Best Drawer Locks?

What is best way to ensure your drawers do not open if they are heavily loaded and your are on winding mountain roads? These have the cheap drawer slides that can come if overstressed. I'd like not to have to replace all of them as it is time consuming..

We have had good luck with using self closing drawer slides. Plus they take the hassle out of daily use. Bit of a chore to install but the payback is continuous.

If you require anything stronger than that it is time to slow down. LOL

I replaced all my drawer slides with full extension slides and installed a key lock on each drawer. The looks are similar to locks used on filing drawers or cabinet doors and are all keyed alike. You can get them at big box stores if you check the key numbers as you purchase. Rockler has them also, but about 2.5 times the price of the big box store.
