Default Looking for a way to get the couch drawer out.

Hi! Tim and Bertie here. We are new here and just purchased a 1992 Hi-Lo. We are currently trying to clean it up and need to know how to remove the center drawer under the couch. We tried picking it up in the front (as most drawers do) but it does not disengage. Is there a lock or lever somewhere that we can't see? Anyone got any ideas? Thanks for any advice.

Great forum!! we've found some very useful information so far.

Hi and welcome! My couch doesn't have drawers under it, but if they slide out on metal tracks, look for a plastic lever inside the track on the drawer (on both sides). If you lift up or push down on that lever, it will release the drawer (if it's on tracks). You may have to lift one side and push down on the other.

Default SWelcome to the forum.

Do you have a Classic or a Towlite? Perhaps someone with the same model can answer your question.

To all of you that can't get it out: There HAS to be a way, since it was put IN. Possibly, if you remove the top part of the couch that covers the drawer, you'll see how it's assembled. I'm still betting on metal tracks though.

Just went out and looked again. There is no place to push, pull, yank, twist, unscrew on the slides to get them off. There is not even enough room on the one side for a skinny little kid to get to the slides with his hands. The only thing I found is 2 screws on the bottom of the front of the couch that may loosen the front, however getting to the back if there is screws there would take some doing. Jack they are metal tracks mounted on wood to the floor and the side of the drawer.

Yup, that looks just like ours. We have decided to give up on taking the drawer out. Thought it would be easier to put the new flooring in without it but not worth the trouble. It would be worse to break the drawer or make it unable to be used. Thanks for your help everyone! We'll be back with more questions, I'm sure.

With those type of drawer slides, there’s either a catch to release them, OR you can just pull them out.

If the pull-out type, pull drawer out till it stops, then firmly (but gently) pull some more. Don’t yank - just pull. If it’s this type, you’ll feel it start to give, then it’ll just release. There’s basically a bump the rollers have to go over to be released.
