What are Bathroom Locks?

Bathroom locks are locks which are specifically designed for bathrooms. They consist of a thumbturn on one side which is used to lock and unlock the door via a thumbturn spindle within the handle, with a coin and release thumbturn on the opposite side which allows the door to be unlocked with a coin in an emergency.

Our bathroom on backplate lever sets are equipped with a fixed thumbturn, whereas our door knobs and lever on rose handles are not, meaning you'll need to purchase a thumbturn separately.

Components Explained

Standard Bathroom Lock - these types of lock are designed to be used in bathrooms with lever handles and thumbturns. They're mortised into the door and secured with screw fittings.

Sprung Handle - our sprung lever handles are suitable for use with a variety of locks thanks to the strong spring mechanisms they contain which bring the lever back to its horizontal position.

Thumbturn Spindle - our thumbturns use a 5mm spindle designed for use solely with thumbturns.

Split Spindle -  a standard split spindle for use on doors with a maximum thickness of 44mm. If your door is thicker than 44mm, please get in touch and we can provide you with a longer spindle for use with these products.

Thumbturn - used to lock and unlock the bathroom door, one thumbturn is included either loose or fixed to the handle.

Receiver Plate -  fitted to the frame of the door and screw fixed in to provide a slot for the lock & latch.

Wood Screw Fixings - all our lever handle sets are equipped with matching wood screw fixings to ensure they're fitted soundly in place.
