Rustic cupboard latch black
Rustic cupboard latch black. Our 2 inch compact cast iron cupboard privacy latch comprises a base plate which the latch pivots on with a separate latch keep. Both are made from high quality black cast iron.
The hinged fixing plate for the latch measures 3 cm square and the latch itself is 5 cm long. This slots into a 1.5 cm wide latch keep. This latch is perfect for use on any small cupboard or door that needs to close from one side. These catches are often used on bathroom or toilet doors. This catch can also be used for windows. Fixing screws are included.
We have four sizes of this privacy latch. The latches range from our 2 inch through to our 5 inch. These are traditional cast iron latches. They have many uses around the home.
If you have, or are making, internal shutters, these latches make a really good fastener. Use the larger latches for this.
If you are installing a new period or rustic kitchen, these latches will make lovely catches for your cabinets.
The latches are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. If you are using them outdoors, after a period of time they will have a coating of surface rust. The surface rust is normal and will not effect the operation of the latch.
You may wish to paint these latches. To paint the latches, we recommend that you first clean them. To clean them, give them a soak in some white spirit first. A wipe with a dry cloth will then remove any remaining residues. To paint, it is advisable to use a good quality rust resistant metal paint.
We have sold these latches to set designers who have used these latches for period dressings on their film sets.
You will find other companies that sell a version of this latch. We have made our latches in different sizes which are unique to us.
