What is a thumb latch?  

A thumb latch set is normally seen in period or farmhouse situations, fitted to ledged timber internal or external doors. To open the latch, simply hold the handle and apply pressure from your thumb to push down the latch, which in turn will lift the latch bar off its keep, allowing you to open the door or gate easily. Forms of these latches can come in various shapes, and most offer a privacy chain option enabling them to be used in bathrooms.
