40-028 Keeper placement

A handy person from North Carolina says:
For an in-swinging door, does this keeper mount on the outside of the door frame (so a visitor sees it before opening the door, and where it may be exposed to weather), or inside of the door frame (so the inhabitant sees it before opening the door, and it is out of the weather)? I am having a difficult time visualizing the placement on the door jamb.

For an in-swinging door, the latch and keeper are placed to the inside of the door and are not seen by outside the visitor.
