I remember somebody posted a link for locks for this kind of thing. I couldn’t seem to search it so if somebody can remember it or suggest. I have full-size doors that open out like French doors, the cover my washer and dryer. I need something so that I can lock them closed for clamped them closed when I have guests does anybody have a link or an idea on what like I can buy for this?
The one I saw was about wardrobe sliding doors rather than French doors - have you looked on Ebay or Amazon… I am sure they will have something.
Simplest and cheapest is a concealed security bolt at the top of each door, just depends on how secure you want it.
great! Except I am in the US. Any links for similar here?
Well flippin eck I didn’t know that…try ebay.com instead
What kind of handle or latching mechanism do these doors have now?
none. they simply close without any latch or lock
If the door is thick enough and you have a hole saw and large drill bit you could just install a deadbolt or a locking handle if you really want it securely locked without attaching something hideous like a clasp with a padlock. Maybe check pocket door locks or mortise style locks.
Maybe this would work. https://www.amazon.com/Nu-set-Heavy-Duty-Night-Latch/dp/B002IPIOK8/ref=sr_1_4?
