I am adding a drawer under our stereo and cannot find a pair of the special RV glides (slides). These keep the drawer closed during travel on the road with our 5th wheel, and are common in every RV we see. Where can I find them? These are NOT ordinary household glides as they have that little "stop" bump on the front end that keeps the drawers closed. Help! Thanks!

You might try the parts dept of a larger RV dealership. I needed the plastic piece3 that held the glides and I found them at our delership. good luck

The "bump" is found on "self-closing" or "stay close" drawer slides. And they are ordinary household slides.

http://www.rockler.com Drawer Slides and the Blum mounting sockets
http://www.wwhardware.com KV1805 Epoxy self-Closing Series You can buy the KV plastic socket at the bottom of the page ($0.63 per pair) OR Blum 230M Series Blum Mounting brackets ($1.70 per pair) are below the list of slides. While you're replacing, you might want to swap out to Full-Extension. Check to see what make your slides are... should be stamped right on the slide.

Thanks everyone for your help. Our local Home Depot did not have the right slides, and we were able to find a pair at an RV dealer after much research. We will keep your website links on hand for future needs. They are not replacement slides, but rather for a new drawer being added in our stereo cabinet.
