Patent Number: 6,254,209

Title: Drawer slide floating bumper detent

Abstract: A floating bumper is provided for a drawer slide rear stop. The bumper has a slot for receiving a rear stop tab. The bumper slot is wider than the tab to permit slight side to side movement of the bumper when the drawer slide is fully retracted and to eliminate tension on the bumper. The rear stop tab has notches to accommodate projections formed within the bumper slot. The bumper projections fit loosely and do not engage the notches unless disengagement of the bumper from the rear stop is attempted. The peripheral edges as well as the slot edges of the bumper are chamfered.
