This is a handy device for use as a privacy lock on pocket or sliding doors that do not have a lock installed. This pocket door jamb bolt is designed to be face mounted at the rear of a closed pocket door, acts as a privacy bolt to prevent door from opening. It works like a rocker switch. When pushed in, the other half pops out, physically preventing the door from returning into its pocket. For emergency access a small hole can be drilled through the door and a slim object can be inserted through the hole to flip the rocker closed. Made of solid brass and available in 7 popular finishes.
