These door dampers work great for preventing your cabinet doors from slamming. This is for a set of 10 door dampers. The installation screws are included. For best results, pre-drill a pilot hole 3/32" diameter x 1/4" depth. Also sold individually for those who want to try one out before purchasing a 10 pack.
Top Customer Reviews
Construction - Let's be clear. Polymer = Plastic. These are chromed plastic. They are also inexpensive, so this is another case of getting what you pay for. At the local big box similar items cost about $6 each, but are cast metal. These are half that at $3 each in bulk. I deducted one star for this, but these should be considered your bargain basement alternative to the higher quality metal versions.
Quality - Quality is good, though some care should be taken in the threading of the adjustment housing that screws into the back of the piston chamber. Plastic threads are easily cross threaded, so if it doesn't feel right, you need to stop twisting and realign the threading. Once you have installed the item and adjusted it, you should never have to adjust them again,so it should not be a reason for you saving $3 a cabinet door.
Installation - The housing is installed on to the cabinet first using an angled wood screw (included). After the housing is in place, the piston is installed from the back (it is keyed so you can't get it wrong) and the adjustment cap is carefully screwed on and adjusted (see notes above on Quality). I highly recommend that you drill pilot holes and not try and just use a power screwdriver to force the wood screw in. There is too much risk of misalignment and the housing is plastic. Since you are dealing with cabinets, it is a good idea to put masking tape on the drill bit at the maximum depth to prevent over drilling the hole. I used a 3/32 bit (DEWALT DW2553 3/32-Inch Hex Shank Drill Bit) to accomplish this task. For installing the screw, I recommend a low torque power screwdriver to get it most of the way in and a quality screw driver to tighten until snug. Phillips heads are used to accomplish the task.
Placement - I placed mine on the upper portion of the cabinet on the hinge side of the door. This puts the device out of the way and is where I always have seen them placed at the box stores.
Adjustment - The cap housing on the back allows you to adjust the extension length of the piston. Twist to the desired length and you are done.
Use - Once they are in, you really forget that they are there. When you close the cabinet door, the piston slows the closure of the door so it gently makes contact with the cabinet face.
Long term durability - Since I just installed them, I can not comment on how these will hold up. My opinion is that they should last at least 7 years, maybe longer, in a residential application. I will update this review if one fails.
Recommendation - For residential, normal use, I would recommend these if cost is your concern. For commercial or high use applications, I would have concerns (although these are not founded on fact or experience, just a comparison of the construction of higher cost versions). Also if money is no object, then $300 will get you a house full of metal housings. Clearly there are better constructed units out there, but expect to pay more. If this is a good deal or not will really be told over time.
So far they work like a charm.
The wife hates them because she can't slam cabinet doors when she is mad.
So I have to give you an update several months later.
I liked them so much that I ordered another set, and they are pretty impressive for what the are.
However, I am sad to say that now 2 have failed on me. The oil leaks out and they no longer cushion the door, so they are useless.
So I guess you get what you pay for. They were really cool while they lasted.
I am so upset it also took so long because now I can not return them. I wish the seller would allow me to return and stand by what they sell. So frustrated!
