Description

 

Old-style and fully functional reproduction of a thumb latch set with a working lock catch. Includes mounting screws.   The Thumb Latch features a reversible design for use of left- or right-hand doors up to 1 ½” thick.

Note: Generally used on an in-swing door so that the thumb bar is on the outside and the lock is on the inside. Can be used on an out-swing door but the thumb bar will be on the inside and the lock will be on the outside. Out-swing doors are not very common in residential construction but often used for closets.

    Nice solid tactile product compared to pressed steel alternatives. Latches reliably and with a nice click. Is a size medium. No issues with my large hands. Includes the pull handle for the other side. Includes a locking part.

    Required some work to make it fit. Some of the holes were not large enough to fit the screws and some burrs needed to be filed off. Once installed, it works well though.

    The castings are sloppy and a little on the thin side. I had to grind down a section of the rod and chisel out the top and bottom of the door hole so it would sit level through the door. The latch mechanism is too loose to sit as shown in the catalog photos; mine sits down on the handle bar. Luckily I bought a few kits because the first one wasn’t sloppy enough to entirely lay on the handle and would bind the latch in the open position. I mistakenly tried to bend the piece back but it broke. If this happens to you, ream out the lock so it hangs further out without binding rather than trying to match the catalog photo. Instructions are poorly written and printed; a schematic was so light as to be illegible so the plan on a test installation in some scrap wood first.

    Loved the latch. Instructions for installation were very difficult to follow.

    I bought three of these latches for my historic home. They came within a day or two. Super fast delivery though I didn’t pay for anything extra. They look lovely. Fit right in with the aesthetic and were easy to install. Thank you. I’ll definitely be back!

    Solid and high quality. Very pretty. The only kicker is that it’s impossible to unlock from both sides, which makes it dangerous (at least for us!) with kids and teenagers either accidentally locking themselves in or not wanting us in.

    These latches are wonderfully vintage, very well made, attractive, and they work. Perfect on the handmade doors in my log house!

    The latch is perfect. Strong material, looks and works great! But what was really crazy, we received it less than 24 hrs later. We were VERY pleasantly surprised.

    Speedy delivery. Nice product. Had to find printable instructions on a different web site as the diagram on the included instruction was to light to see.
