We're still here, staying safe and staying home, locked down and in isolation. We are still active and accepting orders but they may take a little longer to arrive because they are all being collected instead of being dropped off and the couriers are very busy.

bullet  Antique Mortice Lock, Large, Fully Refurbished

back one page
go to the beginning of category: Locks - mortice
Is it any wonder that so many of these locks survive for so long. The quaity of the mechanism is plain to see and we often wonder what a modern lock displaying the same quality of workmanship would cost to buy. This substantial mortice lock is completely original right down to the original forend cover and key. We`re going to call it Georgian because of the key. The only thing missing was the strike plate so we made one out of an old brass finger plate. The lock has three functions, a deadlocking bolt, a latch and a privacy bolt, the privacy bolt is operated by a single small knob on the `inside` of the room. This is an optional feature that can be ignored if required. simply by not making a hole in the door to accept the spindle. Wide forend will require a thick door. Case dimensions (size of mortice required) are Deep: 16.7cm, Wide: 10.3cm, Thick: 2.1cm.
Forend width: 3.2 cms
Key Backset: 8.8 cms
Knob Backset: 13.9 cms
Length: 17.4 cms
Overall height: 15.2 cms
