There are two ways to frame locks. The first method is a simple box lock. At the end of the door in this case, the strap lock will remain on view. Attach the lock to the door, draw a pencil the location on the door end, where we will make a hollow in the tree. Now note at this place a thickness of the lock, draw a rectangle that you have cut in the door. Take the drill, insert the drill bit, the thickness coinciding with the thickness of the lock. On the drill, check the wire depth at which to drill the hole. Start drilling, making holes close as possible to the drill bit.
Now you've got a hole with jagged edges. Align them, cutting with a chisel the excess wood. You get a flat rectangular opening. Put him in your castle, draw with a pencil the front bar of the castle. Cut with a chisel the wood at this mark and the thickness of the bar. Again, insert the lock and check whether all is fine. Attach the lock to the outside of the fabric of the castle opposite you cut the holes, mark where the hole for the lock cylinder. Drill a hole, align it with the chisel to the desired size, then zarovnaya the edges round with a file.
