I have found several on line, but I can't figure out how it is supposed to work. Any ideas?

The one shown... visualize a box top that has a center panel cut out. This panel is then hinged back in place as a door would be. The turn button is screwed to the solid frame that surrounds the door panel, opposite the hinged side. Turning the button allows one of the wings to overlap the door panel, preventing it from opening.

Some of those pictured below simply have surrounding plates that dress out the catch and give the button something to lock against, instead of the bare or painted wood.

Thanks... I was trying to picture it on the door, and that wasn't cutting it.

Used to see a less polished version of these holding wood frame window screens in place from the outside of the house.
