Quick -Latch Automatic Spring Latches work great
We live in the Pacific Northwest and are constantly reminded of the risk of earthquakes. These latches are easy to install, open and close, but very secure once closed. They have very little (<1/8") of play between open and closed. It took some getting used to to remember close them, and not yank the knob off when opening them if they're closed, though.

Used this on a dog door I made to close off the stairway to the basement. Works great!

Woodworking Experience:
Worked like a charm on solid wood doors
Tech Support was worried they wouldn't hold up on a heavy, solid wood door but a similar design from decades had already been there so we gave it a try and they work great. The hinges of the door hold the weight, they just close.

I had been looking for this...
I had been looking for this type of latch for 5 years now and was very glad to have found it. I had seen this type of hidden latch on a piece of furniture I own. It works perfectly and holds the cabinet door securely. My cat has been unable to open it as he had been able to open the previous latch I had. The latch was easily installed.

I made the cabinet with double doors about 25 years ago and used the same kind of latch. A couple of weeks ago, one of the latches would not hold any longer I and wanted the same type to replace the broken one. I searched the web and found your store and lucked out finding an exact match. Replaced the old with the new and it's working like a charm. It is an easy one to apply as well as being very practical for cabinets that are accessed when your arms are full of stuff. A simple nudge with your knee and it's opened, nudge again and it's closed.

Very satisfied at this point
This latch replaces a similar spring latch that broke easily. The metal mechanism seems much sturdier. I feel that in an earthquake it has a better chance of keeping the cabinets closed, but who knows what will actually happen! It was easier to install and the closure seems tighter and much more secure.

Good latch
These latches work well and hold even fairly heavy doors shut. I gave it only 4 stars since it wore out after 5+ years and I would have expected it to last longer.

Repaired a no handle cabinet door
I bought these to repair a no handle cabinet door, the old hardware was long gone. They worked great, no fuss. 4 stars because of the fasteners, they were almost not up to the task, o frequent problem.

Product is easy to install and pretty straight forward. Adjustments are made by moving the latch and spring roller base. Use the slotted holes before permanently attaching the base. Easy as it gets! I had three installed on my custom plantation shutters in 20 minutes and couldn't be happier. Color options would be a plus. BTW, I made my shutters using the Rockler jigs and wood. I am extremely happy with the results.

It is most similar in design to the ones I am replacing.

In the hope that it will be stronger than a magnet

Keep in mind, replies to my question should be geared to a novice carpenter. I have a tiled whirlpool surround with a removable access panel (about 12" x 18") that sits flush with the surround. I don't want an exterior handle so I bought these spring catches and a couple magnetic push latches, hoping that one style would work. When installed, I want to be able to just push on the panel and have it pop off. At Rockler, I could see there weren't instructions in the packages, but I thought I'd find them here. Do I mount it so the spring arm is fully extended when the door is in place? or does there need to be tension on the spring to keep the roller in the plastic catch? It seems in reviews of both catches, that people love them or hate them, so I'm guessing it's all about installation. Can anyone help me?
Alice P on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm one of the love them kind. You install them with the latch closed. Very little space is needed for the push, which is one reason I like them, and there's enough adjustment room in the plastic catch to adjust them once installed. And they take up very little room in the cabinet, since the latch mounts vertically on the door. I installed 5 of them a year ago, or so, and just bought more.
