e. Rim Locks. Rim locks (Figure 162) are easier to install
because they are normally installed on the inside surface of exterior
doors. One bored hole is usually all that is required. On some
types, however, a recess must be cut for the lock.
f. Striker Plate. A striker plate (Figure 163) is usually
mortised into the frame of the opening for a lock. It prevents the
wood from wearing or splitting and cannot be pried loose easily.
