A rim lock is exactly what the name suggests, a lock that is mounted on the rim of the door. This design was made popular by the Yale and Lockwood deadlatches that are very common in residential applications, especially in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s era homes.


The major benefit in using a rim lock is that when the lock is installed, it requires very little timber to be removed from the door, therefore making the installation stronger than that of a deadbolt.


The differences between rim locks are: function, size, colour/finish and strength of mounting.
