First time on site. I've just moved into a new house and all the doors are fitted with brass tubular 63mm mortice latches. I want to make one of these doors lockable but don't know how to get started. Ideally, I don't have to remove any extra timber from the door or put in a barrel bolt in the architrave (as it's a rental).
