The Yale Night Latch

The night latch that we fit on most of our front doors is made by Yale. It’s the Yale 77 Traditional and suits all doors from Georgian, Victorian and 1930s.

The Yale 77 Traditional Night Latch has been around for decades. They’re a very simple mechanism which works well and looks great.

Satin chrome

If you’re having your furniture in a satin chrome finish we’ll fit an Era night latch. Yale don’t make a Traditional in this finish. It’s style is very simple in design so fits quite nicely on period doors. It’s also kite marked so somewhat a better security measure.

Keys

When I buy night latches and dead locks I take them to a nice man called Tom, a master locksmith, to make me spare keys. This is the best locksmiths I’ve found on my travels.

He makes sure that all the keys are the same colour but most importantly cuts them so well that I’ve never had a problem with them unlocking a lock.

Antique locks

He also refurbishes antique locks that I find in doors and even without an original key he makes me some. We can even get keys that look hundreds of years old so it’s all very authentic looking.

If you have a lock on the door that I’m going to restore just let me know that you want to keep it and let’s see what we can do. Bear in mind that you still really want a kitemarked BS 3621 certified lock. We’ll work out the best solution for your door.
