Keeping drawers and cabinet doors closed during travel

Hello all,

Most of my drawers and cabinet doors have popped open at one point or another while traveling. Anyone have any good suggestions that work to fix this problem. Latches? Magnets? Homemade contraptions?

We installed 10lb or 15lb latches for all our 'problem' drawers and cabinets. No more surprises!!!! Easy to install and you don't have to use 'supplemental' methods

There are many styles to chose from:

Home Depot and Lowes also have them.
