What is a Mortise Lock

Date:Apr 30, 2019

A mortise lock is a good, secure way to lock a door. It’s typically used on older doors and more generally found in older construction. The mortise lock has been replaced in many construction plans by the modern bored cylindrical lock but has been enjoying a comeback of sorts. Those wanting to install a mortise lock on their homes often find that it’s a complex project beyond the skills of the average homeowner and also requires an intermediate knowledge of woodwork.
