Drive-in ball catch
So happy with this. I went to all the hardware stores in my area and didn't find the right one. The one I ordered online arrived quickly and fits right on top of my door and keeps it closed.

Mr.
I bought this ball catch for a door in my daughter's hall closet. It worked great and was easy to install.

The exact replacement part I needed
about 5 years ago we bought a hose with beautiful french doors to the home office. Somehow one of these broke and a spring was sticking up out of the top of the door. I ordered the replacement. It arrived on time and took less than 5 minute to remove the old and install the new.

Just what I needed and arrived on schedule
Replaced a sprung ball catch, and this fit perfectly using the supplied sleeve. Be careful to order the right thing... This is just the ball part that goes in the door and does not include the catch piece that mounts on the jamb.

The ball catch appears to be well made and fits perfectly. The spring seems a little light compared to my previous ones, but it works well and holds the door securely. Longevity is the only question now. I'll probably purchase again.

Worked fine. The ones I got at Lowes were returned. The plastic sleeve ensures a good tight fit. The ones at Lowes didn't have the sleeve and were not wide enough. Also, the adjustment mechanism on the one at Lowes adjusts from the bottom. What good is that when you can't reach it after installation? This is a simple adjustment at the top. No instructions so I didn't realize there was an adjustment mechanism until after installation. The Lowes adjusted with a screwdriver, with a clearly defined slot. These were hand turned adjustments.

Deltana 7/8 inch Drive-in Ball Catch
These catches are wonderful. The original ones would not stay in place and had to be adjusted weekly. These solved the problem. I ordered an extra supply.

Great quality and easy install
The hard to find Drive-In Ball Catch was the perfect replacement for the broken ones in my house. Installation was easy and I just had to make a few minor tweaks to already installed strike plates. Customer service was great and delivery fast.

7/8 Inch Drive-In Ball Catch
The ball in a closet door popped free of the retainer. Tried several hardware stores and home remedies to fix. All failed ... then found EXACTLY what was needed at Residential Essentials. Photographs were sufficently detailed to assure me that I had a match to what was installed. The price was right and delivery very prompt. Installation was a 2 minute job and it fit perfectly.

Ball Catch
Fast delivery and ball catch was a perfect fit replacement. All I had to do was replace the spring, ball, ball retainer and didn’t need to replace the ball housing. Five minute job. I couldn’t find this replacement at any of the big box retailers.

Product was exactly what I was looking for. Size was a bit large for the existing hole, but after trimming out with a dremel, the ball catch fit perfectly.

Good replacement Set
Purchased as a replacement for the 'ball-catch' for the closet doors in a newer construction. The originals had the round ball fail (pop out) and could not be repaired. This part was the direct replacement. They are easy to install and work as well as the original. You remove the old and replace with new - no mess/no fuss. One may have to perform a slight adjustment in ball height, but other than than - great direct replacement.

Works Great
Thanks for carring these Drive-in ball catches. I have been trying to find them for quit some time to replace the old ones that came with the doors. Went to many DIY stores and they did not carry them. So a quick web search and found them on your site. Thank you for being there. I'll be back when needing another hard to find door hardware item. Very Pleased.

Questions and Answers

Question Are these adjustable for how tight you want the door to close?
Asked by: Martin - 3/27/2014
Question Yes. Just turn the ball from the top. Since they have no screwdriver slot, I didn't realize they were adjustable. Fortunately, when the door wouldn't close, I was able to turn the ball at the top to decrease the height. Answer provided by:  Paul (6/7/2015)
Question What is the depth dimension fron top flat to bottom flat surface? I am pretty sure this is the same as the ones I need to replace but would like to be sure.
Asked by: Duane Dillon - 3/26/2015
Question The total height, not including the ball is 1-1/8" Answer provided by:  Josh (3/27/2015)

Question how do you replace the existing drive ball catch with the new one?
