    Where would you use one? Is it for French doors?

    Whatever it does it allows you to use a standard tubular latch.

    it's for double doors. French windows are one example.

    you place the keeps(in your pic)under the latch/keep of the 1s you already have.
    you have to carefully reduce the timber on the rebates so they fit correctly.
