Rim nightlatches are surface locks that can be used on front doors of flats, apartments and houses - they are also widely known as Yale Locks. Rim nightlatches are straightforward locking mechanisms and feature a latch that is operated by a turn from one side and a key from the other side.
This type of latch is commonly used on entrance doors because of the way it works – unlock the door from the outside, go inside, close the door and it is locked - there is no need to lock the door again. Rim night latches are ideal for domestic situations.
If you live in a modern home or apartment then it is very likely that you have rim night latches fitted on the front door of your property. They are straightforward to install for competent DIYers or locksmiths. Here at LoveHandles we feature a range of top quality night latches from the likes of Hoppe and Legge.
