• For racks over 35″ please contact us for pricing.
• After Check Out – contact us with your Order Number and its specifications.
• 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 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.
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)
After your cabinet bottom is prepared according to the template’s area, your cabinet is ready for the racks to go in. Watch the video to see how.

Home Depot cabinets are stock cabinets that can be modified. Home Depot has CAD to help design a kitchen where the wall cabinet is above the sink
Don’t have a cabinet above a sink, and no counter space? This solution is a handyman’s best friend. Just hang it from the ceiling, above the sink!
After you have traced around the template stencil to mark the bottom cabinet ‘floor’, use a jigsaw to saw out the marked area
After you have removed the marked area, your cabinet bottom is ready to drip dry! Now mount the racks in using any of the kit’s parts that work for you
