Mortise locks are older style locks that are used in both commercial properties and residential homes. They are different than a standard lock as they are placed inside the door rather than on the outside of the door frame. At Sure Lock & Key, we offer services on a variety of types of Mortise Locks for properties across St. Louis.
Older homes were built with mortise locks and based on their longstanding quality, the locks can take decades before they deteriorate or break. Making a repair necessary, but not always requiring a full replacement. These strong and reliable locks are perfect for high traffic areas in your home or business.
Doors that use the Mortise Lock must be cut with a mortise saw so that the components can be put into the door properly. The lock is made up of 5 major parts, including:
All pieces of the mortise lock are easily accessible and can be replaced if parts become over used or broken. These locks can also become very rusted with time and can be cleaned by electrolysis or a vinegar process. These processes clean the lock components and restore them for continued future use.
