Vians 12V Stainless Electric Security Rim Door Lock
A rim lock, or rim latch, is a lock you can mount on the outer
surface of your door. Since it's usually used in addition to other,
internal locks, it's often called an auxiliary lock. Rim locks,
like most other locks, consist of a lock body mechanism (the bit
you attach to the door) and a strike (the bit on the doorframe that
the latch clicks into). Depending on your security needs, there are
several different types you can choose from.
Installing Your Rim Lock
Once you've decided which rim lock you want, the next step is
installation. To install the rim lock, first line up the lock body
cylinder on the door where you want it to be and mark the spots for
the screw holes and for the cylinder itself. Then, drill or cut
holes in the door accordingly, fit the cylinder into the door, and
screw it in tightly to the plate on the other side. (If it's not
tight enough, a burglar can twist the cylinder in the door and
break the screws, and the lock is useless.)
Once the lock body is securely installed, line up the strike on the
doorframe opposite the lock, mark screw holes, and drill them. (You
may also need to chisel out space for the strike body if it isn't
flat.) Then, just screw the strike in place, test the lock, and
make adjustments as necessary.
As we said before, rim locks are most effective when used in
addition to your regular door locks-so even after you've installed
a quality rim lock, don't forget to fasten your other locks, too.
With the extra security of a rim lock, however, you can rest a
little easier knowing that your home and your belongings are that
