A sophisticated latch that solves the knotty problem of securely closing double cabinet doors with no center stile. No bolts or elbow catches are necessary on the left-hand door when you use this catch.
The catch is installed center-bottom or center-top (the actuating bolt is bevelled both sides to make it work right-hand or left-hand). Closing one door forces the spring bolt up into the other door, securing it, and allowing the pair to be locked together without a stile. For maximum security, you can put latches top and bottom. The library catch is made from solid brass, except for the steel spring and copper rivets. It includes a catch, strike and sub-plate. The visible portions are polished and lacquered.
