One of our soft close drawers has decided to open slightly. How do I adjust them so that it stays fully closed?

    We've tried to fix this problem without resorting to a kitchen remodel, which is what it will probably take for success. The best solution has been the magnetic child-proof closures that require a "key", which we keep on the refrigerator. The ultimate solution for us is that next time we buy a house, we're going with tried-and-true low tech because, ultimately, there's nothing really wrong with how drawers and cabinet doors closed for centuries before this "soft close" technology.

      @Ellie isn't that the way it goes when you're trying to do something simple? I hope you have it out by now and fixed.
