Cupboard latch black privacy latch

Cupboard latch black. Our 3 inch compact cast iron cupboard privacy latch comprises a base plate which the latch pivots on. A separate latch keep is supplied. Both are made from high quality black cast iron.

The base plate for the latch measures 6 cm by 2.5 cm and the latch itself is 7 cm long. The spherical grip is 2 cm in diameter.

This decorative latch is perfect for use on any small cupboard or doors that need to close from one side. They are often used on bathroom or toilet doors. Fixing screws are included.

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.

We do have other version of Privacy latches on our site. The sizes range from our 2 Inch latch to our 5 inch latch, these being of the same design.

If you are starting a new project, these latches will compliment our range of hand forged T-Hinges/Tee hinges. These are available in many different sizes and designs to choose from; our Bean end hinges, Arrow head hinges or our Fleur de Lys  hinges.

    What beautiful latches. These are exactly what we had in mind when we started looking for some. The big chain DIY shops don’t have anything like these but even if they did they wouldn’t be of this quality. Ordering on your website was easy, with email confirmations of the order and of despatch. They look absolutely lovely on a built in cupboard in our 1930’s house. I wanted to add a photo to this review to show you and others how they look so I hope the attached link works
