Where is the "adjustable" feature??
There is no adjustment
adjustments are made to the screws that tighten the ball bearing catch.
Theres a screw behind each bearing that you can adjust the tension it has on the clasp
There is a screw on the side
There are screws on the top and bottom of the catch. You screw them in or out to increase or decrease the tension on the catch. Hope that helps.
The tension on the spring that determines the friction to open and close the latch is adjustable by turning a set screw in or out.
Can the female half of the latch be mounted at a 45 degree angle to the male half and still be effective?
It looks like it would work. You might have to remove some material from the corner of the male portion for added clearance. Hope this helps.
I have not attempted such an installation but my strong conviction is that it would prove to be troublesome.In an ordinary installation the spring loaded balls encounter the wedges of the stud at 90 degrees--no deflecting force results. At an angle other than 90, the balls would be impelled to move in the direction of the "low side" of the wedge, placing a stress on the door or panel and its hinges and their fasteners. I'd look hard for another solution.
I'm not sure. I've got this on the boat. I'll check this weekend and let you know
I'm sorry, I understnad your question but I just don't know. I installed this 2 years ago, but my application was striaght on, like the photo online. However, my gut says it will work as you would like to use it at a 45 deg.
I tend to agree with your gut! Thanks!
does the pair represent two latches or just the male and female components?thanks, lee
The pair is two complete latch sets.
exact duplicate to the old ones.....good
Good product, exactly what we ordered. Replaced the old unit with no problems....Good job guys
