Drawer slide question

Is there such a thing as a locking drawer slide that locks when you slide the drawer open?

I was looking through the Lee-Valley Hardware Catalog last night searching for drawer slides. While I was not specifically looking for locking slides; they have a large selection of slides. You might check their web site.

Yeah I would say that's a bit pricey. At least I know it's out there. I'll check lee valley also.

if you want the draw to lock open you can add it to the side of the draw. maybe a snug peg that pushes in and out with a stickl pad so it doesnt damage faceframe.
or is this for a client that wants an automatic locking mechanism ?

build it right or not at all

What's the application that you need them to lock when out?

Just looking for some slide out work space in a work bench. Just an area with a flat pull out drawer/board for assembly and whatever else. Trying to get the most space possible out of a bench basically.

Instead of using a drawer slide...that you would have to buy, why not make a slide out that slides on a face frame. You could make upper and lower guides on the sides for the board to be captivated while siding. The board can ride on the underside face frame. On the bottom of the board near the rear, run a shallow dado across. When you pull it out it will drop on the face frame where ever you have the dado. As a matter of fact, you could have more than one spaced out to stop the board at different distances from the cabinet. When you want to return it, just a little lift on the board will let you push it back in.
