French door latch – To maintain the privacy of this room we will place a decorative latch on the inner side of the door. In the market we will find this type of latch, in different finishes. Which will allow us to choose the most suitable for the decoration of the room.
French door latch installation, the latch is formed by two pieces, one that we will place in the door and another in the frame. And then we will start working at the door; Then we release the base plate of the latch, place the level on the door leaf and mark its position. Present the plate on the door leaf, at the desired height, and fix it with some screws. Next, we put the latch and the trim.
We take the door to the jamb; with the latch in the closed position, we mark its corresponding location in the frame. Since the jamb has a small relief that prevents us from correctly fixing the base plate of this latch piece, we will make a recess in the wood with a chisel. Now we can put the plate, fix it with some screws and put the trim. In this way, we will have the French door latch placed and well integrated into the decoration of our room.
