    • Make the keyhole and lock either a strong contrasting colour or a metal finish to the door; on a pale door a darker metal coated keyhole and lock is the best option.
    • For a darker coloured door fit a metal satin, chrome or brass lock as this will provide the best contrast.
    • Consider fitting a keyhole or lock that has an edge or a lip that can be easily identified by touch.
    • Highlight an existing keyhole and lock with a hard tactile marking outline.
    • Consider a security lock that accepts a key entry in any direction.
