Attach a 15" x 1/2"quarter-round

drawer front using glue or screws.

Bottles or cans not placed in the center may become caught
between the ram and the drawer. The Drawer Monitor Switch

The compacting
ram is the part of the compactor
which
compresses the trash. The compacting
ram does not go to the
bottom of the drawer. You will not see compacting
of trash the
first few times you load the compactor.
NOTE: The compactor
drawer should be more than 1/2 full before
the compactor
can begin to compress the load.
You may hear a noise when glass breaks. Strong glass bottles
may not break at all. The trash in a full compactor
bag will be
about 1/4 the size of its original bulk.
