Button and Zipper Cabinet Plate


This brass cabinet face plate is one of the most simple and elegant we have come across. It's called a "button and zipper" plate, as the two rings resemble buttons on a fancy suit, and the bolt is held permanently in place to lock and unlock the cabinet like a zipper.

When installing this piece note that the two vertical clasps that hold the sliding bolt in place have different size notches underneath; one keeps the bolt from escaping and one lets it slide back and forth. It's an ingenious and practical way to keep the slide bolt from ever getting lost.
