Just had a new summer house erected.
It has bolts on the outside that can be padlocked.
I am after a handle that can be opened from the inside & outside, does not need to be locked.
ie so if a person is inside another can gain entry & shut the door behind.
It needs to be surface mounted.
I did think of a magnet catch.
Please give me some links/ideas, thanks

rim latch

They are mostly very poor quality, used on garden sheds. If you can afford more you can get better.

You will see that many of them include a poor-quality keylock, as well as the handle or knob. You do not have to use the lock if you don't want to.

Don't get one with a snib if children may get into the building, as they can lock themselves in (like a bathroom lock).


You could also use a gate latch or a suffolk latch if you want to look bucolic.

How thick is the door?
