Suffolk Entrance Thumblatch Sets

For use on entrance doors, these thumblatch sets are forged from heavier stock to a larger dimension than our interior latches. A generous pull allows you to grasp the handle easily, even with a gloved hand. These are complete sets that include a large latch bar, screw mount staple, and a decorative drive catch. For use on doors up to 3” thick.
(Please specify door thickness and “standard” or “reverse bevel” trim set. For deadbolt security locks see pages 7 & 52).

Hadlyme Entrance Thumblatch Set

Inspiration for this generous latch came from an original, which was forged by a well-known blacksmith in Hadlyme, CT., circa 1810. One of our blacksmiths re-created this design in both a traditional (black) finish and a whitesmithing version. For a substantial entryway this latch is historically appropriate and indicative of early work that would have been commissioned for a large home. The latch comes with an extra large latch bar, screw mount staple and footed drive catch.
(Please specify door thickness and “standard” or “reverse bevel” trim set.  For deadbolt security locks see pages 7 & 52).

Norfolk Entrance Thumblatch Set

The Norfolk thumblatch style was a design that was easily adapted to large- scale production. By the 1830’s, these were manufactured in factories by the thousands. There is, however, plenty of evidence that the earliest Norfolk latches were completely hand-wrought, just as the entrance set offered here. A lift knob on the latch bar generally characterizes Norfolk trim sets.
(Please specify door thickness and “standard” or “reverse bevel” trim set. For deadbolt security locks see pages 7 & 52).


F) 2348 Norfolk Entrance
Thumbatch Set

10” L x 2 1/4” W.
Our thumblatches and pulls are available in both a "standard" and "heavy gauge" construction. The "heavy gauge" latches are forged from thicker, wider material and are generally used on larger doors.
