after installation I could not get the door plates to lay flat against the ribbed portion of the door, I had talked with the supplier about the problem but never came up with a solution to the problem, I thought maybe the door plates were not formed properly and was going to order another set but I did not want to spend any more money on them so I tweaked them to fit better not perfect but ok for now otherwise when the door is closed they latch up perfectly, you don't have to slam these doors Merv on 4th Mar 2016
These door latches were so easy to install I had them done in less than an hour. They fit great and the doors latch shut with just one finger. They open just as nice. Much safer than the old style latches and they work great with remote door locks. Don't waste your money on restoring the original latches. Upgrade to these, you won't regret it.
