    JB-818 Box Latch

    Beautiful latch. Best quality I have found to date. Made in USA. Installation requires meticulous care; was not easy, but result was worth my time.

    Brusso Latch

    This is the first time I have used the JB-818 Latch and I will be using them again. They worked perfectly with the TJ-818 Jig and produced a great look and feel.

    JB-818 Brass Clasp

    Posted by Ray Baird on May 28th 2020

    I purchased three of these clasps for jewelry boxes. I cut the recess into the boxes with a metal Mill Drill and a 3/16 carbide end mill. The Clasp's fit very good and work excellent, I love the click they make when closing.

    JB - 818 latch

    Posted by Edward F Rizzardi on Jan 19th 2020

    This is a beautiful accent to a hand made jewelry box. Excellent quality and dimensions allow for a perfect fit when using the Brusso mortising router template.

    Beautiful latch...easy to install

    Posted by Shane L. Edelkind on Aug 6th 2017

    The latch makes my son's laptop case look beautiful. Didn't but the routing jig and inlayed it by hand. Easy job. The only problems that I had were: a) The instructions weren't clear on what kind of adhesive would be adequate for adhering brass to wood. I guessed right...used epoxy and it worked well. b) Although the latch may be strong enough for a jewelry box, if the case-lid has any "back pressure" to it (example...over stuffed case) the latch doesn't hold very well.

    Brusso Spring Latch

    Posted by John Schluter on Sep 15th 2016

    Looks and functions perfectly. A little awkward to use on the size of the Padauk jewelry box since I can not span the distance between the box side and latch.but this was my error. The latch itself is a beautiful piece of work.

    Simple and Elegant

    Posted by Tim Stewart Sr - from Illinois on Aug 29th 2016

    After putting a lot of time in building a heirloom keepsake box for my son I found that I was in need of some sort of latch as I wasn't completely happy with the one I had. I had been so satisfied with Brusso hardware I went to your web sight and found this latch/catch I ordered it and I am sure glad I did. Very simple to install and very elegant and screamed of quality just looking at it.

    Gorgeous but tricky to install

    Posted by Unknown on May 1st 2016

    Very elegant looking and works flawlessly. Mortising for installatiion was tricky. I rough cut with a half inch straight bit on the router and finished off with carving tools. Patience paid off. It's beautiful.
