The Oval Latch comes in pairs. It is the curvy cousin of The Latch, which is geometric and slightly smaller in scale. This Oval version, because it is somewhat wider than the original Latch, is made of soft leather instead of the thicker, stiffer leather of its cousin. The soft matte black and aubergine of the Oval are light and supple. They work best in pairs or in fours or sixes, gaining visual strength in numbers.
To use, unscrew the screws on the back and remove the backing washers from the shank. Place the closure on your piece and work the shanks of the screws gently in between the stitches of your knitwear from the front. Place the backing washers over the screw shanks on the inside of the knitwear. Screw in the screw with your fingers to secure.
To avoid losing screws or backings, place a tiny drop of clear nail polish in the threaded cylinder before securing. This will keep the closure in place while it's on the body but still allows you to unscrew it when you are ready for a change. Clean the cylinder with nail polish remover on a q-tip between uses.
