This latch is sturdy enough for a gate or barn door, but interesting enough to use just about anywhere! Comes as pictured, with two handmade staples. (We recommend pre-drilling holes for these when installing.) The entire latch measures 9" in length with the finger loop coming out about 1.5". The L-shaped latch is 4", and the staples measure 1.25" x 2.25". Please note sizes are approximate and will vary slightly as each piece is a handmade original. Feel free to contact us about a custom order if you need them to be an exact size. The design for the latch is based on an antique style. The pictures are an accurate representation, but you may not get the exact one pictured due to slight differences since they are hand made. We generally make these up as they are ordered, we currently have a 2-week shipping estimate on all orders. We can also make latches that fasten the opposite way, just choose "right" in the drop down menu. We're also happy to do custom work. All our hand-forged metal work is made with a coal fire, anvil, hammers & other hand tools, just as a blacksmith would have used years ago. American made quality designed to last a lifetime and beyond! We also offer listings for this latch plus a set of handles, plus more styles of latches, handles and other hand forged metal work for sale here.
