    There are two great inventions evolved from humankind. In the beginning mankind (or womankind) invented the wheel. Possibly under the suggestion of 'why don't you build a cart and you can pick up some groceries on your way home from hunting.'

    To do this mankind would have travelled into his mancave and behind closed doors... but wait, to do that he would have needed to invent a door handle, door knob, or door lever so that he could secure his mancave from the outside world. And so the story begins...

    Door knobs, door levers, or door handles have a spindle running through them that operates a latch mechanism or lock mechanism to secure the door.

    By rotating the door knob or door lever through the spindle you retract the latch. The "latch bolt", simply known as the "latch", which protrudes into a space carved out of the door frame, prevents the door from being pushed open if the door knob or door lever is not rotated.
