Did you ever come up with a solution to keep you drawers closed? I went through your later posts and could not find it. Am building frameless cabinets and trying to figure a guide way to secure the drawers.

Sorry, that just struck me really funny.

yup....a zipper....

On a more serious note, I ended up removing the "push-to-open" mechanism on the accuride slides and I installed the 2" round Southco plastic latches. The drawers do not open while driving anymore.

You can barely see them here in the very left side of the picture.....since there is no face frame between each drawer I put the latches on the sides of all the drawers except the top drawer, which has the latch in the usual place..the middle of the drawer.





I'll take a better picture and post it tomorrow if I can remember.

When I had my SMB and my kid was really young, I actually replaced my Southco latches with locking Southco latches just so he couldn't get into thinks like the inverter.
