The detent 11 is pivoted in order that when the latch bolt 3 is pro jected, the detent 11 can be swung into alinement with the latch bolt 3, with the free end of the detent i abutting the rear end of the latch bolt. The free end of the detent 11 is provided with an onttnrned apertnrecl car 13 to complement the ear 10, and the car 13 has an angularly extending flange or stop 14 to contact with the car 10 when the detent is swung into alinement with the latch bolt 3, whereby to properly limit the movement of the detent. As illustrated, the detent 11 is arranged to swing upwardly to releasing position, and downwardly to lee/lo ing position. The detent It}. can be readily raised from the corresp nding side of the part 1 to permit the latch bolt 3 to he retracted, and in order to permit the detent 11 to he raised from the opposite side of the part 1, said part is provided with an arcnate slot 16 and a ring-shaped or other suitable 18 working Within the slot 16 and secured to the detent 11. This handle 17 can be readily raised for releasing the detent 11 from the latch bolt 3.
A vertical strap 19 is secured able manner to the part 2 and has an offset 20 providing a keeper for receiving the end of-the latch when it'is projected, in order to latch the parts 1 and Qtogether. To
in any snitunlatch the parts 1 and 2, the detent 11 is raised, which permits the latch bolt 3 to be retracted, and the detent Will then rest upon the rear or heel end of the latch bolt 3. As soon as the latch bolt is rojected, the detent will drop in rear thereo and hold it in projected position. A padlock 15 can be readily applied to the ears 10 and 13 for locking the latch bolt in place.
