The JB-828 brass latch is mortised into the lid and front of a box or case up to the edge of the cove molding. The spring-loaded pivoting bar releases the latch when the button is pressed. It measures 2" x 3/4" x 3/8". Routing template TJ-828 and installation instructions are available.
Beautiful latch for my project. High quality brass. Would look great in my project but size was to big. I returned for credit after I bought the JB-818 a smaller version.
Como todos los productos Brusso, rozando la perfección
I bought this latch and the template for installing it for a jewelry box I'm making. This was the first time I've used these products, so I did a few test installations on scrap wood. Each time the latch fit perfectly. I routed the mortise on the box, and installed the latch with epoxy. The fit is extremely accurate, and the latch is a clean, attractive addition to the overall look of the box.
This catch is absolutely beautiful. It gives your project a elegant finished look. The only thing I think that might improve this is if Brusso were to package in a pull or knob of some sort with this catch as you do need to install something. Although even as is it is a beautiful addition to any project. Tim from Illinois
This latch adds a lot of character to a box. Note however, that you still need a way to lift the lid once the catch is released. Also, I think it works and looks better with the button side on top, although nothing in the instructions on this.
