Mortise bolt/thumb latch on kids' bedroom doors? yay or nay?
I "think" we finally decided on our interior door hardware (an unlacquered brass egg and dart knob with matching escutcheon/backplate). We'll do the mortise skeleton key on two rooms only, library and first floor powder room. Anyway, everywhere else will be passage doors or, for bathrooms and, possibly, our children's bedrooms, a mortise bolt. These are very affordable to purchase and install, but my husband is suggesting we shouldn't allow our kids a way to lock their bedroom doors. They are currently toddlers, not sure that's relevant.
And, these mortise bolts/thumb latches, can you somehow deactivate them from the outside in case of emergency?
