Drawer slide hardware

Has anyone figured out the drawer slides used on a Wildwood? One of my drawers won't stay closed. They have some type of "detent" that engages in the last 1/4 inch of drawer travel to hold it closed. I have one that won't stay closed and I can't tell if it needs replacing or just adjusting.

Is there something like this to hold it closed?



They are adjustable.

No. They are side mounted ball bearing slides.

Issue resolved:

Problem was in the mounting, not the slides themselves.
The slide supports at the back of the cabinet are attached to a piece of plywood which is then attached to the rear of the cabinet. It was poorly attached, with only one screw on the right side, letting the back of the slides droop. I also noted that when closed the drawer face did not fit flush as the slides were not at 90 degrees as they should be. So I shifted the rear mounting plywood right 1/4 inch and attached it properly. Now the drawer fits squarely and let's the slides fully engage the retaining stop.
I will try to attach photo.

See the plywood that is hanging at an angle? It was improperly attached with only one screw on upper right. I straightened it up, shifted right slightly, then attached with three screws.

Incidently, my slides are different than the ones posted by Bob Caldwell. Mine have no adjustment. The issue with mine was that it was not fully closing which it must do to engage the detents.

Wow, shoddy workmanship who would have thunk it!



Very glad you got it worked out and thanks for the pictures and fix.

It may help someone down the road.
