Rim Lockset For Hollow Metal Door

- Jul 02, 2019-

Rim locksets are used when modification of the door is not possible. The rim lock is face mounted to the door and a strike is face mounted to the door frame. These locksets are only accessible from one side of the door; i.e. there is not a handle or lever on the outside of the door. Pictured above is a rim lock with key access. In many applications, a thumb-turn is used instead of a key.
