Can you explain what is meant by "hold-in detent"?

Author: John Whittlesea, Technical support manager

Our detent hold-in feature is fitted to many of our slide series and is simply a deflare bend on the end of the drawer member. When the slide is closed, this passes over a corresponding shape in a moulding fitted to the cabinet member.

This gives a small amount of friction to stop the slide from opening on its own. The user will have to use a small pull force to open the drawer; between approximately 5N and 7N.

This feature is fine on static applications and some mobile applications, but if a unit is moved around with some force, then gravity or a centrifugal force could pull the drawer open over the hold-in force.
