Night latches are an ideal addition to provide an extra level of security to your home. A night latch sits on the inside surface of the door. While mortice door locks are installed flush inside the door, mounting a night latch to the inside of the door makes a property more secure.
When the door is closed, night latches will automatically secure the door using a bolt that connects the door to the door frame. When you need to unlock a night latch, you will need a key to open from the outside or use the knob on the inside to open the door.
Often included with a snib (button) on the internal casing, night latches allow you to leave the door unlocked when shut if you wish; this is suitable for short periods where you do not want to be unlocking and locking a door.
There are two types of basic night latches, standard and narrow. The only difference is the case's size; narrow night latches are more suitable for doors with a narrow frame. At Hiatt Hardware, all our night latches are installed with traditional rim cylinders installed on the outside of the door. We include these with all our night latches.
These night latches are available as traditional night latches, double-locking night latches and deadlocking night latches. With our best-selling night latch, the Traditional Narrow Brass Night Latch, you can add a higher level of security at home and sleep better at night as a result.
