Nightlatches are a common locking product found mainly on residential front doors. They ordinarily feature a single sprung latch locking point which engages automatically when the door is shut, securing the property.
This TSS 6 Pin Traditional nightlatch represents a cost effective soltion for applications requireing a conventional lock and standard level of security. The deisgn reflects that of the most popular nightlatches on the market and the classic look compliments properties with a tradtional look such as Victorian or Georgian homes.
When ordering, you have the option of purchasing the nightlatch supplied with a 6 pin rim cylinder and 3 keys, or just buying the case only which comes supplied with no cylinder. The case only version is also available with the bolt reversed. This is ideal for properties with outward opening doors.
This nightlatch features a means of mechanical holdback which allows the sprung latch bolt to be physically retained within the body of the nightlatch. When this feature is activated, the latch will not engage when the door closes, therefore the door will not be secured. It is important to consider if this is a feature that is desirable for the application in question as in some circumstances the possibility of the door not being secured may cause issues. Also, some mechanical holdback devices also allow the latch to be secured in the locked position preventing access even when a key is used from outside deadlocking the door. It should also be considered if this is suitable for the application.
