Traditionally used on a ledge and braced door, a thumb latch set is a decorative door latch with a thumb shaped lever. When the thumb shaped lever is pressed down this operates a thumb bar which passes through the door, this lifts the latch bar on the opposite side causing it to open. To preserve these beautiful colours, our beeswax products are dipped into hot beeswax. This gives a subtle, matt richness to the metal and offers excellent protection when the products are fitted internally and properly maintained. An extremely natural finish and a far softer alternative to a black powder coated finish.
From the Anvils' blacksmith thumblatches are hammered into shape from mild steel using the traditional manufacturing method of an anvil and fire. Thumblatches are usually used in conjunction with a tee hinge on traditional plank doors.
