I am looking to make the door handles for my kids' rooms quieter. Today I went through and oiled everything, but the latch / mortise assembly (??correct term?) that I have in my doors are still pretty noisy. I went in search or something that would be quieter.
Early in my search I found this Tubular Mortise Silent Magnetic Internal Door Latch, but it didn't look like the kind of latch I have on my doors. So I tried searching, and everything seems to be for Europe and nothing looks like an American style latch/bolt.
Whenever I searched specifically for American or US style, all I got was electromagnetic security doors (card reader type releases) or things for cabinets.
Do they not make these in American style doors or am I just not using the right search terms? While it seems the point is to remove the strike plate, I would like to keep it since its notched into my door frame already. I would like the bolt to just be hidden away and then magnetic engage when the door is closed, mechanically pull away when the handle is pushed down.
The hope is that this would allow quieter exits from kids rooms at night. I don't need a specific brand/product recommendation, just the right terms to find this if they make them as replacements for typical USA style latches. I have a door handle similar to this one if that helps.
