Fix jack knife storage drawer?


I have a jack knife sofa with a storage drawer underneath but it doesn't latch to anything to stay closed. It has a black plastic pull but it isn't connected to anything inside or under the drawer. I plan to secure my dog to the sofa during traveling but don't want the drawer swinging out and he falls into it then have it close on him.

Does anyone know what cable and latch, if any, is used to lock the drawer closed?

Ours just has a metal upside down "L" shaped piece that the drawer latch hooks into. We found the key keeping it from coming open was not to put too much weight in there.

Doesn't solve the latch problem, but you can get harnesses and an extension about 1.5' long that "buckle" into the seat buckle on the couch to put your pet into. Makes it safer for the pooch as well.

I put baby latches on my drawers/doors to keep them closed. Home Depot, just make sure you get the ones that you can fold in when you get to your destination.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I got some pics of the inside of the drawer. The pull outside slides up and down and moves this metal round knob up and down inside the drawer but there's nothing it attaches to or anything underneath it could grab onto.
