Night latches

Night latches (or rim locks) are usually referred to as a ‘Yale’ lock.  These locks are generally fitted to wooden doors.  This type of lock will normally lock automatically when you pull the door shut.  British Standard (BS) Night Latch locks can be fitted if you require more robust security to your property.  BS locks are usually have a  larger case and bolt with a security latch that stops the bolt from being ‘slipped’;  The picture shown below is this type of lock.

For those who keep losing their keys or would prefer a keyless system, there are keyless entry night latches available for your property.  You can simply push any sequence of numbers to open your door.
