Product Overview

The Kirkpatrick 1145 Thumb Latch Black Antique is of a very plain and simple design, often known as a Suffolk Latch. The handle is fixed to a backplate which is 177mm x 38mm and is curved at the top and bottom to soften the design. It is a very traditional and functional design used for internal doors, but also seen externally, on outbuildings or full height side gates.

Black Antique Finish

This thumb latch is made from malleable iron, which is particularly suitable for ironmongery because of its strength and durability, and should not be confused with cheaper cast iron products which are also available. Handmade in England, the thumb latch is finished with a quality paint process by dipping into liquid paint and then stove dried. This is followed by the black power coating process, cured by stoving. Regular wiping over with a lightly oiled cloth will remove harmful deposits which may cause corrosion.

Suffolk Latch Design

This is a classic design for thumb latches and the backplate gives the latch a substantial, solid look with a comfortable grip to the rounded handle. It is particularly suited to cottage and period properties and gives that authentic quaint look to a ledged and braced door, especially when the doors are also fitted with traditional T-hinges.
