When the door is closed, the latch is engaged. Push the knob to flush position to lock the latch. Push the knob again, to out position, to unlock the latch. The push knob assures safety and has a sleek-looking appearance.
The plastic base sits (Sold Separately) on the rear surface of the door or, for thicker doors, can be mortised/counterbored into the rear surface. The neck portion is inset into the door, up to the thin flange, so the mechanism is only 4mm proud on the door surface - just over 1/8" with the knob in the recessed position. Counterplate/strike plate mounts on side wall of cabinet.
