Hi, guys. My name's Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have in hopefully a little bit more detail, and help you make a bit better informed decision as to whether or not this is the product that you're looking for.
Today we're going to show you some nice little ball catches that we have. This particular one, there are loads of different sizes available, so we've just chosen one of these out of the stores to give our customers the opportunity to see it in the flesh and for me to try and explain it a little bit better on how it all works, etc. So it comes in two different pieces. This part will be fitted to the door perhaps and this particular part then will be fitted to the frame or vice versa. There's no real set rules in respect to that. And the idea is that when the two come together like that, it will actually then, with those ball bearings on either side, it will push in and hold that then in place like that and hold the door into its position.
One of the advantages with this as well is, as you can see here, you've got a screw on that side and if I turn him around as well, you've got a screw on that side, and you can alter the tension of the ball bearings against the latch there depending on much tension you want to be able to open and close it. So you can make those little fine adjustments in respect to that.
As I mentioned, there's loads of different sizes but this particular size, for an example, if I was to give you an [oval] there's 50 millimetres. The fixing centres there, just in case you're thinking of wanting to replace, the fixing centres there are round about 42 millimetres, and the width there is 9 millimetres, and then the actual plate then itself, which would fit to the door or the frame, is about 29 millimetres. Again, 9 millimetres and the fixing centre there, I'm going to say that's about 20 millimetres there.
Now it doesn't come with fixing screws. You need to choose the fixing screws depending on the application that you plan on fitting it to. But we do have a whole myriad of range of different types of screws that are available on our site. It obviously takes a countersunk screw.
If you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have, or simply give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our cherished customers. So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and we'll hopefully catch up with you real soon. Take care. Bye-bye.
