The Latch Leather Closure
Made in the USA
2 per package
2.5" wide x .5" tall
This pair of closures is the 3rd generation of a series of innovative and unique closures that screw into both sides of a garment or accessory and snap in the center making them versatile and (re)moveable.
The Latch, small and simple, evoking the rustic and homey hinge on a barn door, gains its visual power in numbers. Imagine 8 of them adorning the opening of a military-style cardigan, creating shaping at the waist and closing a split cuff.
For ideas on how to use the Latch on simple garments, take a look at Bayron Handmade's amazing CardiZen, that uses the Latch to style this classic kimono style cardigan in multiple ways:
INSTRUCTIONS for using the Latch:
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.
