Thumb turn from both sides of door

Do they make thumb tuns like the one pictured that can be operated from either side of the door?

Ideally something simply like this that would turn deadbolt but can be operated from either door side. I suppose a long enough spindle with two thumb turns would accomplish it but was wondering if they make something specifically for this

I'm a little confused.

You wouldn't be operating a dead bolt from both sides with just a turn handle.
There would be no security.

It's for an inside door. I'm not worried about security. Currently there is only a thumb turn on one side that locks - no key. When I go through the door into the other room I'd like to be able to lock it so pets can't push through into the room.

Maybe I am still lost, but why a thumb bolt? I mean, why not just put a door knob there? I mean, that would get you in and out from either side, with or without a lock. The hole in the door is the same. Just replace it with a door knob of your choosing.

Again, maybe I still dont understand your need but, just thought I'd suggest it.

I want to keep the door consistent plus a doorknob hole would be bigger

If that is what you want, you would have to order 2 of a product like this, and then cut the tangs to length so that each went exactly halfway into the latch.

Do what Dixie2012 said. Yes you make another hole with a standard doorknob. Leave the dead bolt. Now you have a standard door that works the proper way.

You need a passage lock/latch.
