Update Feb, 2014: Two units that I installed on my most heavily used cabinets have begun to fail. They still slow the door, but are allowing more of a slam. Adjusting helps a bit, but I expect I'll need to replace eventually.
The front of these dampers have a little lip that allows for proper positioning but which also adds stability once installed and prevents the damper from rotating. Please note that there is only one screw that holds the damper in place and that without this little lip, the damper would most certainly move about on it's axis.
I also need to point out that there is a certain percentage of these dampers that simply fail. Once a damper has been screwed in, you need to snake it together to hide the screw and also put it into the proper position to work. Once in a while, you will find a damper where the clamp that holds it all together is a bit weak, resulting in the damper becoming separated. While you can simply snap it back into place, it is almost guaranteed that you will experience the same kind of failure again. Once the clamp is weak, it stays weak.
I have found that installing a damper and later on opening it up (unsnapping it) will essentially weaken the clamp. Thus, I try to avoid doing so.
While I have certainly tried to squeeze the little clamping mechanism with a pair of pliers to make the snap connection more secure, I have not been able to do so successfully. In other words, once a damper fails in this way, it is basically trash. Thus, I advise you to purchase a few extra, just in case.
In the four years in which I have owned these dampers, I have had three fail over time. Two were useless out of the box - this is out of a total of about 50 that I have ordered over the years.
Overall, great solution for a common problem but wish they were made better.
