What is a Mortise Lock? What is a high security lock?

A mortise lock (also known as a mortise deadlock) is a type of lock that necessitates a pocket – or mortise – to be embedded inside the door. Mortise locks are made up of three main parts: the lock body, the part of the lock installed in the door, and the box keep, which is installed in the door jamb. The mortise lock system is built within the door so that only the faceplate and door handle are visible.

The main difference between a normal lock and a high security lock is the security rating. These ratings are given after being analyzed by manufacturers, locksmiths, and security researchers. A lock’s rating is based on characteristics such as pins, tumblers, and ease of picking. High security locks are more appealing to commercial business owners because they deter forced entry and unwanted intrusion. A Grade 1 lock is the strongest grade of security for a commercial lock. A lock receives this grade based on operational and security tests. Grade 1 means that the lock model has withstood one million uses and is still functioning.

Installation and Repair of Mortise Locks for Homes

As mentioned in the previous section, mortise locks can provide security to homes as they are much more difficult to pick or force than a regular deadbolt. They require special tools (such as a mortising jig) and skills (such as woodworking) to accomplish.
