Drawer won't stay shut (25409s)

Has anyone ran into an issue where the push latch (if that is what it is called :-)) won't keep a drawer shut? In the attached pictures, this mechanism does not seem to have enough pressure when shut to keep the drawer from opening while in transit. I have tried to take the drawer out to see if I can adjust it, but so far I have not had any luck.

If anyone has ran into the same issue, would love to hear how it was fixed or adjusted...or even what the name of this hardware piece is so I know what to google :-).

Interested to hear responses as well. Our drawers have the same issue, unlike the ones under the sink that the wife hates because she has a hard time opening them!

There is an adjustment screw on the bottom of the black square that will adjust the tension on the catch that sticks out.

We added velcro straps. Anchored them by screwing it into the wood on the back side of the "cabinet". A strip of the "hooks" on one side, and a strip of the "loops" on the other side. Close the drawer, and velcro strap all the way across the drawer front. Dont have any pics of it though. We did it on all of the drawers, after having the issue on the same drawer you have identified.

At the bottom under the drawer is the latch. Remove the factory one & replace with magnetic latch from any hardware store.

Drawer Locks

That picture looks just like my Wildwood. We keep pots and pans in that drawer, so its heavier that most. A very simple and cheap solution...I bought some "Babyloks" at the local Ace. They allow the drawer to open no more than two inches and keep it from opening any further.

Had the same issue. Bought snapping latch on Amazon. When drawer closes the latch is spring loaded and snap in place. Works great for heavy drawers.

Child Safety Cabinet Locks

Just installed a Child Safety Cabinet Lock on the drawer under our oven which had the same problem. Haven't been back on the road yet, but it looks like it should work very well.
