A spring loaded latch is a latch that uses a spring to actuate the bolt of the latch. This helps to return the bolt to a default position when not in use. This is usually in the closed position, take for example a bolt latch. When the latch is not in use the bolt is pushed forward engaging the keeper until someone opens it. The bolt is then pushed back against the spring removing the bolt from the keeper. The bolt can then be let go when the door is closed again to secure the door.
