Rated 2 out of 5Â by Reviewer1a Cabinet catches
A lot smaller than I first anticipated - good feature is the ability to increase pressure of ball bearing for closure.
Bought these to see if they would stop our child from opening kitchen cabinets - still to fit at this time.
One of the items has been misaligned and drilled off square meaning one of the 10 items is useless.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Kevin79 forget about it
The are badly designed - there is no way to adjust them and must be aligned precisely as previously mentioned.
In addition, they are poor quality - the pack I had contained bad chrome plating and some had sharp unfinished edges.
Finally the screws don't seem to tap properly (maybe this was just me), and the slot is ridiculously shallow making driving into harder wood extremely difficult.
Seriously - avoid these!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by ModerateDIYer Very Fiddly Catches
Nicely constructed but very small and requires absolute precision in lining up the male and female halves: no slotted screw holes to allow positional adjustment. I gave up and used roller catches instead - much more forgiving, and cheaper too.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jibjob79 Excellent little catch
Very imprtessed with these little catches. I broke my loft hatch latch and need something just to hold the hatch flush against the ceiling. The catch will hold in line or at 90 degrees to each other and the adjustable screws which push the ball bearings together can be tweeked to provide as much or as little grip as you need. Excellent value and going to use the rest to make a box to hide exposed plumbing work that has to be built into place but might need removing in case of water leaks, they hold fast and tight.
