Our hatch/door into the loft is simply a board that sits its on a ridge,
consequently a strong gust of wind with the front door open sends it flying
into the loft space!
I want to make a proper job of it and make the hatch/door hinge down using a
spring-loaded latch I once saw on someone's loft door it was simply a
sliding bar spring-loaded with a large(ish) ring, as opposed to a knob, so
you could put a hook into it and pull (rather like the old school windows
(well, in my day anyway!)
Does anyone know where I can buy such an item?
