Catalog History
all door latch assemblies on the market today are not equal. Please take a look at Sy's detailed explanation of the differences.
Note that we only sell the correct ones and tap the screw holes here so they too are correct. If you are having difficulty aligning a latch the dovetail may be installed incorrectly, give us a call for help.

Avoid using oil to lube parts like this, use graphite, mix graphite with a little sewing machine oil so it will get down into the mechanisms, the oil will evaporate over a little time. You do not want to use petroleum type oil as it will collect fine dust and speed up wear and tear on the moving parts.

Trouble with this item opening the door is sometimes the adjustment on the outside door handle plunger bolt.
It is adjusted by removing the door handle, un-screwing or tightening the bolt by adjusting the nut. Longer will open the latch a little quicker and farther, shorter will let the door latch if it is not engaging.

Lefts are gold in color, rights are silver.

Note this was originally a slotted screw, in most (not all) cases, but since we do not sell slotted screws when possible (because Sy considers them a paint scratching nuisance) they are all now Phillips head.
