Is it possible to get a rim lock that has more than 1 lever and if so, where
from. I checked Screwfix and Toolstation but alas no use.
Police advised me to change the one I have on my shed at the moment.
There is no technical reason why a rim lock should be operable with just a
I have certainly seen them with three levers, more if you include Yale rim
I wouldn't use one if it could be avoided as they are easy to access so can
be cut/drilled easier than a mortise lock.
Nobody is going to use a skeleton key on a shed. The door is going to be
unlocked in the first place, or the intruder will use brute force to gain
access. Leave the rim lock and bolt a few planks on the door so that it
looks as if you have taken security really seriously. Any intruder is going
to whizz by, take a quick look and climb into your neighbours living room
through their open window...
