Wrought Brass Adjustable Roller Catch 2 1/4" x 7/8" Face Plate and Full Lip Strike
MUCH Better than Ball Catches
I've tried a number of ball catches over the years, even the most expensive ones I could find, but they all start to have problems within a couple of years. I think that it's because the surface of the ball becomes rough over time and it starts getting caught on the spring that holds it in place. Then the ball doesn't move as well (or at all) and it takes much more force to shut the door. I've even tried lubricating the ball with grease, but nothing helps.
These roller catches are a significant improvement. Because of the way they're designed and constructed, they should roll freely for many years. I'm looking forward to frustration free closet and pantry doors!

Works Great on regular door that is mortised
I was putting heavy MDF doors on a dumb waiter I built in our house. I ordered the doors online and had them pre-drilled for door knobs. My wife wanted them to be pull type doors like a cabinet so I found these roller catches. They fit in the pre-drilled opening fine. I did have to do a little chisel work but not much for the striker plate. I liked the adjustable tension as well.
I am just a regular home owner/ do it yourselfer person and was able to get this installed.

So much better than Metal Roller Catches
This is a premium product that has a much better feel and sound when you close a door. Much less friction (the bad kind) than metal roller ball catches from Home Depot/Lowes which kept wearing out.
Now my french doors and closet doors make a much more satisfying and positive click when they close. I'm changing all of my roller catches to this style.

An Exact Match
These were just what I was looking for. Just bought a door that had the roller, but not the strike plate. Got this in the nickel finish and looks great on the new door. This was not an item I could find in Lowes or Home Depot, so thanks for carrying it. Happy hunting.
