Victorian style rim lock

Installing a new rim lock

One of the oldest period features we have in our house is a barn door that goes to the 19th century. When we viewed the house, there was an elegant, vintage lock on the back of the door – this was removed and replaced by a cheap, office-looking rim lock by the time we moved in.

It goes without saying that the rim lock does not match the Victorian door in any way, so we did our research and purchased a Victorian-style rim lock with beehive handle, which we change in the video below.

We purchased this rim lock on eBay.
