Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NWMimi Should have done this LONG ago!
Picked up this roller catch at the local Home Depot and had been holding it because I couldn't figure out how to install it. The clerk had recommended it as a solution to keep my double bin recycle cabinet door from rolling out all the time. I thought it would do the job but I'm no carpenter so I couldn't wrap my head around how it should be installed.
Enter the handyman I recently hired. He thought it would work too and in less than 5 minutes, my recycle cabinet door was perfectly upgraded!
I can't tell you how nice it is for such an inexpensive item to fix a long-standing irritation. Would I have died without having the catch installed? No. But I smile every time it gently secures the door front to the cabinet box -- job well done! Guess I'm easily entertained! :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP88 Great design!
The house we recently bought has kitchen cabinets from the 60's and these fit perfectly for the ones that required repair. Took 5-10 minutes to install each. Luckily I only had to replace 4 and was done within 30 minutes. So nice to have cabinets that actually stays shut....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mindless06795 Pretty Good/Screws could be better
These actually work pretty well. Screws are not easily self tappable, but drill a small pilot hole and they work well. If you position catch correctly, they work as they are supposed to.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joejoe Low quality
It's low quality. Can't complain because it's less than $1.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Victor Good quality and nice result
The produce itself is in good quality, and it functions well after installation. But a little bit hard to install

My experience was similar to the other reviewer who broke the screws trying to install this roller catch. I was replacing a broken one on an antique oak buffet. I'd even drilled 1 1/16" pilot holes, and was using the correct size (small) Phillips screwdriver, yet the head twisted off the first screw I used before it got tight. What's worse, now I have to reposition the next catch I end up using since the broken screw is stuck in the hole. Guess I'll try finding period-correct catches on some antique restoration website. The old original roller catch from the 1940s was much beefier, including the screws, than this imported junk.

I used these on my wood executive computer desk..... My desk has a large center draw you pull out , then flip the front of the draw down to use the keyboard and mouse..... i have had the desk for a good 15 years and alot of use.... the catches for the drawer face are some fancy brass mini spear mount latches..... finally wore out.... I was able to mount these new latches on the inside of the draw opposite of the old ones.... left the old ones on, mounted these and good to go..... I used a sharp center punch for pilot holes and the screws went right in with a fresh no,2 Phillips manual screw driver.... if you need to install alot of these, then I would get screws that grip the bit a bit better if you use an electric drill/screw driver.... screws are fine that come with it if you make pilot holes and twist in by hand....
