Title: Drawer insert

Abstract: A protective insert for a drawer having a plurality of sidewalls which are interconnected by a bottom wall is comprised of a generally continuous, generally tubular frame. The frame is formed of a plurality of interconnected, generally flat panels, the number of panels corresponding to the number of sidewalls of the drawer. Each of the frame panels is sized and shaped to conform to and to engage and cover at least a portion of an interior surface of the sidewalls of a corresponding one of the drawer. A flexible liner extends between each of the panels of the frame to engage and cover at least a substantial portion of the bottom wall of the drawer. In this manner, the frame retains the liner in place within the drawer such that the combination of the liner and the frame cover and protect at least a substantial portion of the interior surfaces of the drawer. In one embodiment, the frame is adjustable to fit drawers of different sizes and the liner is a sheet of polymeric material. In another embodiment, the frame is a predetermined, fixed size and the liner is a polymeric bag, which is secured to the frame.
