Monkey Tail Lockable Latch (Right) in Beeswax

Item No. 5029RBW
7W x 13H x 2D (cm)
Achieve a country cottage look with our delightful, handcrafted lockable Monkey Tail window latch in a soft, black beeswax finish. Handcrafted here at our Suffolk workshop, the Jim Lawrence Monkey Tail window latch is designed for casement windows and is made using traditional metal working techniques that have been passed down the generations.

This lockable window latch, supplied with a locking pin, is made from high grade steel that gives it a lovely weighty quality that feels wonderful in your hand. It has been finished in beeswax, an age-old method of dipping metal in hot beeswax to give it a rustic, black, forged iron look that would suit any cottage or period home. Pair it with our our collection of Monkey Tail window stays for a uniform look around our home.
 
Right handed latches are used where the window hinges are on the left – see our Door & Window Latch Guide.

Please Note: We do not recommend the beeswax finish for use in a humid environment, as it is harder to maintain and may rust. We feel that Matt Black is the preferable option.

Finish


Beeswax: A traditional technique used since Tudor times. The metal is heated until it darkens and then dipped in natural beeswax which gives is a lovely soft black wrought iron effect which looks fabulous in any traditional or contemporary interior. As beeswax is a natural finish that reacts with the underlying metal during the forging process, it often has a subtle, slightly mottled patina with undertones of deep grey or ochre. It is not waterproof, so will need to be rewaxed occasionally.
