Catch strike location made easy and dead-on

Catch strike location made easy and dead-on

When locating the catch strikes on doors, you’ll want to make sure they align with the magnets. With the magnetic catches in place, insert the strike screws in the strikes and position them on the catches, 1/16″ from the rabbet bottom, as shown. Then close the door, pressing it onto the screw tips. The screws mark the centers of the strike counterbores and pilot holes.
