This was a replacement for a latch in a beautiful teak dresser. Took 5 minutes to replace it and it works perfectly. So glad it was still available.

They identified the right part from a photo of the broken piece the first time. The part was exactly what I needed.

What? A Sewing Machine?
I am building a rather elaborate sewing cabinet. The machine will be lowered into the cabinet when not in use by pressing down on it with enough force to overcome the lift of two gas springs. I needed a means of locking the machine carrier in the down position without manipulating a separate latching mechanism. These catches fill the bill and are strong enough to perform that task. When desiring to sew, simply press down on the machine, the latches will unlock and the machine will rise to its working position.

Replacement latch
I was replacing a latch on a 25year old cabinet and was pleasantly surprised to find the Rockler had an identical replacement. The latch works great.

These are great looking, hight quality, budget-priced latches. They are easy to install.I used them on a built in cabinet. The cabinet frame is twisted, so there was a 1/4 inch gap at the top when the door is closed. These latches allow the door to be pressed to a fully closed position and they hold it there.A nice feature is that you push the door and it pops open (the latch pushes it open), so knobs and pulls are optional.I'll definitely be using more of these in the future.

These latches are great! I use...
These latches are great! I use them below my kitchen sink to keep my dog from getting into the trash. These are high use doors that are opened and closed 10-20 times per day and I haven't had a single problem in the two years since they've been installed. In contrast, I've tried several others that broke within a few months. Since I live in earthquake territory, I'm going to install them throughout my house in the near future.

I volunteer in a charity resale shop. This is to fix a donated armoire's right door. The left door latch works perfectly. I tried to fix this right latch but couldn't.
It matches the latch on my dresser which was broken by movers recently.

My home office project is completing. Shutters are being made for the two windows. The shutters will be hinged across the top with the bottom of the shutter lifting up towards the ceiling with these catches will hold it out of the way and make for a clear & unobstructed view from my home office windows.

I inherited my father's oak desk which contains several secret places, one of which needs this type of latch to push open the door. I am hoping this item is the correct size & type of latch.

How is the latch installed?
Diane H on Oct 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The roller is secured to a shelf inside the cabinet while the latch is screwed to the inside of the cabinet door.
What are the exact dimensions of the plastic brown strike? I need to replace that piece and am hoping this will fit my existing latch. Thank you
