The Teardrop Lock - Privacy Sliding Door Latch Lock

We developed our Teardrop Privacy Sliding Door Lock when we saw that our interior sliding doors needed a little something to hold them closed, for privacy.

The Teardrop Privacy Lock is designed for bedrooms, bathrooms, or any interior space with a sliding door. The swivel latch is installed inside the room - when the door is closed the ‘teardrop’ swivels into a slot in the door, holding it in place, for privacy. The privacy lock is ideal for small spaces where sliding doors are used or required. Black or Stainless Steel finish options are available.
