Wrought Iron Thumb Latch Sets
We have a great selection of Wrought iron thumb latch door sets.
This door closing mechanism is very simple and very effective. To allow the closing and opening of your doors, our craftsmen reproduce what we used to find in our hundred-year-old houses. With these simple vintage designs, you can install any one of our types of antique & vintage latches on your doors easily.
For hundreds of years, each village had its blacksmith that made this type of decorative but above all functional hardware. They are made for doors up to 1″3/4 thick and if your door is thicker, the wrought iron clenches can be extended via a welding workshop in your locality quite easily.
Since our antique restorers door latches are made of iron or cast iron, outdoor use will require much more rigorous maintenance than if installed inside. We recommend beeswax for the maintenance of our old wrought iron hardware. It is durable and easy to apply. You can find it at any good hardware store that has a selection of finishing products, and for cast iron items, a light brushing to take away any residue and an anti-rust aerosol varnish will work perfectly to reduce the effect of time.
