Default Macsimizer drawer removal help

I can't seem to figure out how to remove the drawers on my Macsimizer, and couldn't find anything in the search here or on google .

I was able to remove the drawers on an older snap-on box by jamming a a big zip-tie along the slide to depress the tab, but this Mac box doesn't seem to work like that.


Pic of the box right after I got it:



Any help would be much appreciated!

I think you have to lift the drawers out from the slides.

I am not totally sure, I had a 1350 and that is a smaller one.

You need to take the little bolts out at the front of the drawers.

I had to pop the slides out of the drawer from the front tabs then the back ones came out. stupid ass design. pain in the ass if you have never done it.

Remove the 5/16 bolts at the front of the slide and then lift the drawer

the one I had did not have any bolts at all. the tabs on the slides were hammered flat to the drawer. it was a tech 1000 now that i think about it.
