FUNCTIONS
Most locks are available in all the functions usually required in a house. These include Passage, Privacy, Dummy, and for deadbolts and keyed sideplate locks, Single Keyed and Double Keyed. Key-in-Lever and Knob locks are available with one function only, with a keyed cylinder on the outside and a turn-piece release on the inside.
Passage
This function is used for doors where no locking is required. The knobs or levers freely operate the latch. Passage sets are commonly used on interior doors (ie: closet doors), and sometimes on an exterior door in conjunction with a separate deadbolt.

Privacy
Usually used on bathroom, bedroom, and any other door that needs to be locked from the inside. A push button is provided on the inside rosette, pushing the button fixes the outside handle, turning the inside handle releases the lock. A clearance hole is provided in the outside rosette to permit the lock to be released with a nail, if needed. Privacy locks should not be used on exterior doors unless accompanied by a separate deadbolt.

Dummy
Used on fixed (non-operating) doors and sometimes on closet doors. Sold as a pair, these handles do not operate, they stay in a fixed position, no latch is provided or normally needed. Dummy handles provide a firm grip where desired, and are used on the non-locking side of French doors to give balanced, matching appearance. Emtek dummy handles are surface mounted, no bore holes are required in the door. All mounting hardware is provided.

Single Cylinder Deadbolt
The most popular configuration for deadbolt locks, a keyed cylinder is provided for the outside and a turn-piece is located on the inside. The lock may be locked or unlocked with a key from the outside. The turn-piece allows locking or unlocking without a key from the inside.<br>

Double Cylinder Deadbolt
Used in situations where free egress from the inside is not needed or desired. Keyed cylinders are provided for both outside and inside. Locking and unlocking can be accomplished only with a key. Before ordering these types of locks, please check with your local building department for any applicable building codes.
Patio Deadbolt - (One Sided)
Used in situations where a deadbolt latch is required, yet not visible from the exterior. This function will require an edge bore and a half face bore.

Mortise Locks
Mortise Locks require a lock box similar to the one shown to be embedded into the edge of the door. This type of locking system is used on higher end locks and usually requires a carpenter to install. The cost of the hardware and the cost of installation are higher than that of an identical tubular set. Every set we sell comes with the necessary installation instructions.
Tubular Locks
The standard setup today now includes the prep seen in the image shown here. This requires a 2-1/8" diameter through the door bore and a 1" diameter bore through the edge of the door for each latch on the door. Entry Sets typically use two latches (1-deadbolt & 1-passage). Most sets we sell comes with the necessary installation instructions.
