This latch is sturdy enough for large or heavy doors, but interesting enough to use anywhere. This two piece latch features a sliding deadbolt that fits into a hand forged plate. The sliding bolt is about 11" overall and made of 1" wide strap steel. The handle comes away from the wall about 5". The mounting plate for the bolt measures 8" wide x 4" high. The receiver plate measures 2" wide x 4" high. The bolt slides out past the plate about 4" when in the open position. It can be mounted facing right or left.

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. Although each latch is made to look like the one pictured, slight differences do occur since each is individually hand made using a coal fire, anvil, and hammers in our blacksmith shop here on our Pennsylvania farm. We're also happy to do custom work upon request. 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 have more hand forged metal work, including other latch styles as well as handles and other hardware for sale here and are always happy to discuss custom work.
PLEASE NOTE: All hand forged items are made to order and will take approximately 2 weeks to create and ship.
