Cupboard door latches

Some of the latches in our 2015 38GK have broken. They are the Decorite 5838. The spring inside quits working. Has anyone found a good replacement for the door and drawer latches?

Get magnetic cabinet latches and solve the problem once and for all.

Totally agree on the magnetic. I found good strong doubles at Ace hardware that work great.

Are those magnetic latches stronger than the originals?

I believe so, but I did add extra. On the pantry mine had 2 of the cheapo plastic latches & I added 3 of magnetic latches shown, now you have to give it a tug to open.
Same with the trash can drawer, it had 1 plastic in the center & I added magnets to each corner & now almost to stout.

Elliott,

I bought a magnetic latch on Amazon that has a 10 lb pull. I plan to use it on a basement door that occasionally flies open on rough roads.
