A lock that is attached to the surface of the door is called a Rim Lock. These locks are quite suitable for internal doors and gates. A rim lock is sometimes backed by night latches, which hold the doors shut in proper position.
Also, the front doors with these locks can be shut without a key and are opened with the help of key from outside, but one is able to unlock these doors from inside without a key. Nightlatch rim cylinder locks are also known as Yale locks, after the name of one of the leading brands. Locksmith in London supplies and fits these locks from Yale or other brands.

Mortice lock consists of a pocket, which has to be cut into the door or cabinet or furniture into which the lock has to be embedded. These locks can be often seen on back doors. In case of front doors, they are paired with cylinder rim locks or Yale locks.
These locks can be categorized as deadlocks or sash locks. Deadlocks have only a keyhole and a bolt, while sash locks consist of bolt, latch and a pair of handles.
Previously, these locks were used in old buildings only, but now they are fixed in many domestic and commercial properties. The five lever mortice deadlock should be fitted to all external doors, according to the Home Office. This is also considered as a minimum standard for many insurance companies.
Now this is important to note that lever variations can take place. Number of levers are directly proportional to the level of security. As it gets more difficult to pick the locks, with higher number of levers.
