Norfolk Latch Iron Matt Black H195 x L170 x W43mm
The Suffolk and Norfolk Latch were invented by the architect William Twopeny (1797-1873). Also known as a thumb latch, the Norfolk Latch is a very simple latch that is often used on gates and external doors. It can also be used internally on Cottage style doors (ledged and braced). Originally Norfolk latches were hand made but with the advent of the industrial age they became a mass produced item.
As this is a only a latch, for external doors a secure lock should also be added.
