Hooks

I was just noticing the mighty large collection of sweaters, jackets, coats and scarves I have collected throughout the house. Because of the freezing weather lately I always have something laying around to grab in case I start to get the shivers and it’s starting to look a little ridiculous. I never seem to take the time to go the the closet find myself a hanger or 10 and hang every one of the coats and such up (mainly because I am honestly scared of the closet. I have some not so good memories of me finding a gigantic spider that I can’t get past). So I have thought to myself, maybe I need to find a coat rack or something. Then just today, just now I saw these awesome little inventions…called…

All of these shown are hooks from Linnea. You can see all of Linnea’s Hooks here.

We don’t have to stop at Linnea! There are plenty more hooks to check out from other brands! Like for instance Emtek, Sure-Loc, Amerock, Dynasty, Omnia, and Rusticware. If you are interested in looking at all the hooks for all brands, check under the Bath hardware section and click on robe hooks. Then you can click on the categories to the left, like brands and finishes to help narrow down choices.┬áJust because it’s under the ‘bath hardware’ category, it surely doesn’t mean that’s all these small and helpful items can be used for! Put your imagination to the test!

Because I am having such a hard time with the idea of hanging up junk in the closet, I really like the idea of hooks mounted to the wall for easy hang up – for coats, jackets, purses, scarves, or whatever else, and that includes hooks for guest stuff too!

 

What Types of Ball or Roller Catches Are There?

First, what is a ball catch? A ball catch is usually used on a closet door, but you might find them in other applications sometimes. The ball catch is installed on the top of the door and installed in a hole drilled to fit. A spring loaded ball protrudes from the top of the door which holds the door closed when resting in the strike plate of the jamb above.

A roller catch has the same idea and is also mounted on the top of the door and includes a strike plate that is mounted to the door jamb above, the most noticeable difference really between the ball catch and roller catch, is that the roller catch is a spring loaded cylinder that rolls rather than a ball. Roller catches are probably a little more heavy duty and smoother working, they are also a little more expensive than ball catches. Once we go through with pictures of the different types, you will be able to see the difference between the two.

Our most common ball catch is probably the Sure-Loc Ball Catch

The Sure Loc ball catch is the most common style ball catch with it’s screw down face plate to help keep the ball catch in place. It’s also one of the least expensive.

a couple more with similar designs are:

The Emtek Ball Catch

And the Omnia Ball Catch

Both the Emtek and Omnia catches have square corner face plates like the Sure Loc ball catch, but these two are a little more expensive in price. They are both a little more heavy duty and that may be worth it to you to pay a little extra, your choice.

Be sure to check out the different finishes all 3 of these offer!

The next is really really similar to the 3 above, except it has round corner face plates rather than square. It’s comparable to the Sure-Loc Ball catch (see above), very inexpensive. The Rusticware Ball Catch:

This next one is called a Drive-In Ball Catch from Residential Essentials. This is the least expensive ball catch on the site and probably the easiest one to install, as it doesn’t require chiseling the door where the face plate can be flush with the door and screwed in because it has no face plate.

Now on to the two roller catches we carry on the site. The Linnea Roller Catch and the Emtek Roller Catch. Both are great quality catches that are a little more durable than the basic ball catches, but are a little more expensive.

Don’t forget to check out what finishes all of these offer!

Don’t know what a ball catch is?:

These little buggers a generally used on closet doors where you would use a dummy knob or lever and the latch is not used or needed. It is mounted on the top of the door inside a hole that is drilled on the top surface. A bit of a tug on the door will release the catch.
