Hidden Drawer Stop

To keep a drawer from being pulled out, create a drawer stop with a 3-in. strip of 1/8-in. metal bar stock.

To keep a drawer from being pulled out, create a drawer stop with a 3-in. strip of 1/8-in. metal bar stock. Drill a 3/16-in. hole 1 in. from one end. Screw the metal strip to the back of the drawer about 1 in. from the top so it’ll swing freely. Tip the strip and slide the drawer in. The heavier end of the strip hangs down and keeps the drawer from falling out. — P. Thomas De Luca
