Lock Mechanism

The major part of a lock is a latch or bolt that extends from it to the door frame. When the key is changed, the bolt is pulled back into the instrument so that the door can be opened. Rim locks have one keyhole, naturally on the exterior, while the owner utilizes a latch to open from inside.

It is imperative to note that all of them have disks, pins or wards so that they can be prevented from being offensively opened. The correct key gives the owner the chance to move the tumblers or pins from the closed position to the open position.
