Latchbolt Types & Handedness
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.
Both the LS-6i and the LS-5i locks can be re-keyed, but because they have different key-ways, they cannot be keyed alike. So 5i's can be keyed the same and 6i's can be the same, but a 5i and 6i combo is not possible.
- LS-6i: Schlage C6 keyway
- LS-5i: K5 Keyway (Kwikset)
The key blades and length are totally different. This is because they come from different factories. In this situation, typically a condo would adhere to a single lock model for all doors; ie. all 6i's.
