Inleiding

Sometimes doors don’t fit well into their frames. That’s due to the spring loaded lock not fitting well into the strike plate of the door. This can get annoying when wind blows through the house and rattles the door. The problem probably originates from the metal tab on the strike plate being bent away from the door.
