This massive, cast-iron rim lock is faithfully reproduced from an early 19th century original used on entry doors. (If installing on an entry door, pair it with a modern deadbolt for security.) Ideal for large interior doors, it comes with matching un-lacquered brass knobs, trim and a pair of impressive skeleton keys. The heavy duty lock features all brass internal parts, a skeleton key lock and sliding privacy bolt (privacy bolt can not be disengaged from outside the room).
Lock body: 7 1/4" W x 5 1/8" H x 1 3/16" Thick. Keeper: 1 1/2" W x 5 1/8" H x 1 3/16" Thick. Backset: 4 5/8". Knobs: 1 7/8" diameter. Rosette: 1 7/8" diameter.
The lock is installed on the inside of a door opening into the room and is handed left or right. To determine handing, stand outside the room and note hinge placement. If the hinges are on the left, you need a left hand lock. If the hinges are on the right, you need a right hand lock. The right hand lock is pictured. Please call if you need help determining the correct handing for your door.
