Over time, ordinary barrel bolts can become misaligned, especially on outdoor structures where temperature changes, wood movement or sagging hinges can cause parts to go askew. These self-aligning barrel bolts compensate for such problems (and will also forgive slight errors in installation).
The sliding strike permits up to 1/8" of travel up or down from center; as the tapered bolt contacts the strike's flared opening, it automatically pulls the strike into perfect alignment with the bolt. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the bolts are available in a 4" bolt length or a heavier-gauge 6" version.
Both are supplied with mounting screws; all components are steel with a zinc plating for rust resistance.
