Latch lock come in a variety of styles and types, and are probably more versatile than you might think. They’re most commonly seen on backyard fence gates, toolshed doors, and barns, but they can also be useful for other jobs, like placing at the top of door frames to prevent kids from accessing the pantry, or for securing sliding doors and gates to keep kids and pets away from a pool when unsupervised. And though these door latches won’t be appropriate as your primary security system, some can allow you to keep an extra level of security when opening the door to speak to unfamiliar visitors.

We appreciate how thick the parts of this latch are, unlike the thinner, less rugged options you might be used to seeing. It’s also covered with two layers of powder coating, which will stand up to long-term use in different weather. This look could be great for when you want to add a locking mechanism to your interior barn doors, but don’t want to ruin the styling by adding a modern lock.

Our favorite feature of this latch is the fact that it not only comes with three different sizes of screws, but also a pair of shims, allowing you to really customize the installation to your specific door. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors, including a distressed bronze option, making it simple to match the latch to your existing décor.

If you’re just looking for an option that will allow you to open the door while still having some security, this could be a great fit. The white finish makes this a good option for those with the same color doors and walls, as opposed to more industrial metallic or black options.
