A light duty Mortice Lock and a very popular choice for low cost residential use. 3 Lever mechanism for medium security, internal applications or on external doors where a high security lock is not required. Suitable for self-sprung lever handle furniture on backplate or rose and can be used with furniture having horizontal bolt through fixings. For ease of fixing the latch bolt can be quickly reversed, via the faceplate, for left hand or right hand hung doors.
This lock has a light sprung latch follower and should only be used with lever handle furniture with integral springing in the rose or backplate. To avoid fixing screws fouling the latch body use handles with horizontally opposed bolt-through fixings or with backplates where fixings positions are adequately spaced. NOT recommended for use with door knobs.
Can be fitted to double doors with rebated meeting stiles when used with the rebate conversion set in the Related Items section below.
