The purpose of a door latch is to hold doors, windows, cabinets or shutters in a closed position. The design allows the door, cabinet or shutter to be secured on one side and easily unlatched when required. Slide bolt latches are a great solution for interior saloon doors and outdoor gates. Slide bolt latches can be locked and unlocked from one side only. This is a fairly common latch type.
The bolt slides into the lock of the latch thus engaging the slide bolt latch. The slide latch allows for the small gap in the middle that normal swinging doors or gates have. The slide bolt latch can be engaged from one side only but can be placed at the top so it can be reached from either side.
John Wright products are durable for an harsh outdoor environment with their "Weatherwright" coating. These slide bolts also have an anti-rattle spring that prevents the bolt from making noise in the wind.
