Product Description

Ball catches are generally used on doors, but can be used in other applications. The way they work is simple: on the top of the door there is a hole drilled and a spring loaded ball is installed which slightly protrudes from the top of the door. On the jamb above a strike plate is installed much like a strike plate used on a regular door, but this strike has a small indentation to fit the contour of the ball rather than a hole for the latch. As the door shuts, the spring loaded ball rests in the indentation on the strike and keeps the door closed.

Packed in individual poly bag. Strike sold separately.
