HI,
I am looking for some good quality door latches for my 3 cabin doors. Two of the doors a 16mm thick and one 18mm thick. Anybody know a good brand?
Thanks Mark

After looking at what was available,, to me....I decided to rebuild the original 32 year old hardware...its elegance is in its simplicity...
You could consider looking at used hardware...you may find it more robust and maintainable then much of the new stuff.
