Here is our cut sheet for a vertical rim lock that can be surface mounted to either the interior or exterior side of an entry door. Any knob can used for both the interior and exterior sides of the set which is made complete with a skeleton key for locking.

Rim locks were made popular in the 18th and 19th centuries and have been utilized since to maintain that early vintage look. This particular rim lock is taller than it is wide, apart from the traditional style which takes up more door lengthwise.
