Seller: interestingandcollectible-04 (10,634) 99.6%, Location: Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 191978401872 no idea what it is, even when it was explained to me.x2 Hello,The two items you have for sale are two separate sections of two automatically operated inside door locking systems, probable from hotel bedrooms.The other sections to each lock are missing, (or not shown in the photos). These may still be attached to the original door.The sections you have were intended to be screwed to the door frame.The missing section was screwed to the door.An occupant of the room could swing the item you have on their hinge, over another brass section screwed to the door. If the occupant wanted to open the door and not let the caller in, the door would lock on the two brass items automatically (on the the design of the two items) as one through the other locked when deployed so the one on the door would slide in the hollow on the one screwed to the frame, allowing the occupant to see through the space between the door and the frame. This would LOCK the two brass items together, so the caller could could not force their way in.In actual fact, it is a secondary lock for the inside of a room to prevent forced access, letting the occupant have vision of the caller with the option to preclude their access.This design is still used on some older hotels today these being made of steel, but brass ones are much older.This system is the same purpose as the DOOR CHAIN system, but is easier to operate and does not catch in the closing of the door, therefore it will not damage the paintwork. The modern system is now a magnifying peep hole, so the door does not have to be opened at all to see who is calling. 5.3/8" length >>>>>>>>PLEASE READ Condition: used
