Easy to use front door lock for wooden door

by NeilDCookson » Tue Jul 11, 2023 1:19 pm

Hi my elderly mum has dementia. She has a part wood, part glass front door with a simple yale style lock. She keeps being locked out when she goes to the bin or garden. I have already removed the lock snip as she gets confused and locked the carers and nurses out and herself in. I need a lock that will open from the outside by key, will not close behind her if the the breeze catches it, and can be opened from the inside by a handle, and when closed shut does not need any handles lifting of snip or latches to lock it. In short no actions on her part to open and securely close the door from the inside other than turning a handle in the old fashioned way. I will also need about 8 keys for the various carers, nurses and family. Can you help/advise many thanks Neil

Hi neildcookson,
Suggest you buy a euro cylinder lever lock and fit a thumb turn cylinder.
