What are night latch cylinders?
Night latches are strong, easy-to-install locks that are used on entrance doors to keep them safe and secure. They are used on doors that open inwards and will automatically lock as the door closes. You can only open the night latch using a key from the outside, but they can be closed, locked, and opened using a lock button and latch on the inside.
They have a straightforward design, featuring a lock cylinder, a backset with a lock button and latch, and a keep, which sits inside the door frame.
Night latch cylinders are the mechanism by which you insert the key at the front of the door. The cylinder passes through the hole drilled through the door and is held in place with a washer.
The cylinder features a metal ‘tail’, which is turned by the key and operates the latch, allowing you to open or close the door.
How to use a night latch cylinder
You can purchase night latch cylinders as replacement mechanisms that can stop you from needing to replace an entire night latch.
Installation is easy, too, as you can simply remove the existing cylinder and slide in the new cylinder.
