Commonality of casket locks

Setting: Modern day North America
Googled: "casket lock" "casket lock how common"

This is more of a personal-experience question than anything. I've got two characters temporarily trapped in a casket and am trying to figure out the likelihood of a lock mishap being the cause of their confinement. How common are locks on caskets in North America, and is it at all likely they would snap closed on their own if the lid slammed down?
