The British made Union 1022 Rim Nightlatch (Slam Lock) has been a popular choice for house front entrance doors since it's introduction over 80 years ago and is ideally suited to wood doors with standard 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 The latchbolt can be held back in the withdrawn position or deadlocked using the internal snib rendering the lock inoperable by key or inside turn. The lock is non-handed to suit left hand or right hand applications without modification.
Use with any of our standard Round Rim Cylinders - a small selection can be found in the Related Items section below
This lock has no key deadlocking function and is therefore not recommended for glazed doors.
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.
This nightlatch case is supplied WITHOUT an external cylinder lock barrel. Suitable Round Rim Cylinders can be purchased via the relevant store section.
For best results and long life, the internal moving parts of this lock should be lubricated with a light machine oil at least once a year.
One nightlach case complete with frame keep and fixings.
External Round Rim Cylinder lock barrels should be ordered separately.
