Ball Catch door hardware is generally used on closet doors where a latch is not used or needed. The ball catch is mounted on the top of the door recessed in a hole drilled on the top surface. A strike plate is mounted on the door jamb where the spring loaded ball will catch and hold the door closed.

Mortise locks have been used as part of door hardware systems in America since the second quarter of the eighteenth century. In these early forms, the mortise lock mechanism was combined with a pull to open the unlocked door. Eventually, pulls were replaced by knobs.
