Drawer closer/glide not tight enough when closed

I'm not sure what the proper term is for these drawer slides, glides, tracks, or whatever they are called, but I have a problem with one of the drawers in my vanity. There are no latches to hold the drawer closed, the tension in the glide track is suppose to hold the drawer closed. Well, the one drawer has had a little more use than the others and will not stay closed when traveling. I saw one post that mentioned Rockler Soft but I'm not sure exactly what I should be looking for.

Can someone tell me the proper term for these glides that hold the drawer closed when traveling and catch the drawer when closing and gently finish closing it?

I think you are asking about "soft close" drawer slides.
See: Google

We have them in the studs and stucco house, but our RV has a different design with a detent in the slide to keep it closed.

A few of our drawers have loosened and would not stay closed, so I added magnetic cabinet door latches under the drawer bottoms...less than $1 per drawer, and works great.

But, soft close drawer slides are a great idea for RV's, so best luck.
