Replaceable Striker Set - Blue is rated 4.7276 out of 5 by 514.
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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A known weakness in bin closing mechanisms The Brabantia tall bin is a fine bin but has a weakness in its closing mechanism. The striker pin is prone to damage as you put stuff into the bin, weakens from bending failure and eventually snaps off. Babantia know this and have changed from an integral moulding to a replaceable blue pin. However this still bends and fails eventually. This has happened to all our examples of this bin. Brabantia provide the replacement part, free of charge, and the replacement technique is easy but the bin is out of use for about ten days. The locking mechanism comes as a spare with the new bin, but the striker pin does not. Why not? This is a weakness well-known to the company. These are the best bins; why not supply the necessary spares or re-design the lid with a metal striker pin?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Service My 50L kitchen bin is nearly 10 years old and still looks great today. About 2013, the molded lid peg snapped so Brabantia sent me a free replacement. Two years later, the removable in broke so I come back to Brabantia for a replacement part. Free of charge, free delivery and they send me three (3) replacements. You can't buy a better product that's guaranteed to this extent anywhere. Thank you Brabantia, I'll never buy anything that you guys sell from anywhere but you guys. Sterling service indeed.
