Mortise Lock Replacement & Repair
Residential lock replacement is important to do at various times to ensure your home is secure. Consult a locksmith to know if you may need to replace your locks.
A mortise lock is a type of lock that is installed into a mortise, or a pocket, cut into the door. These locks are commonly found on older homes and buildings, and they offer a high level of security due to their construction. However, like all locks, mortise locks can become worn or damaged over time, and may need to be replaced or repaired.
When it comes to mortise lock replacement, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it's important to ensure that the new lock is the same size and style as the old one, in order for it to fit properly into the mortise. Additionally, the new lock should be able to function with the same key as the old lock, or new keys should be made to match the new lock.
If the lock is not worn out and still functional, we can repair the lock instead of replacing it. This can be done by replacing worn or damaged parts, such as the tumbler or spring. We can determine if a repair or replacement is needed and can advise you on the best course of action.
It's also important to keep in mind that if you are replacing or repairing a mortise lock, you should also consider upgrading the other locks on your doors, to ensure that they all provide the same level of security. This can include deadbolts, latch locks and keyless entry.
