10 Easy Pieces: Icebox Latches

December 5, 2018

Early icebox refrigerators were carefully designed pieces of furniture with durable hinges and handles. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find a working icebox, but the latch still persists—with the same satisfying snap and tactile handle. A single icebox latch can be applied to a wardrobe or a whole set to kitchen cabinets; here are our favorites.

The Richelieu Metal Ice Box Latch in chrome finish is $44.99 at Wayfair.
