent a year planning out the details for this reno. Bought all the appliances before I started. I knocked down a wall, rewired and plumbed the new kitchen and installed hardwood flooring throughout the house before installing the cabinets. Because I was taking time off work to do the job myself, I was trying to keep to a tight schedule. I looked at some different options for cabinets and decided to buy them through this guy from Perkinsfield. He told me he could get me all my cabinets in 4 weeks. I gave him 8... to make sure there wouldn't be any complications. Well. To keep a long story short... he was late, he didn't have all the cabinets and what he did have was mostly wrong. We eventually sorted it out. I'm satisfied with what I eventually got. He's been paid and his part is done. But he was so incompetent that I would rather not deal with him again. Even if its just to ask him for the address of Southbrook Cabinetry.
If I can't find out where Southbrook Cabinetry is or if I can't find the part somewhere else, maybe I'll take a drive over to Lee Valley.
Thanks again for the reply.
