Forget the Screws Use Gripfill
28 Aug 2015
By
, 43 Longcross Bristol
" These would be near to useless if you tried to sewcure the striker plate using anything but the smallest #4 screw, almost impossible to get right. BUT BIG TIP Gripfill does this a treat! Try it, it's real easy dries in time and everything sits well and works as you would hope, that is if you understand that these are cheap but with a little imagination all works well and you haven't spent a packet on individual catches for 5 times the price from a DIY store. Hope this tip helps guys. "

Not the greatest
20 Aug 2010
By
, Kent
" firstly no fixings. The plate is almost impossible to get caught using normal screws you will have laying around. You will need some very low profile heads, or nails.
I used them on some long pine doors but despite catching. Didn't hold the doors closed for long.
That said, these will work well on small light doors. "

Adequate for simple jobs
17 Jun 2010
By
, Runcorn
" The plastic body is very soft and distorts easily when being screwed down - the magnets are not very strong but just about adequate for holding small cupboard doors closed. I suppose it's a case of getting what you pay for - after all they are very cheap. "

Not worth the aggravation
27 Oct 2014
By
, Macclesfield
" Having read the other reviews, I was fully aware that these catches DID NOT COME WITH THE SCREWS; I was however surprised that Screwfix don't sell them separately.
Finding them proved even more aggravating:
I went to another DIY chain, only to find that a bag of the small-headed screws cost the same, as a bag of 12 magnetic catches WITH all screws from said DIY store.
I was also annoyed to find that 2 of the catches fell apart.
In summary: cheap rubbish, don't buy.

disappointing
12 Jul 2013
By
, Medway
" I bought these catches to secure a small drop down flap in my van, they were too feeble for the job.
Despite using 3 catches, it still would not stay up,
I ended up replacing them with much larger magnetic catches from another supplier.

Not so good catches
2 Jun 2014
By
, Wiltshire
" Very weak catches, so not much good for anything other than the lightest cabinet doors. Also the shoulder from the fixing edge is only about 2mm deep, so if the door has a gap there's a good chance the receiver plate will only make good contact with one of the magnetic strips. "

A bit too cheap to be usefull
21 Jul 2011
By
, Glastonbury
" These catches are very cheap that is all you can say really.
They are not supplied with screws and when you do finally find some screws that fit the plastic casing is so soft that the screws just pass through the slots without holding properly. The magnet is very weak so you have to be absoloutely spot on aligned for it to do anything at all.
I would recomend spending a little more money on a better quality item, these are just too cheap to be usefull.
"
