Wide-hole Bolt / Bolt

Wide-hole Bolt

The pole and hole is always perfectly corresponded when the bolt newly placed. However, with the passage of time, the door itself is always deform and make the pole difficult to reinsert in the hole. After we study the basic ideas of bolt, we found that the deformation in the horizontal direction will not effect the function of bolt. The direct cause of function failure is the lack of vertical space. So we extend the hole in the vertical direction, allow enough space for door deformations. Then the bolt will never fails!
