45°Door catch / 45°Door catch

45°Door catch

Traditional door catch is still used widely in many
developing countries, When not latched closed,
the front part of door catch is movable and can be
bumped or scraped easily, deforming the metal and
making it unusable. The axis of rotation on the 45°
Door catch has been changed to 45°,so the movable
part of the catch naturally hangs down due to gravity
which prevents it from moving freely and getting
caught or bent. As a result, service life is extende
and safety is ensured.
