Correspondingly, what is a privacy lever set?

Interior Door Knob Or Lever Sets By Emtek The knobs or levers freely operate the latch. Passage sets are commonly used on interior doors, and sometimes on an exterior door in conjunction with a separate deadbolt. Privacy - Usually used on bathroom doors, and any other door that needs to be locked from the inside.

Similarly, how does a privacy lock work? PRIVACY SETS are often used for single-occupant restrooms or dressing rooms. They can be locked from the inside with a thumbturn or push button/ turn for privacy, and they are typically unlocked from the outside using a tool rather than a key.
