Hold-In/Out vs. Lock-In/Out: Which Slide Is Best For You?

Hold-In/Out vs. Lock-In/Out: Which Slide Is Best For You?
07/10/2020

At Accuride, our designers and engineers use the latest technologies and years of industry experience to create high quality and safe telescopic and linear motion slides for our customers throughout the world, featuring advanced safety features in a number of our products. A wide variety of our slides offer a hold-in and hold-out or lock-in and lock-out capability to enhance the safety of customer applications, as well as accessibility and security. These are some of our most popular slides, having been used in a wide range of environments and industries, but what are the differences between the two? And which slide should you be using for your next project?

What is the difference between hold-in/out and lock-in/out? Slides that have a hold-in and hold-out feature use a rubber component at the back of the mechanism to hold the slide in place when not extended, requiring a firm force to open the drawer, shelf or door. Once extended, these slides are then held open by a detent that helps to ensure they will not close when in use.
