Kitchen cabinet slide out tray

The main kitchen cabinet slide out tray over the sink sometimes pushes the cabinet doors open while I'm making a turn. Has anyone come up with a creative latch to keep it in place during travel?

I haven't ever had that one pop open, but the pantry has.

I'll post the photo from my iPad.

I put the rubber bumper so the drawer hits the hinge side of the door, not the center.

All my draws had a locking latch that you really had to pull to release the latch when opening.
The pantry draws are longer and have items to make draws heavier that pulls the draw loose from its locking latch.
If they are the same locking latch as regular draws they won't work.
Will check to see what will.
Here is the latch for regular draw I believe:

Do these trays have slide runners here are a few with locks.

If there is a locking mechanism, it's not apparent to me. It seems to slide quite freely. Anybody want to educate me?

Just for clarification, it's the slide out tray in this picture:

Thanks, John. I like that idea.

"tomakat".....If you pull the drawer all the way out and look at the back two corners of the slide mechanism that is mounted to the cabinet, there should be a rubber stopper on both ends (back of cupboard). If you remove the shelf completely, you'll notice the ends of the mechanism attached to the shelf are slightly pinched closed. When you slide the drawer in, the pinched ends (in the last half inch), slide over the rubber stops and cause a positive lock.

You may be missing one or both of the rubber stops on the slide mechanism at the back of the cabinet, or may need to pinch the shelf slide a little tighter at the end of the bracket. If you don't see what I'm talking about or understand what I described, let me know and I will take a photo of what I'm talking about.

On a side note, under that sliding shelf is a good place to store your sink covers. We also store one of those thin plastic cutting boards.

When traveling, cinch all your center opening cabinet handles together with Velcro strap. They won't open for an earthquake!

Hi Don,

I think you are leading me in the right direction. There doesn't seem to be any resistance with the tray sliding forward and backwards except for the weight of the dishes. I'll take a look at the slide brackets this weekend.

If none of the above works you may want to replace your slides with these https://www.knapeandvogt.com/8400-rv...n-drawer-slide

Tom, We have the same slide out drawer as you. We installed six additional ones in our Ventana plus two more in a custom file cabinet between our recliners when we removed our second couch. We do not have issues with them coming open when traveling. The wife loves al lthe easy to get at storage even if she dows have to use a one step collapsible stool to reach some things in the bacl of these pull out drawers.
