    Default Source simple doorknob latch

    Anyone know of a source for a door knob/lever/latch that looks like this? This example shows the lever chromed, but plain brass would be as good or better.

    Thanks for any help!

    You may have found your latch, but that looks, for all the world, like an old-school screen door latch.



    One of the challenges in designing such a latch is that typically the Main door hardware is mounted at the same height AFF as the screen door hardware, and as they share a jamb, and are usually hung from the same side of the jamb, there can be interference issues.
    Rattling the teacups.

    Lube periodically. Some internal parts might not be brass.
