Default Bi-fold door latch needed

I've been googleing door latches and so far, no luck. I need a latch for a bi-fold door that can be opened from either side. I know, no security in a bi-fold, but it keeps the cats where we want them.

Thanks in advance
Brian

or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Hi BrianS,

Home depot usually carries a large supply of bi-fold doors and hardware. I got the pivot pins for mine there about 6 months ago.

Hope this helps,
Ross

I'd think that a simple pivot latch would work for this purpose. It's a simple pivoting bar on one side with a notch for a pin on the other door. Comes in brass, and can be found at most hardware stores.
