This adjustable brass catch uses friction to keep the door closed in many applications.
These KV bullet catches are well designed and fairly well made. The adjustability is in the height of the bullet.I am using these for kitchen cabinets and find that the spring strength is a bit much. I bought a softer spring from the hardware store and refitted them. The action is better now. I also found that the doors open more smoothly if you use a Dremel or similar grinder and put a slight bevel on the edge of the hole in the plate.It takes a bit of trial and error to set up a standard method for controlling all the installation dimensions, but now that I have done that, I am getting very quick and repeatable installations.The only reason I gave this four stars and not five is that two of the bullet assemblies were way over-sized. The ones that were made correctly are 0.373" in diameter. Two of them measured out at 0.392". So pretty much unusable unless I want to drill custom sized holes for those two.Also, the edge of the plates closest to the large hole is has an outward bulge. This was the case on every one. I cannot say it has had a big affect on how they install, but it does prevent the back edge from flushing up to the edge of the mortise.But still, I have not seen any other bullet catch system that is as good. I will buy more as needed.
Parts were perfect. You were the only supplier I could find that had what I needed.
But not entirely intuitive when you see it for the first time. I have an MIT engineering degree, so it didn't take me long to figure out how it works. A simple drawing with a few short notations on it, eg. diameter and depth of hole, and locating hints for the two parts would help the first time user.I'm using these to keep our cats from opening closet doors that have lever handles. They especially like the pantry. The adjustment feature was the key selling point.
I had a hard time finding this hardware in a small size. Everyone else only sells similar hardware in a size that facilitate securing large and thick doors. This size is perfect for hobby projects. Great Quality. I an using this hardware to latch small pigeon hole doors on a Childs play center.
The bullet catches are exactly what we had searched for while restoring an old cabinet. Actually, just this afternoon wefinished adding them to the piece. And they work perfectly!We are having a problem finding the feedback function on eBay.
