AbstractThe drawer comprises metal side walls, which define the drawer on its sides and are provided each at its bottom with an angled carrying flange for supporting a bottom plate of the drawer, wherein retaining elements which have been lanced from the carrying flanges extend into receiving recesses of the bottom plate. To permit a simple mounting of the bottom plate in the correct position and a simple machining of the bottom plate for the provision of retaining recesses in the bottom plate by a simple machining process, the retaining elements comprise two holding-down hooks, which serve to retain the bottom plate at one end face thereof and are provided in respective ones of the carrying flanges, the retaining recesses comprise a continuous groove, which extends in one end face of the bottom plate between the side edges thereof, and two inguiding surfaces are provided, which extend from the bottom surface of the bottom plate and as far as to the bottom side face of the groove and are adjoined by respective ones of the holding-down hooks, each of which is adapted to assume a final retaining position, in which a hook arm at the top of each hook extends from the inguiding surface into the groove.
