Use the Google search function at the top of the page and search for "Samsung Refrigerator latch" and a bunch of threads on the forum will pop up. I'm sure it's listed there.

I agree, very happy with the Sugatsune latch. I tried other solutions including using tape on the latch because I didn't want to drill into the frig but finally got frustrated enough that I did use the screws, glad I did. I placed mine in the middle of the space between the top of the handles and the top of the fridge, eye level for me at least. I use brackets and pins for the freezer section.

Wow, $20 for a latch? I suggest you look on Google or at home improvement websites. Look for "Latches."

Here's one I found in a minute or two of looking, it's $7.00.

Prime-Line Chrome Screen Door Latch and Keeper-A 103 - The Home Depot

I'm sure lots of other solutions will work at far less than $20!

Granted the latch may be a little pricey but even if your replacing the frig as a DIY project your probably looking at about $1200. before the latch. Add in the latch and your at $1207.-$1220. The Sugatsune latch is stainless to match the frig. and has visual red identifying that it is latched. I am a cheap-skate but for a few dollars difference even I think it's worth it.

I must be looking at the picture incorrectly. Is this latch drilled to the side of the doors and then also drilled to the frame? This way the doors don't open during travel? Or is it simply placed so that the refrigerator does not roll out of its frame...

I used the latch on the freezer door- locking part on door sand striker on the wood panel next to the door - well worth $20 for me - looks good and works great. The bitterness of poor quality out weighs the sweetness of price.

I noticed a bracket that were use to install the locking device. One looked like it was a ninety degree angle bracket and the locking device was attached to it the bracket. Does anyone know where they were posted?
