What is a Mortise 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. They 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. Such locks are primarily used in older buildings, but have recently made a comeback in commercial and residential properties. Mortise locks are also quite secure as it is very difficult for an intruder to pick the lock and force the door open. The mortise lock system is built within the door so that only the faceplate and door handle are visible.
Installation & 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. Having a mortise lock is especially important if your home has many valuables. Also unlike a deadbolt, they can only be opened by a key. Once the key is turned, the lock cannot be disengaged without the key.
However, mortise locks are often difficult to install. They require special tools (such as a mortising jig) and skills (such as woodworking) to accomplish. You can rest assured that our licensed, bonded, and insured locksmiths have these tools and skills on hand and can install and repair mortise locks quickly and efficiently.
