MORTISE VS. TUBULAR
Locks are available in two basic formats. Mortise locks or tubular locks.
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.
