Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GuyUnderACar Simple device when you Use it in the right spot.
I have a closet that I don't want to lock, because the kids don't get that it isn't a good idea to lock them selves in closets. The door I have is mortised for the antique skeleton key lock sets. I got the ball catch and installed it in the door casing and got dummy handles to go over the existing holes. The door might rattle, sometimes you have to push it closed. Not too unlike a "passage way" door knob.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crackerjack Everbilt Ball Catch Poor Quality
I have purchased and installed two (2) ball catches. In both cases, within a month both failed when the ball shot from the threaded barrel due to the crimped end opening. I would not recommend this product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobix Easy to install, interesting design but poor quality
I purchased the adjustable ball catch to replace the old ones from few closet doors that were not closing properly anymore. I struggled a bit to remove old ones at first, I put the new one into place but when I used for the first time the ball popped out from the casing and there was no way around fixing it other that returning it to Home Depot.
I don't recommend the product. Unfortunately there aren't many options in the store. Eventually return it and buy one that seem ok.

Purchased two of these. I needed to return both as after a few days of use the balls popped out. The problem, from what I can tell, is that the lip around the cylinder intended to hold the ball in were malformed to be too shallow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkC Works well!
My old door catchers no longer worked. These work just as well and were easy to install. My doors don't need much to stay shut so I didn't need to adjust these at all. I'm planning to buy more to replace my other catchers.
