Custom tie and belt drawers look great! They give consumers that “Neiman Marcus” experience in their own home.

Richie DeMarco drawer dividers How do you currently handle those requests?

I’m guessing that your first instinct is to offer a different solution.

After your customer insists on drawer box dividers – you have few options:

Order pre-fab boxes

Spend way more time than you would like making them yourself, or

You can use the clips pictured below.

It’s a low cost and effective way to create dividers in drawers, tray dividers in pantries or shoe cubbies in a closet.

Installation is easy, drill a 5mm hole and slip the ¼” or ¾” material into the channel.

Are these clips as nice as the pre-fab boxes?

Of course not, however I’ll bet everyone wants that “Neiman Marcus” experience even those that are not willing pay for it.

I help my customers to be more successful. If you have a question about hardware, social media, or the Closet Conference in Edison, NJ please feel free to contact me at
