When houses settle, doors can settle along with them, resulting in misaligned door latches. Our team can help with this issue and any other kind of problems with your doors.
When a door latch won’t catch, it is because the latch does not align with the hole in the strike plate. Sometimes you can clearly see the misalignment. Doing the alignment yourself is not very hard, all you need is the proper tools and some experience. If you find that the latch contacts the strike plate too high or too low, make sure all the door’s hinge screws are tight. If that doesn’t solve the problem, try this trick: Remove one of the screws on the jamb side of the hinge and drive in a 3-in. screw. The long screw will grab the wall framing and draw in the whole door jamb slightly. To raise the latch, do this at the top hinge. To lower the latch, do it at the bottom hinge.
If long screws don’t solve the too-high or too-low problem, remove the strike plate and enlarge its hole with a file. If the latch contacts the strike plate at the correct level but doesn’t go in far enough, or if the latch strikes more than 1/8 in. too high or too low, you’ll have to reposition the strike plate. You can move it up or down and in or out with a sharp chisel. Then hold the strike plate in place and drill new 1/16-in. holes for the screws. Install the strike plate and fill the gap in the mortise with wood filler. Remove the strike plate to paint or finish the patch.
