Dresser drawer slides

Still heading home from the rally. Currently in TX.

One of the bedroom drawers fails to maintain the self closing function. I can fix it by pulling the spring loaded plate forward at the end of the slide and it will hold for about a day. When it fails again the drawer will fly out.

Is there a latch or lever that I'm missing??

We have same issue, now I have small ball bearings all over the floor. Going to replace the slides when we get back to SoCal. I use a big pillow wedged at the base of bed to keep them closed for now

I think they get misaligned sometimes. I installed drawers in my master closet and used those same guides as the local stores did not have the odd size I needed. Some would do the same thing and it was in most cases because the backs were to far apart and so it would not always engage.

I'll check further when I get the rig home. It would be nice to have a solution.

I had a drawer that wouldn't stay closed so I just put a magnet latch on. Works like a charm.

Magnet latch is installed on the side-piece above the drawer rail and is attracted to a strip of steel I screwed on the inside of the drawer face.

Magnet latches are available at any hardware store for a couple of bucks.

Thereís a much better brand out there thatís more heavy duty than the ones that came on my Isata 3. I have a friend whoís a retired custom cabinet maker and he turned me on to this brand.
