The Legge 727 Rim Nightlatch (Slam Lock) has been a popular choice for house front entrance doors since the mid 1960s and is ideally suited to glazed or panelled wood doors with narrower stile widths. The latchbolt can be held back in the withdrawn position or deadlocked using the internal snib rendering the lock inoperable by key or inside turn. In addition the optional "Deadlocking" function (selectable when fitting) allows the lock to be deadlocked externally by a full turn of the key. The lock is non-handed to suit left hand or right hand applications without modification.
Available in Silver finished case with external brass cylinder or full Polished Brass Plated & Laquered case with external brass cylinder. Suitable external cylinders in other finishes can be purchased from the relevant store section.
All of our rim nightlatches are supplied to suit inward opening doors as standard. Outward opening doors can be accomodated by reversing the latchbolt and fitting with an appropriate, alternative striking plate - please refer to the Related Items section below.
