Latches

These antique and vintage cabinet latches are used for securing the door of a cabinet or piece of furniture. Some of the smaller ones were also used for window latches but I've grouped them all here since use on a cabinet is more frequent. On the flip side there are also casement window locks that make excellent cabinet latches so be sure and look under Window Sash Locks also. There are also small locks for screen doors, larger cabinets and small access doors that can be found under Rim Lock Sets.
