This latch sometime called a Privacy latch has many uses around the home. In the kitchen it will look really impressive if used to hold cupboard doors closed. On small dressers, again, it will look good. Sometimes people wish to paint these latches. If you want to do this, it is advisable to clean them down first. As the latch is small, you may find this a bit fiddly. The easiest way to prepare them for painting is to place the privacy latch in an old tub. Add some white spirit and give it a good soak for 10 minutes. A stir will remove all the residues. Dry off with some kitchen roll and you are ready to go. A good quality rust proofing metal paint in the colour of you choice will finish the job. Don’t forget to paint the screw heads.
