Cupboard/drawer locks (rim locks)

Square and round rim locks are most commonly used for cupboard and drawers. The lock is generally secured by a deadbolt which slots behind an angled striking plate or a rectangular plate that is fitted to the edge of the furniture, the bolt in some cases can be spring loaded and the key will only be needed to unlock the unit.

Most cupboard locks come with a square or round back plate, but can also be found in various other shapes.
