I installed these on my kitchen cabinets to help prevent damages caused by living in California earthquake country. For the most part, these catches work pretty well for nominal quakes and have prevented my cupboards from opening. I must still excercise caution caution in opening cabinets after a quake to avoid things falling out. The only negative thing I have to say about these catches is that after repeated use, they tend to break. It seems the plastic housing held in place by a metal retaining ring on the female catch starts to crack and eventually falls out of the metal holder. But I store up on these and replace as necessary. It's a lot cheaper than buying new dishes.
