Everyone could use a helping hand. When it comes to planning an in-drawer electrical outlet, we admit-there are a lot of questions.

  • Do I specify a charging or powering outlet?
  • Which size should I specify?
  • How do I plan for an in-drawer outlet installation?
  • What are the receptacle box cutout dimensions?
  • How do I plan for electrical supply in my cabinet?
  • Where are the installation Instructions?

Lucky for you, the Docking Drawer experts have built and continue to build robust resource libraries to help make specifying an in-drawer outlet easy. In fact, we've pulled together a variety of detailed resources aimed at helping both new and existing customers make specifying an in-drawer outlet simple.

Find out more about what each library offers, at what stage of your Docking Drawer installation you might find the instructions most useful, and much more.

I Want to Install a Docking Drawer Outlet-How Do I Get Started?

We're always so excited to hear when someone is ready to move forward with specifying and installing in-drawer outlets. We have libraries dedicated specifically to specification and installation questions but don't forget- you can always call us to discuss the specifics of your particular installation. We all tend to be in good moods (having an office in California does that to people) and our team (who we hire specifically because they love talking to people) would be happy to help you choose the right outlet for your project.

Of course, if you're a bit more independent you can absolutely get to work on your own using nothing more than the resources we've pulled together two informative libraries.

The Docking Drawer Specification Library

Specification Library

The Docking Drawer Specification Library is the key to any and all the technical resources you may need in order to plan and specify an in-drawer outlet. Your first stop, this is the library you'll want to use to plan out your installation. Our most visited library, we've stuffed it full of helpful information built from questions of people just like you.

In this library, you'll find:

  • Submittal documents
  • Mounting Diagrams detailing dimensions for space planning and receptacle box cut out dimensions
  • DXF and STEP files for importing into 2D and 3D design programs
  • Specification Videos (Coming Soon)
  • And more!

What is our top resource in this library? The mounting diagrams are probably our most asked after spread in here. That's because they contain all of the details needed to plan your installation. Simply download the PDF and pass it along to your millworker, cabinet maker, general contractor, or whoever is helping you with your project. They'll take it from there.

The second most popular item in this library is definitely the submittal documents. Popular among designers and architects, these documents help professionals specify Docking Drawer into up and coming projects.

The Docking Drawer Installation Library
