This past week, I finally got two drawers installed under the bunks. I started these last fall, but the weather kind of stopped all work till this past week.

The latches are Hafele positive latch push button latches. They're very cool. I used a biscuit cutter to make a slot in the face frame for the latch bolt. I'm going to find some very thin foam rubber to put around the edge of the drawer to minimize rattling.

Will add a few photos in the next few posts....

Craig, I want to use the same latches myself.  How many did you have to buy at once?

You just couldn't freakin wait, could you??!? No! Just had to get your post in the middle of my photos! Geez!  Shocked

So, there's some photos. You happy now?  Wink

I bought 50 of them. I don't know if there's a minimum, but I think you get free shipping if the order if over either $200 or $300. Don't recall which. You have to have a company account. I can order them for you if needed. My mark-up is pretty low  Roll Eyes

They have a huge catalog of stuff. Some real interesting things. Not too many I can use on the bus, though. Maybe some nice lights I saw in there.

Brian,

   I got latch/knobs like that but in a brass color from Rocklers.
 By the looks of them I could replace the center knob with any
 other standard knob (for that something extra to match the towels Smiley )


  Craig............looks really nice

Craig, Looks Good!

Don't pay attention to Brian, he's just jealous! Wink

They look better now than when I saw them last week. At least they're installed!

I really like those latches. When I get to that stage I'll give you a holler.

Take Care,

Paul
