Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goodreason Say Goodbye To Loud Closing Cabinet Doors!
The Liberty Soft Close Dampers are small units measuring only 1-7/8" long by 11/16" wide by 1-13/16" high, two screw holes for either left or right door installation, chrome finish, brim goes around the entire front, adjustment screw in back.
Installs in a matter of minutes by holding the damper in place, drilling a 1/4" pilot hole with a 3/32 drill, fasten with screw. Brims on the damper help keep the unit from moving when the door closes. Turn the adjustment screw to your desired closure, you're done.
The before and after difference is remarkable, from a loud banging, to barely a whimper when the door closes. Highly recommend this product.

I was skeptical about these cabinet door soft close devices, but I have to admit they work great. They are easy to install with only one small screw; I put all ten in in less than 10 minutes. And they work instantly just like the high priced soft close cabinets everyone wants now. I didn't have to adjust any of them, but I played with the adjustment screw as a test and it works well, too. The instructions say to use two for heavy doors, but my doors are pretty heavy (42" uppers) and they are way strong enough for them. This is a really cool thing someone could put in and surprise a loved one with; you know, for extra credit. They seem to be built strongly, but I'll update this review in a month or so. They don't take up much space, but they are visible and obvious when the door is open. No problem for me.
I highly recommend them.

These cabinet door soft close dampers do exactly what they should and are so easy to install. I installed the dampers on some inexpensive cabinetry in our laundry room. The doors banged when we shut them. I was just waiting for something to break. Now, no more stress and we didn't have to change our behavior. Our family still does the slamming action, but the doors close gently...and all the way!
The damper casing is all metal so I expect that it will last for the life of the cabinets!

the screw angle makes this device worthless. extremely difficult to screw! I went with the competition and found a much easier product to mount with angling the screws. total waste of money.

Makes your cabinets like new ones, with soft close feature. So easy to install one predrill hole and one screw! I can't believe the difference, with 3 children closing the doors all the time., Now I don't hear them rummaging through the cupboards and doors slamming in the morning. I was so happy with the kitchen, that I bought more and put them on the bathroom cabinets too! I want to do a happy dance!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mgreen Depends on your hinge.
Very easy to install. Make sure you predrill to keep your cabinet from cracking when you install the screw from the damper.
This product works excellent if you have the correct hinge on your cabinet. You must have cabinets that have hinges that hold the door closed(spring loaded auto closing door hinge). If it does not have the correct hinge then the door will not close.
I installed on my kitchen cabinet doors and it works perfect, even if I try to slam the door. The only problem I found is that some of the hinges were kind of worn in this 8 year old house. The cabinets that we use most kind of lost their function of holding the door closed properly as the hinges were worn out a little. I found that on those door with the worn out hinges, the door did not want to close with the damper in place. It was no problem, I just bought some new hinges for those doors(they were the cheap hinges that the cabinets came with) and all doors and dampers working perfect.
I love not hearing those doors slam anymore.
Now if they only made one that would stop the neighbors stupid dog from barking.

These installed easy enough as it was only a single pilot hole and then the screw. it took about 10 minutes to install the set.
First off, these dampeners will not close the door of your cabinet for you like others will. The spring is too stiff, even if you move the tension knob all the way out. I actually removed one of the knobs and it made no difference. as the tension knob only changes the length of the contact point and doesn't actually change the tension. For me, to close the cabinet door, I had to push the cabinet door to get it to fully close. Not that it was difficult to do so, it just go annoying after awhile. However, once closed, they will stay closed. I have medium to light weight cabinet doors.
The only thing these do is prevent the cabinet door from banging shut, but you can accomplish the same thing with felt pads. So we ended up taking them out, which only took 5 minutes to remove 10.
