Q: I just bought the Trofast storage system from IKEA, the kind that has the runners -- not the grooves-- along the interiors. The tubs don't slide easily on the runners. Okay, that's an understatement. The entire unit moves a few inches from the force of my exertion every time I try and remove or replace a tub! Does anyone have a tip for how to jerry-rig the runners so the tubs slide in and out more easily, i.e. easily enough for a toddler to maneuver?

Editor: We haven't seen the Trofast version with the runners (and couldn't find a photo on Ikea's site), but we hope one of our readers owns it and has advice for you...anyone?
