Cast in solid Iron with solid Brass trim, this quality Privacy Rim Lock is replicated from original patterns of the Victorian era and is an ideal choice for period restoration projects. Providing simple, keyless locking of bathroom and toilet doors the lock is supplied with the modern addition of a coin release for access in the event of an emergency. The lock is non-handed to suit left hand or right hand applications without modification and can be used with any compatible rim knob furniture set.
Lock images are shown with our small Cottage Knobs in Polished Brass Unlacquered finish which should be ordered separately if required.
This lock MUST be fitted with door knobs that are specifically designed for use with rim locks and latches. These will generally be described as being "Rim" pattern. NOT suitable for use with "Mortice" pattern knob sets or lever type door handles.
All of our rim locks and latches are designed for surface fitting to the opening face of doors (pull side). They are NOT suitable for fitting to the closing face (push side).
For best results and long life, this latch should be lubricated with a light machine oil at least once a year.
One rim lock complete with frame keep, coin release and traditional countersunk slotted fixing screws for wood in matching finish.
Suitable rim knob furniture should be ordered separately via the relevant store section.
