Ball Catch Installation
Typically, when installing ball catches, I mount the "strike" part of the catch to the inside of the door first, see Fig. 1. (Make sure the strike is just below the top of the cabinet.)
Next, I put the ball catch on the strike and closed the door, see Fig. 2. This way, I can reach inside the cabinet and mark the pilot holes for the ball catch in exactly the right position.
