Cabinet latches
These worked great . Was building some cabinets in my garage and was wondering what I could use to have a simple latch system to keep the doors shut. These latches work great and are well made.
Thank you

Great parts
The only thing I had a very minor problem was installation. I finally found a very small socket to install them. I worked slowly and got them put in and they work really really good.

Great Quick-Disconnect:I gave these bullet catches...
Great Quick-Disconnect:I gave these bullet catches a 5* rating for their versatility and function. I have never used then as a furniture catch. I use them in the process of my work, which is a GA. Dept. of Agriculture Fuel Inspector. One of the things we always check is the water content of fuel storage tanks. It is a chemical test performed by coating a tank "stick" with water paste which changes color in the presence of water (litmus type test). Some of the larger tanks are up to 16' deep, and a 2-pc. stick is used, because there is no way to transport a single 16' "stick" in a PU Truck. I made my own tank stick of two 7" pieces of 3/4" anodized thin wall (1/16" wall thickness) square aluminum tubing (No Sparking allowed here guys & girls). I join them together by inserting a 6" long X 5/8" X 5/8" square piece of rosewood, (extremely strong), cut to fit the inside dimension of the tubing 3" into the top piece. This is secured with polyurethane glue and two aluminum pop rivets through the tubing into the rosewood. The 3"long X 5/8 X 5/8 square rosewood extension has a 3/8" diameter bullet catch inserted and centered 1&1/2" from the end of the tubing. In the mating piece of tubing I drill four 1/4" holes on center 1&1/2" from the end of the tubing. The two pieces simply snap together when needed, and are separated by depressing the ball of the bullet catch with my thumb while pulling apart the two halves. On the other end of the top half of my stick there is a 3 rosewood plug inserted and secured with polyethylene glue and aluminum pop rivets. The plug had a 3/16 hole drilled through it and is threaded with a 6' X 1/8 diameter piece of braided nylon cord. The cord is secured to a 4 X 7/16 headless bolt with a hole drilled into one end. The end of the cord extending from the tubing is attached to a key ring acting as a stop to prevent the cord from disappearing inside the tubing. This allows me to check tanks deeper than 14' without losing my stick . The great thing about these bullet catches is their economy and durability. They come in 5-packs. I keep an eye on them, and when they get a little worn I pop one out and insert another. I join and separate my tank stick numerous times daily. In over two years of use it has never separated and caused me to lose the bottom half in a tank. I have replaced the bullet catch once. I still have three left, and the rosewood joint has never failed.

Are there 8 sets in each pack?
tom c on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes there is.
This looks like a nice solution for my cabinet needs, but I'm wondering if a "stop" is needed to keep the cabinet door from over traveling past the intended closed position of the cabinet door? Any insight would be appreciated!
Doug C on Jun 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I only used them on small boxes that had a board on which it closed into. I do not think the ones that I used would work on cabinets.
ARE THESE PARTS ROHS COMPLIANT?
Louise on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use a lot of them and am pretty sure they are compliant Louise.
