Our Teardrop privacy lock for sliding barn doors are designed for interior applications where privacy is desired. Especially suited for bedrooms and bathrooms.
Latch can be mounted onto to the interior room jamb or onto the door. Teardrop shape is designed to be easily unlocked from the outside in a emergency with just a credit card or any long flat item/tool long enough to reach the latch (depends on how much of the door overlaps the door frame when mounted on interior jamb).
Available in three finishes: brushed stainless steel, bronze, or matte black.
May also be used on a pocket door (note that a 1/8" diameter through-hole must be drilled behind the strike plate so that a wire or paper clip can be used to release the lock in an emergency if installed on a pocket door).
