Tip -- Keeping drawers from falling out.

Ever had the terrible experience of pulling that drawer out beyond the runners and having it swing down dropping all the contents onto the floor. That's not too bad with some clothes, but the kitchen silverware?

Paul from Kitchener, Ontario sent in an idea for blocking the drawer from coming all the way out.

Simply screw a small stick of wood to the back of the drawer. The screw is off centre so that the stick will swing down, with the short top end going up enough to catch the front of the drawer frame.

To pull the drawer all the way out, simply reach in and rotate the stick to the horizontal position and the drawer will now slide all the way out.
