I put these catches in for doors of a built in cabinet. They are non-obtrusive and hold my doors tightly closed.

I needed to replace a rusted...
I needed to replace a rusted out ball catch on my shower stall door. The spring in the catch had disintegrated. This 11/32 inch brass catch fitted perfectly into the hole after a gentle reaming of the current hole to remove any residual debris. Now the door closes and no water on the floor.

I made a new laundry chute...
I made a new laundry chute door for in my very small bathroom, so I needed something tiny and flush. The latch does the job perfect. The tiny "click" sound it makes when it's shut lets me know it won't pop open and dent my bathroom door.

Easy install using CA glue in bottom of 7/16 holes
cabinet doors still need a stop block or strip but spring ball catch is very effective retainer

Just the right product.
I was replacing a similar latch on a piece of older furniture. This was just right. Only problem was the drill size needed. Had to wait until this latch arrived before measuring needed hole size. (7/16). Then I needed to order a short shaft bit from rockle to seat the latch. Recommed that you include the hole size needed in the latch discription.

The quality seems to be good.
The only problem I have with this product is I wish they came in larger sizes.

Brass Ball Catch
Product performed well for my application. Needing a gentle ‘hold’, I used these for a set of delicate antique French doors. I used West System epoxy to hold them in the head jamb and in the top of the doors. There is NO adjustment with these after installation, so plan carefully.
I would use these again.

I wanted an invisible closure for a hidden door in an antique desk. The ball catch is an unconventional choice, but in this case It's the perfect solution.

What is the minimum gap between the door and frame when the door is closed?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Had a very difficult trifold over/under on a preinstalled faceframe. These are clearly made of decent materials but are expensive and vary in terms of spring strength and ball protrusion, fine tuning for appropriate catch is very time consuming. Use my micrometer and though all was set - wrong. Too deep/shallow add washers and keep drilling. Set everything up to be the same and was not acceptable. Took some time to fine tune...and I mean some time, would have liked to backcharge the QC manager in India. Not for amateurs except on small projects. But..they are made of quality materials
can the tension be adjusted?
cliff b on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but the only way is by how deep you set the the ball and the catch part of the two parts. The reveal on the doors was 3/32"" so I set the catch part flush to the door and the ball part flush to the rail of the face frame.
Hi! I need to replace the ball catch in the top of one of my bathroom swinging doors.
The ball size is 17/32 inch and the brass surround for the ball is 11/16 inch. I can't find this
In your inventory online. Is this available? The item is installed into the top of the doors
And fits into a screwed in bracket into the top of my door frame.

BEST ANSWER: The rocker devices are likely too small for your purpose. I used them on a wine box lid I mace and they were ok.
Is there an option for a brown or black strike plate with ball catch?
Mark J on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I didn't see a strike plate available and just used a depression in the wood frame to hold the ball. Not perfect and it will wear over time, unfortunately.
where's the strike show?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The strike is the piece to the left in the photo. This will be installed in the cabinet opposite to the door edge you install the ball catch into.
how deep a hole for 7/16' ball catch and should it be glued in place?
