One of the oldest types of door lock in the world, exposed rim locks were traditionally individually crafted and often elaborately designed to reflect and enhance the character of the buildings where they were installed. After thriving worldwide through the renaissance, Victorian, and craftsman periods, the rim lock disappeared in an era of mass production and concealed hardware.

At Caav Designs we are dedicated to the revival of this legacy lock style. Our hardware combines the age-old tradition of customizing to the design theme of the building, with patent-pending mechanisms and precision machined parts built to last generations. With concealed fasteners and limitless design possibilities, Caav hardware complements exceptional homes, offices, and other architectural creations of any style or era.
