Whats the best way to secure drawers and doors so they don't fly open while underway?

    These have a couple of parts, but again are simple.

    It would nice to employ some stylish hinges too.

    The simplest of all latches, that work on drawers too.

    I think the Kansas City Chiefs stole the Broncos uniforms and took their place. :p

    Do you make any of those, Paul, or do you buy them ready make? The twist knob is a nice little device.

    Seattle did just what they needed to, pressure Manning (and everyone else it would seem).

    I've made dozens of catches, handles, latches and drawer pulls over the years. Being clever and creative is the hallmark of every good builder I've known. Blatantly stealing other peoples ideas, when they solve a problem or are just plain elegant, is just as important. When you sober up, go steal an idea or something, it'll make you feel better.
