DripDry Classic (DDC) Pull Down Racks:

•  Colors: White / Silver – Aluminum
•  Includes: All parts and pieces to mount a two – level pull – down set of racks, a template, a cutlery caddy and manual.
•  Height : 22.20″ inches (56.39 cm) minimum height is required. DripDrys can be mounted higher or lower within the cabinet, depending on the cabinet structure and preferences.
•  Depth: Rack depths are 8.58″ inches (21.79 cm) – intended for standard cabinets – depth of 11-12” inches (28 – 30.5 cm).

•  Sizes differ by width only. All sizes have the same height and depth:


· Small
Cabinet’s interior width is at least 18.5″ inches (47 cm)
* Small holds 36 plates.

  · Medium
Cabinet’s interior width is at least 22.4″ inches (57 cm)
* Medium holds 44 plates.

  · Large
Cabinet’s interior width is at least 26.2″ inches (66.5 cm)
* Large holds 52 plates.

•  Note: the widest width (due to pull-down weight restrictions) is our Large stock size. We do not manufacture pull – downs for any wider than our Large stock size.

• Preferences: All DDC sizes require the minimum height requirement (22.2” inches) (56.39 cm) for racks to completely disappear into the upper position within a cabinet. In order to lock racks into the lowered position, handles are required. Handles are 4” inches in height at each side. These handles will protrude from under the cabinet bottom ledge.
HIDDEN HANDLES If you have at least 26.2” inches (66.55 cm) interior height, you have the option to build a ledge 4” inches (10.16 cm) above your cabinet’s bottom to hide the handles. To do this, add an additional 2”  inches (5 cm) for width on both sides so the locking mechanism works and your hands have space to grasp the handles.
DDC TOP CONNECTORS can mount to the cabinet ceiling, a shelf, a vertical shelf, or ledges built in. With racks extended to the lower position, the distance from top to the underside of the drip tray is 33.8” inches (85.85 cm), or 37.8” inches (96 cm) at bottom of handles. In the lowered position, you create 22.2” inches (56.39 cm) height for large pots to dry.

Installation Instructions

The bottom of the cabinet is not attached or is removed altogether. Alternatively, a frame is cut out from an existing bottom of a cabinet. DripDry dish drying rack kits include all parts to mount the system into  any cabinet. Adjustable fasteners position the Dish Rack DripDry snug into place (as cabinets slightly vary in precise size).

How the Template Works

DripDry templates represent the exact measurements of the rectangular hole that should be cut out of a cabinet-floor. If your cabinets are completely custom made, the dish drying rack DripDry stencil represents the exact measurement for a frame to be made, with the points indicated to use the anchors that come in our kit. To use a DripDry stencil-template as a self-guiding tool, both the interior width and depth of the cabinet must be known. With these two parameters, the installer measures the interior width and depth in able to properly center the template. Note, custom cabinets have more options to place the template higher or lower depending on design. The stencil also provides a line where the installer should apply a DripDry “sealer-strip” (provided in the kit) or their own barrier strip to protect the edges of wood from humidity.

DDC20 stencil is a cut-out width of a rectangular hole to saw = 16” Inches + 9/64” (41cm)

DDC24 stencil is a cut-out width of a rectangular hole to saw = 20” Inches + 5/64” (51cm)

DDC28 stencil is a cut-out width of a rectangular hole to saw = 23” Inches +13/16” (60.5cm)
