How To Replace A Mortise Lock If You Can’t Find The Same One?

Mortise locks are different from surface locks in that they are positioned in a cutout in the door rather than on the surface of the door. They are often used in older homes and can be difficult to find replacement parts for. When you lose your keys and can’t find the same mortise lock to replace it, it might be frustrating but don’t you worry our Residential Locksmith Are here to help you!

What If You Have Lost Your keys?

It’s aggravating when you lose your keys and can’t find the same mortise lock to replace it. In this case, you’ll need to replace the entire lock. The first step is to remove the screws that hold the lock in place. You may need a screwdriver for this step.

After you’ve removed the screws, you may remove the old lock. Make a note of how the old lock was placed so that you may replace it in the same manner. Consult a locksmith if you have any questions.

The new lock must now be installed. Once the lock is placed, ensure that the screws are snug so that the lock does not come loose over time. But don’t worry, there are a few other options that you can try.

In this blog post, We will discuss three different ways to replace a mortise lock if you can't find the same one.

1. First Option

One option is to try and find a similar style of lock. This may be difficult if you don’t know the brand or model of your old lock, but it’s worth a shot. You can also try finding a universal mortise lock that will fit most door types. If all else fails, you can always replace the entire door knob assembly with a new one. This is undoubtedly the simplest solution, but it may not be the best if your door is antique or one-of-a-kind.

2. Second Option

Another option is to get a new door knob assembly and install it yourself. This could save you money since many mortise lock sets are inexpensive these days. The disadvantage of this method is that if you need to drill holes into wooden doors, you’ll need tools like screwdrivers, pliers, and a drill bit. You might also have trouble finding replacement parts that match your old lockset perfectly (especially if they’re vintage).

3. Third option

The last option would be installing another style of locking mechanism altogether such as deadbolts or keyless entry systems which require no keys at all! These types of systems tend to be more expensive than traditional locksets but offer greater security since they have additional features like alarms which alert you when someone tries breaking into your home.

When replacing a mortise lock, it’s important that you choose carefully because the wrong decision could put your family at risk for break-ins or other intruders entering through an unlocked door knob assembly! Keep these tips in mind and good luck finding what works best for you!
