    The door catch is so strong, it needs to be, that one of the screws has pulled out from the door retaining part. There is really very little thread to begin with. Has anyone an idea how to overcome this problem? I am loath to glue the catch onto the door, as they are inclined to wear out after a year or so anyway. Alan

    Bigger screw and double sided sticky tape behind the retainer part, when the time comes to change the catch the sticky will release when the screws are out.
