Not in all applications - there are some things where a break away device "breaks" before further damage is done some place else. The break away setting is above what the normal setting or value is of the item it's installed on, but will break if that setting is exceeded.
Not sure these cheap door latches need to be of a break away design. I think over time they will just break on their own.
