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 Yale 91 Non-Deadlocking Hotel nightlatch is part of the Yale modern series. This nightlatch has a contemporary design with easy to use features and a simple functional aesthetic. Its modern look is suitable for a wide range of properties, however this particular variant is specifically designed for use in hotels and gueat accomodation as it can not be deadlocked or blocked from opening using the cylinder in any way. The holdback snib will allow the latch to be held in the withdrawn position but will not block it in the locked position.
Theis 60mm nightlatch can be supplied either complete with a brass cylinder and 3 keys, or without any cylinder as a case-only option.
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.
