Replaceable Striker Set - Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 703.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Replacement latch striker - blue Well, the part itself was fine, but as I had the older design it did not fit my bin lid, in which the striker was part of the main lid moulding. I therefore had to modify the lid to take the new 'snap-in' type of striker. I did this with a small aluminium plate secured by two machine screws and nuts. It now works fine, but not all will have the facilities to do what I did. Come on Brabantia - cant you help? Perhaps offer a modification/upgrade service? The old design is a little weak, the striker is very vulnerable, and likely to snap off at some point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective and affordable I bought the replaceable striker for my Bin top which had become defective following the breaking of the original in-built striker. I knew that it would take some adjustment with my bin being the older model but I sucessfully modified the replaceable striker and attached it to my bin top with minimal fuss. The modifications included filing down the defective striker, cutting the entire bottom half of the replaceable striker and fixing to the lid's base with super glue. Now my bin closes as it should and I have avoided replacing the entire bin top. This product is affordable and works as advertised so long as you are prepared to DIY some of the process on the older bin tops!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fixed 40l bin My 40l bin has the striker moulded into the lid, so when it broke off I initially thought that I would have to buy a new lid. However, when I saw this striker I thought I would give it a try. I managed to file off the rest of the old striker, drill/cut a small slot where the old striker was, and fit this striker into it. So far it is working fine. My only gripe is that my striker was moulded to the lid in the first place - why don't all Brabantia touch bins have replaceable strikers?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect service! After 5 years of using our garbage bin the little blue hook that keeps the lid closed broke. If you consider that the bin is opened and closed tens of times in one day the little blue hook lasted for a very long time! I searched on the web site for a replacement and found out that it was still in warenty and Barbantia send us 3 more free of charge to replace the broken one. That is excellent service, thank you very much! When I bought the garbage bin my husband teased me and said that only I could have bought a garbage bin more expensive than his shoes but now even he admits that it was very much worth it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't know about replacements It's been an on going battle with the bin lid since moving in with my boyfriend it would get bent slightly and stop closing, I seemed to be the only person in a house of 3 who had the magic touch to fix it....until one day when our always bending blue bit snapped! Last thing I wanted to do was buy a new bin so while looking at the lid with absolute sorrow I noticed the 10 year guarantee, I looked online and low and behold I could order a new blue bit for nothing! It arrived with in 3 days and there was 3(!!!!!!!!) In the packet of was over the moon!!! Now I don't need to fix the lid it and closes like a dream every time! Would most definitely buy one of your products again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but a necessary part. After a piece of polystyrene lodged itself in the lid catch and broke the catch so the lid wouldn't shut we ordered a replaceable striker. Service and delivery were fantastic as usual. My bin is at least 9 years old and still looks as good as new. I would always buy Brabantia. My rotary washing line is over 9 years old and will be moving into its 3rd home shortly its very sturdy (I have 4 children so its used all the time) and that still looks likes new too. The quality and service we have had from Barbantia is second to none and I would always recommend their products and the value for money we have had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extend the life of your bin Does exactly what the name says. The main design flaw of this bin was always the flimsy striker from the lid, which has a tendency to bend or even snap easily. Back in the day, my parents had one of these and they had a hard time finding replacements. Of course, now with a replacement striker being this cheap and easily available, this part being fragile is no longer an issue. Effectively, this remedies the only fault in what is otherwise an excellent and convenient design, and I would no longer hesitate to recommend it.
