Rated 4 out of 5Â by NotAVictimOfSociety Does what it is supposed to
If you cannot find a 15mm bit, a simple search will show it equates to 19/32 which is available. The hole does not have to be exactly fitting for it to work. This device, while not my first choice in furniture hardware, is simple to use if you want to hide a joint. It's perfect for securing a table/bureau top, but not for suspending weight.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LadyVader Sturdier Than I Thought
We had some cam connectors from our hamper crumble while tightening them so we needed some new ones so the hamper wouldn't fall apart. The ones I ordered seemed a lot sturdier than the cam connectors you usually get with furniture you have to assemble yourself. The only reason I gave it four stars is because they are designed a bit differently than the ones you get in a kit and they don't grab the cam screw as easily. Took a few tries to get it right. But now that they're in, they're not going to loosen, which is a significant improvement over the default ones.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by aggravated CATCH 22 for Cam Connectors
These cam connectors are very handy and used frequenctly in low-end, snap together furniture. However, for the do-it-yourselfer they are useless. Here's why. The connector only comes in one size, 15mm, and require a hole that is exactly 15mm. Standard size drill bits won't work. If the hole is slightly too big the connection is too loose. If the hole is slightly too small they wont fit. So, just buy a 15mm drill bit. just try! Nobody carries metric drill bits (even the places that sell the metric cams) and ordering the one drill bit online costs around $25. This destroys any reasonable budget for a simple project.
Unless you've got the right bit these cam connectors are useless. Home depot should either sell them in standard size or sell the right drill bit.
