How to fix bathroom stalls with metal baked enamel doors and concealed latches: Includes Metpar, Mills, Knickerbocker, and General Partitions.

Posted by

So, you're in charge of maintenance and you keep receiving complaints in your email inbox about your metal baked enamel bathroom stalls. It seems that the concealed latch kit inside the door has broken and fallen either inside the door or on the ground. It probably looks something like this.

Whether you have Metpar, Mills, Accurate, General PartitionsKnickerbocker, or Bobrick bathroom stalls, you'll eventually be faced with this problem. 

In the past, you really only had two options.

The first was to purchase a new concealed latch kit with actual slider piece of the latch included. The parts themselves weren't too expensive, but that was before you tried to install them. The only way that you'll be able to install the inside slider part of the latch is to break the weld of the galvanized door, replace the part, and then re-weld the door. I can tell you from experience that this was no easy task and those parts that seemed so inexpensive suddenly more than made up for it in the time it takes you to install them.

The second was simply to order a new door. While this is a way more simple installation than the slider kit mentioned above, it's much more costly. You'd probably end up spending upwards of $100 or more for the door depending on the size and manufacturer. 

That was then.

We are so glad to have found a product that not only makes it possible to save your old baked enamel or stainless steel bathroom stall door but is also inexpensive and simple to install.

Fix - it - kits for bathroom stalls are the perfect solution for converting your old concealed latches on your metal toilet partition stall doors, to surface mounted latching system.

Each kit includes: 1 stainless steel sleeve for covering the hole left by the old concealed latch, 1 surface mounted slide latch, 1 strike and keeper, and all the necessary hardware. To top it all off it even comes with installation instructions.

These are made for all different types and manufacturers of metal bathroom stall doors so you'll need a two key pieces of info.

First, do your partitions have a rounded or square edge? 

And secondly, is the stall door that you are fixing an inswing or outswing door?

That's it. You're good to go. Consider all the complaints in your inbox deleted! Now if you could just figure out a way to stop receiving junk mail!
