Local Streatham locksmith: Nightlatch lock changed for a residential customer in Streatham, London.
Knowledge Corner: What is a Nightlatch lock?
Nightlatch is a lock which is mounted onto the surface of the door as opposed to being morticed into the edge of the door. A nightlatch holds the door shut on a latch which can often be deadlocked into position. Nightlatches are still sometimes referred to by their traditional name of 'rimlock' although a rimlock usually now refers to a basic security lock for use on internal doors, gates or outbuildings. A Nichtlatch is a lock with a bevelled springbolt or roller bolt which shoots when the door is closed, but can be withdrawn by key from outside and by knob or lever handle from inside. Usually provided with a stop knob, slide or snib to hold the bolt retracted and to deadlock the bolt when shot in the closed position, even against the action of the key.
