what is this door latch called?

I'm looking to buy this door latch to use on my pantry door (as baby proofing with minimal footprint). Someone sent me this photo as what they have that works great, but they have no idea what it's called or who makes it.

Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

I suggest that you do an Internet search using the term baby proof door latch. Only about a gazillion hits.

Look for Hotel Security Latch
Privacy Latch
There are several different styles and all prevent a door from being opened.

Looks like we have a winner! Nice design. Will work just fine until hubby comes home from work, has his keys, unlocks the door and still can't get in. BTDT. I think for the OP's use it will work just fine.
