What is a Mortise Lock?
A mortise lock is a hardware device that fits into a pocket within a door. It is considered much more secure than cylindrical or tubular locks, and is the primary type of lock used in homes, apartments and commercial applications.   Mortise locks are composed of a number of different parts. There is the lock body itself, which is generally several inches wide. The latch, which is used to lock the door, is contained within this lock body. A strike box is installed in the door frame, and is covered by a strike plate. The strike box catches and holds the latch to keep the door locked. Finally, trim and handles are installed on the outside of the door, and are used to operate the lock.
