How To Remove A Cabinet Drawer With Alure Home Improvements

Well, wonder no more! Thanks to Doug Cornwell, chief operating officer of Alure Home Improvements, you will quickly learn all you need to know about how to properly remove a cabinet drawer. And, just as important, he’ll instruct you on the right way to put it back.You think it’s easy? Maybe it used to be, but not since progress made the life of the cabinet drawer far more complicated. Today, many modern drawers—especially those in higher-end cabinets and fancy furniture—have a pair of under-mounted drawer slides that are fully concealed in order to showcase the quality of the wooden drawers’ construction. These slides glide along tracks, also known as runners, which hold the slide’s rollers into place to promote smooth-running action.The old drawer assemblies didn’t rely on these advancements.“The way drawer runners are made today a lot of them are bottom-mount,” Cornwell explains.“You used to be able to just tilt it and pull it out,” he adds. “These actually have a connection underneath.”In this recent installment of Alure Home Improvements’ “60-Second Fix: How To Remove Your Cabinet Drawers,” Cornwell begins by reaching under the fully extended drawer with both hands.As the video shows, underneath the drawer are two orange locking devices. They are positioned on each runner near the front of the cabinet drawer. Their purpose is to prevent someone from unthinkingly opening the drawer so fast it slides all the way out and spills its contents on the floor by your feet. If it’s a kitchen drawer filled with knives, that removal can be a little dicey. So there’s a reason drawers have adopted this technology. But mastering the technique may take a few more moments of your precious time than you ever thought you’d spend on thinking about cabinet drawers.Thankfully, given his expertise, Cornwell makes it seem like a no-brainer. He tells you to grab these devices, grasp their handles in your fingers, and release their spring latches.“Once you click them,” he says, “that releases the drawer.”Click here to learn more about Alure Home ImprovementsTo return the drawer to its original position in the cabinet, first line up the two notches at the end of the drawer so the slides can rest snugly on the track runners.“Slowly push the drawer back in,” he says with a smile. “Push it all the way back in until she clicks—and then you’re locked on track.”last_img read more

As Canada nears zero COVID-19 deaths, officials fear reopening spike, US risk

first_imgCanadian deaths edged up eight to 8,798 according to government data late Tuesday, while the total number of cases grew by 331, to 108,486. By contrast, the United States recently set a one-day record in new cases with 60,500 as the national death toll rose to more than 135,000.But health experts and politicians fret the sacrifices Canadians made could be imperiled as the economy moves to a full reopening including schools, especially in heavily populated central Canada, and as US authorities struggle to contain the spread south of the border.”Everyone is preparing for a potential spike in cases … I think that’s inevitable,” said Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist at Toronto General Hospital.”Opening up the economy is not a linear path. There will be setbacks (and) we will very likely have to reimpose public health restrictions in certain areas because of an unacceptable number of new cases.” Canada’s efforts to flatten the curve of coronavirus cases have put the country on the cusp of zero deaths from COVID-19 for the first time since March, but officials see worrying signs of a new spike as provinces lift restrictions.For months, Canadians followed strict public health rules on social movement as the 10 provinces quickly shut down large parts of the economy, ramped up testing and boosted space in intensive care units.Some provinces curbed internal journeys while Ottawa barred international visitors, closed the land border to non-essential travel with the United States, which has become a global pandemic epicenter, and deployed military staff to hard-hit nursing homes. Quebec’s coronavirus cases are starting to rise and public health officials have tracked outbreaks to house parties and a suburban Montreal bar. In Ontario, an outbreak at a nail salon forced hundreds into quarantine while British Columbia, which has reported few new deaths in recent weeks, is seeing an uptick in cases as people expand their social circles.”We did so much work to keep the number of cases down,” said Alex Magdzinski, a Montreal nurse who treated COVID patients at a nursing home. “All healthcare workers are asking (people) is to put in a minimal effort.”Magdzinski said he is seeing repeated cases of people in Canada’s second largest city abandoning social distancing measures.Quebec has made wearing masks mandatory in indoor public spaces while other Canadian cities have enacted similar bylaws.”We need only look south of the border to see how bad things could be,” said Alberta Premier Jason Kenney on Monday, as he urged residents to “remain vigilant and disciplined” after large crowds gathered in parks and at a popular lake over the weekend.Canadian provinces, most of them with right-leaning governments that normally oppose Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have been working closely with Ottawa, in a coordinated approach to the outbreak.In the US, the response has been politicized with Republican President US Donald Trump attacking opponents at the state and city level. Critics also complained the White House did a poor job of helping distribute crucial equipment.”They’ve been reckless. They moved forward too quickly,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford told reporters on Tuesday as the province gears up for its third and final stage of reopening .The two nations have banned non-essential land travel since mid-March but pressure is building on Trudeau from Canadian business leaders and US lawmakers to loosen restrictions. Polls show a large majority of Canadians, and provincial leaders, want the border to remain closed.This month, at least five incoming flights from cities in Florida, Texas and North Carolina had passengers with confirmed coronavirus cases aboard, according to Canadian government data.”Don’t get me wrong,” said Ford. “I love the Americans. I don’t want them up here right now.” Topics :last_img read more

The annual event that is recognized all over the United States was held at noon where locals and visitors gathered for an hour of prayer.The theme for the year was called: “For Your Great Names Sake.” Pastor Doug Bliss presented the message of the hour stating that the not only does the community need prayer, but the entire United States.“Our nation is in great need of change. We are a divided country right now and we need God’s hand to move in our lives as a nation. We need the people of the United States to be humble, and allow God to come back into this land and bring healing to our land,” Bliss said.Bliss said in order to see change; it starts within the community through communication with families being an example of the change. There were over 6 prayers during that hour, including prayer for the military, workers of the community, fire and police, and even the media.“I pray that you would strengthen and direct the well of journalist in our community. Help those reporters stand up to injustice, to expose lies and truth, and to promote respect,” Bill Speer of Alpena News.“I feel great pride in knowing that the community can come together and pray for everybody. Not just us but military, and for the police and our government. It’s great that we can come together and give our faith and be able to do that,” Firefighter, Doug Krueger said.A flag ceremony was also held and children from the All Saints Catholic School graced the crowd with a beautiful song. Fire Chief, Bill Forbush said he was proud to see his community focused on faith, and as the Besser Chorus closed, Alpena and the rest of the nation will have ‘Hope in the Lord.”AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Alpena City Hall, National Day of PrayerContinue ReadingPrevious Residential Waste Week RemindersNext City of Alpena Parking Lot Closedlast_img read more
