The door latch is a lock and handle all in one. It was often used to hold a cabinet door closed. It has a decorative design on the back plate and handle. The orginal spring is still attached and working. You lift the bottom of the handle and it pivots up or down and releases the hook from the cabinet. The back plate is 7/8 inches wide and 3 3/4 inches tall. The latch hook is 2 inches long.
