John Wright’s new Colonial Knob Latch adds to its extensive line of traditional door hardware. A careful reproduction of a circa 1840s design, our Colonial Knob Latch combines the classic style of a Suffolk thumb latch with a convenient knob.

It’s perfect for a period-authentic restoration or just adding a splash of vintage style. All latch parts are made in heavy cast iron for strength and historical accuracy and the beautiful curvilinear design is evocative of the Blake-style latches of yesteryear.

The Colonial Knob Latch features a privacy lock and reversible design for use on left- or right-hand doors .75″ to 1 ¾” thick. For long life inside or out, the finish is John Wright’s proprietary, multi-step WeatherWright™ coating system. Mounting hardware and instructions are included to allow installation by professionals and DIYers alike. The Colonial Knob Latch works with John Wright’s many existing accessories to enhance the historic look and feel of your home.

    I was missing a part. I emailed customers service and they took care of it right away. I’m still waiting on the part. Hopefully it will be here tomorrow.

    For the price I was expecting much better quality. The major pieces are fine but it ships with cheap Chinese screws that were stripped within minutes of the install. Yes I predrilled holes but I didn’t get it right on the first install and had to remove and reposition. Well that was the start of a 90 minute journey. Ultimately I used my own high quality screws that don’t quite match the unit but they are strong. It seems a shame to ship Chinese junk with such an otherwise quality product.

    I like the design very much. For the price, it should be made in the USA. Not sure where it is made.
