A thumblatch handle hand forged in the traditional blacksmith fashion. When the thumb latch is depressed this raises the latch bar from its keep allowing the gate to open. The rustic old fashioned styling is more suitable for period properties. The Beeswax finish is the simple, age-old combination of hand forged fired metal finished with wax. The product will acquire its own unique patina over years of use. Comes with a 10 year mechanical guarantee. Suitable for domestic use.
