For a utility cart I’m going to build some drawers with oversized bottoms that ride in Dadoes in the sides of the cabinet.

It’s much more economical to build drawers this way compared to slides.

When I’ve made these just for myself I haven’t worried about pulling them out of the case unintentionally because I know they aren’t held in as drawers on slides are.

But now I find myself wanting to come up with a way to stop the drawer so that no one yanks it out accidentally. What could works?

You don’t say what your drawer or case construction is so I’ll just trough the out to get the ball rolling.

Did you think the #4×3/8 fat head screw was the right for that application?
