No more protruding latch tongue and striker plate. No latch noise when the tongue hits the doorjamb. No need for expensive custom striker plates to accommodate wide doorjambs. With the magnetic latch, there is no visible striker plate when the door is closed, resulting in a clean door and jamb. When the door is open, there is no unsightly latch tongue protruding from the edge of the door.
The new magnetic tubular passage latch by Bonaiti of Italy represents the next step forward in door latching hardware.
