Identifying the Correct Strike Plate for your Lock

What is a strike plate? A strike plate is a metal plate that has a hole or holes for the bolt of a lock. The strike plate is typically attached by screws, and is aligned with the lock. Aligning the strike plate with the lock allows the latch to have a place to fit into when the door is closed. Strike plates also add protection and security to the locks, especially when using longer screws to install the plate. Another type of protection provided by strike plates is to help protect the doors from the rubbing that comes with use of locks.

The right strike plate for your lock can be found by measuring the lock and identifying the shape of the latch and door frame. EasyKeys has various options, including the correct strike plate for you!
