With this lock, you have the option to choose a Mortised Latchbolt/Deadbolt Combo for the Latch Bolt Type below. This is the perfect option if you would like the added safety and convenience of a dead bolt combined with the security of the latch bolt.
How the Mortised Latchbolt/Deadbolt works: While unlocked, simply turn the handle up to enable (lock) the deadbolt and down to disable (unlock) the deadbolt. The latchbolt parts works just like a regular latchbolt meaning it locks automatically when the door is closed.
We do not recommend using on a narrow stile storefront door because the holes needed for this lock can compromise the strength of the door.
