Go to Post (The wheels) need to be green anodized, and then assembled with yellow anodized spinners. ... and then, on the spinners, you can etch "JVN is a dweeb". That would be cool. - Andy Baker [more]

[FTC]: Is a drawer slider considered a linear slide?

I'm aware that the rules allow for linear slide systems.

Would a drawer slider be considered a linear slide system under this rule?

I ask because it's ability to telescope and double it's length is great, unlike most fixed-length linear slides.

Re: [FTC]: Is a drawer slider considered a linear slide?

This one is tough for me. However I would call it legal. Ultimately you will need to ask this on the FTC Q&A for a final standing on your question. But from my interpretation they would be.

P.S. A custom slide system isn't as hard as it sounds either.
