Fall flaps which are inset, i.e. closing within the carcass framing, can be secured with standard till or drawer locks, but lay-on or onset flaps closing over the carcass framing require either purpose-made locks, link plate locks or special flap locks of which the type shown in 267 is a typical example. This lock can be used with striking plate 267:1, 2A for both inset or lay-on flaps, and with threaded bush and collared pin
(267:3B) for lay-on flaps only. Figure 267:4 is another variety for inset flaps in which the bolt shoots up into a standard striking plate.
