FAQ's

How to install a rim lock?

Ideal for use with internal doors rim locks are fitted to the surface of the door frame, though the installation process is relatively straightforward we always recommend seeking the advice, or assistance of a qualified trades person if you are at all unsure.

Fitting your new lock requires fairly accurate measurements, with this in mind we recommend starting by marking out the position you intend to place the lock.

  • Take a pencil and mark where you plan to fit the lock. A handy tip if you’re unsure what height to install at, take a look at other locks and door handles within your home to use as a guide. Visually the finished product will appear far nicer if installed at a similar height to other locks within the vicinity.

  • At this point it’s also helpful to mark out where the fixing holes, door knob spindle and keyhole will align to help ensure you drill the holes with precision. When upgrading an existing door, you will find the door already features a spindle. The existing spindle may work with the new lock, which saves making any adjustments to the spindle hole.

  • Once the holes are drilled, position the lock and fix in place with the screws provided.

  • Now the lock is secured you will need to drill the other side of the door to fit the matching rim knob, take care to align the new fixing holes with the already fitted rim lock.

  • With the rim knobs and lock now fitted you will need to close the door to attach the staple, this is the piece that secures the locking mechanism.

  • Using the fitted lock as a guide, mark the correct height of the staple on the door frame to help you position the staple before drilling its fixing holes.

  • Before fixing the staple to the door frame you may need to rebate the door frame slightly in order to ensure the staple fits flush and aligns with the lock. The depth of the rebate will determine how firmly the door will be held in place when closed.
