  • A handsome & quality privacy spring latch designed for traditional doorknobs with a square spindle shaft. This latch may be used with solid doors, or modern pre-bored doors with the 2-1/8" hole already cut out (with the black adapter piece). The latch will accommodate both the standard & common 3/8" - 20 TPI square shaft spindles found on most old-style doorknobs, & will also work with thicker 5/16" sized spindles as well. The well-made & durable spring loaded mechanism provides a secure & smooth operation when used. The latch is designed for a privacy (locking) function on doors, with the little privacy pin that attaches to the latch. Combining function along with attractive style, these very useful tube latches will provide a welcoming addition to your doors. Great for vintage antique door knobs, or reproduction door knobs. Available in non-lacquered brass (the un-lacquered brass will patina over time), oil rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, & polished nickel finishes.
