The rim door lock is one of the oldest interior door locks. It is common in many old-style interior doors and traditional houses.
The rim-mounted locks are mounted on the inside surface or edge of the door to give your room with some privacy. If the door in your room is not thick enough to install the internal locking device(keyed knobs or keyed levers), the rim lock is a good choice now. However, the rim lock is not suitable for exterior doors or the main front door of the home-because the hub lock will be easily destroyed. If you really want to use them for exterior doors, please consider adding additional locks for better security, such as using a deadbolt lock.
