Learning about latches

If you are looking to install cupboard latches on your cabinetry, whether you’re designing a new kitchen or remodeling the old, there are a few tips that you should know. Check out the video below for some handy hints about cabinet latches.

Some basic tips:

  • There are two types of latches: a turn latch and a lever or thumb latch.
  • Latches can be used on inset cabinets, whether they have a stile or not, and certain kinds of frameless cabinet doors. They can’t be used on offset cabinets.
  • Installing latches is easy, as long as you line them up carefully and have the right kind of cabinetry to accommodate them.
  • If using the latches on frameless cabinetry, or on inset doors without a stile, you need a magnetic catch to secure the doors in addition to the latch.
