It’s all there in the name, LockLatch® is a lockable window or door latch lock. This simple, yet ingenious, home security product allows you to leave your doors and windows open but locked. The simplicity and versatility of LockLatch® means it can solve a wide range of problems around the house ranging from security right through to pet care.

The brainchild of South African inventor, Anthony Bairos, LockLatch® started out as a way for Anthony to allow ventilation and keep out sticky fingers while sailing off the coast of Venezuela. Since then the idea has grown into a practical product with global patents; a product that protects homes across South Africa, the UK and Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand.

“One of the things that really stands out about LockLatch® is the brutal simplicity of the design. The best ideas often seem obvious in hindsight, it just takes a certain type of mind to look at a problem and see the solution” says Steve Pearce, Managing Director of LockLatch Pty (Ltd). “It is also this simplicity that allows us to make LockLatch® so durable, each latch consists of three high quality composite pieces that fit together in a way that makes the whole greater than the sum of it’s parts.”

While the basic idea hasn’t changed, LockLatch® has gone through plenty of research and development to create the robust product that customers love today. The design has been refined and simplified so that it can be fitted to any door or window, regardless of what it’s made of or how it opens.

The lockable latch lock is made from C304 stainless steel making it very difficult for would-be thieves to gain access, even armed with a hacksaw. These materials are so robust, that each LockLatch® comes with a lifetime guarantee.


LockLatch® actually comes in three varieties each with a specialist purpose. The lockable latch lock is primarily a home security product that allows you to keep windows and doors open, without compromising your safety. It is also a very practical solution for keeping children safe in multi-storey homes and apartments as windows can be locked in the open position.

Then there is a slightly larger latch lock available, the PetLatch, which functions as an alternative to a dog door or cat flap. The PetLatch can be extended to as much as 24cm to let larger pets come and go as they please. And finally, there’s the MonkeyLatch, which allows an adjustable gap between 4 and 7cm and has been specifically designed to keep out primates such as monkeys and baboons.

Versatile Latch Locks


LockLatch® is a true DIY product and is very easy to install. Depending on the materials of the door or window you are attaching it to, all you will need is either a drill and a screwdriver, or a pop rivet gun. Installation takes about fifteen minutes, minimal DIY knowledge and even less elbow grease. For those who don’t know their drill from their pop rivet gun, LockLatch® provides detailed step-by-step instructions for all types of frames including wood, steel, aluminium and uPVC. Each lockable latch lock comes with the one way security screws or rivets that you require, meaning when your delivery arrives, you are immediately ready to make your home that extra bit more secure.


LockLatch® is designed so that it can be fitted to a multitude of different doors, windows or hatches in homes around the world. It doesn’t matter if your window opens vertically or horizontally; whether the door is solid wood, or an aluminium sliding door, whether you are using it to keep out opportunistic thieves or to protect your property from wind damage. LockLatch® fits your needs and your property.
