Traditionally used on a ledge and braced door, a thumb latch set is a decorative door latch with a thumb shaped lever.
When the thumb shaped lever is pressed down this operates a thumb bar which passes through the door, this lifts the latch bar on the opposite side causing it to open.
Our blacksmith thumblatches are hammered into shape from mild steel using the traditional manufacturing method of an anvil and fire.
Thumblatches are usually used in conjunction with a tee hinge on traditional plank doors.
Maximum door thickness: 55mm.
Supplied with matching SS wood screws.
Our beeswax finish is the most authentic finish for steel; After forging, the colours left in the steel range from blue to deep red ochre; To preserve these beautiful colours, our beeswax products are dipped into hot beeswax; This gives a subtle, matt richness to the metal and offers excellent protection when the products are fitted internally and properly maintained; An extremely natural finish and a far softer alternative to a black powder coated finish.
