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.
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
