OK - that wasn't so bad now was it...

So the door now closes and latches nicely. Here is where the flat black rectangular piece may come in. With the door closed does it have play in it... If so, the flat black piece is designed to stop that. It gets installed on the inside of the cabinet on the the aluminum post or cabinet edge. If it was there before there should already be holes where it was installed with rivets.

Good luck - once you do one it will seem like a piece of cake...

Jim & Mitzi - Janie Q - did you get your latches installed?

I hate unresolved threads - sorry - a little OCD that way... ;-)

Finally conquered situation....Put on my McGiver hat and used pan head screws , kind of a self taping type, will add a pic if I can , 2 small washers and attached the 3 inside of door parts properly assembled to the door and then installed the brown outside parts.....D O N E finally What a relief. Still think instructions should be included with the package when purchased Andy....Too many variations as to how the inside of door black and white part can be put together. I have ruined 3 inside part sets in 2 years of ocassional attempts. Many thanx to all that participated in resolving tyhis simple problem. Jim & Mitzi

Is there any more info or video on how to do these latches? I feel like a moron. I've replaced axles and the subfloor but this latch is kicking my back end. I can't figure out how the spring goes and now I have two black assemblies snapped together incorrectly and can't seem to get them back apart. Ugh.
