Locks Guide for Wooden & Metal Side Gates

There is a wide choice of locks for side garden gates that are both metal and wooden.

Some are simple to fit, whilst others are a little more complex which tend to be more secure for the protection of you, your family and your home.

Take a look at our guide below to find out what type of lock you may have. We can replace a wide variety of locks including those shown below:

Brenton Pad Bolt

This is more commonly known as a simple pad bolt. This can be fitted to the front or rear face of your side gate using a combination of bolts, screws and a secure lock. The pad bolt locks using a padlock. This type of lock system is not the most secure and this needs to be taken into consideration when deciding which option is best for you

Rim Locks

A rimlock is really a very simple lock for a garden gate or side door, so called as it sits on the edge (rim) of the gate or door. This is commonly found on the inside of sheds, outdoor garden buildings and on braced or ledged gates. This type of lock is not always the most secure and can be snapped if sufficient pressure is applied.

There are 2 types of rim locks a simple version that can be opened either side of the gate with a key. The other is latch and lock version which once opened requires a twist and turn motion.

Rim Cylinders Example


These were historically known as rim locks, though they shouldn’t be confused with the modern-day rimlock as these are more referred to as a night latch locking system. This is sometimes also referred to as a Yale Lock, however, there are many other brands available. A Nightlatch is fitted on the inside face of an external door. On the inside face of the lock, you have a little lever handle and usually a snib.
