What is a door latch and what are the differences between the three that are offered for this product? How do I know what type of door latch to order? Thanks.
A. A door latch is the tubular "tongue" mechanism that engages the doors jamb to prevent open/closing of the door without turning the handle. For your faceplate, look at the groove cut into the edge of the door for the faceplate. If it has rounded corners, you will need a round corner latch. Similarly, square corners on your groove will need a square corner latch. If there is no groove, you need a drive-in latch that does not come with a faceplate at all.

What is the drive in latch type? How is it different from the square one?
A. The "drive-in" latch type is just the latch without the square faceplate around it. The Drive-In is only used on doors that do not have anything bored for the faceplates. If you go to the home page of Handlesets.com, go to "Learn More" on the banner, and select "Door Hardware 101", you will see pictures of the three latch types. There is also other useful information about door hardware.
