Are linear guides easy to install?

You are here:

In the installation instructions for a lubricated linear guide with ball circulation, the following aspects, among  others, need to be considered by me: Installation and maintenance only by specialist personnel – Suitable lifting equipment is to be used – Avoidance of dirt during installation; which leads to questions: How can dirt be removed (benzene or petroleum?) – Do I have suitable technical training? – Have I read and understood the installation instructions completely?

I wanted to use a linear guide that does not require all these questions to be answered. And there is one: modern alternative linear guides – that do not need any questions to be answered and are characterised by extremely simple handling.
