However, it makes sense to learn about your door lock. Different parts of a door lock are different, and they have several purposes.
Here are some of the common components in most commercial and home locks.
Latches are the part of the locks that extends into your door frame from the strike plate. This part of the door lock can be easily broken or sometimes become sticky, becoming ineffective. If you decide to change this part, it is important to consider a flexible latch to get better security. The standard latches are quickly forced to open.
If you need a good latch, you will get it from our locksmith . When buying a new latch, ensure that it matches perfectly with your old latch so that you do not get problems.
Strike Plates are the part of the door lock that attaches to the door frame . The door latch goes through strike plate to maintain a secure lock. Strike plates have different sizes and shapes. Some of the plates might have a rounded opening or a squared opening. Some might be flat on the side and some round, depending on the latch that will go into the strike plate. The strike plate exterior shape varies mostly depending on the decorative features of the lock. However, the external shape is not too important to the lock like the interior.
Changing these parts of a door lock is very easy. This is because it requires just two screws to be mounted in the door frame. The strike plates are quite similar to the door latches because they are not sold separately. They are both sold at the large box stores as parts of a lock-set. Before purchasing the strike plate, ensure that it will match perfectly with your latch.
