drawer creep

I have a couple kitchen drawers that want to keep coming open about 2 inches. they have the ball bearing and metal slides under the drawers and nylon glides along the bottom corners of the frame. any idea how to stop them from sliding open? thanks

Drawer Creep

Are the cabinets level?

Added this to make the post to adequate length.

sorry for the trouble. I checked the internet for solutions and one said too much weight in the rear of the drawer. I adjusted the weight and it fixed the problem. who knew? thanks

Thanks for the tip frank. I've worked on cabinets a long time and never would have thought of that.
It makes sense, if the cabinets are slightly out of level.
