Tilt top Table Catches date back to the 18th century. They where originally used on tea tables. When the table wasn't being used, the top was positioned upright and often moved out of the way.
Tilt top table catches are easy to use. They have a spring loaded mechanism with a thumb knob release. A smooth transition is achieved when changing table top positions between level and vertical positions. The unique design secures table top when flat. Table top is held in position by catch. When upright, catch is released.
Install: surface mount tilt top table catches to underside of table tops. Strike mounts to table pivot block or pedestal, requiring slight mortising.
Received the latches within just a few days, but will not put them in place until the tables are otherwise completed. The latches are exactly what I wanted for this project.
Perfect replacement !
I inherited an antique tilt-top table with a broken and partially missing tilt-top catch. I'm not sure how it came to be that way, but the rest of the table was in excellent shape. All I needed to complete the table was a new replacement catch. The beautiful brass catch you supplied was a perfect fit and worked excellently. Now, I can proudly display and USE my tilt-top table.
Ordered on-line. Latches arrived promptly, easy to install and look great.
Good quality latch
Once I placed the order by phone, it arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Quality was good and it was easily installed.
On a different note, your online ordering system did not allow one to add the item to the cart. After several unsuccessful attempts, I contacted your order department by phone.
