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.
LockState LS-5i, LS-6i, and the LS-7i locks can all be easily keyed-alike by a local locksmith or hardware store as long as the locks to be keyed-alike all have the same type of key way. This is because the key blades and length are different for different types of key ways.
Here are the types of key ways each LockState lock uses:
- LS-5i: Kwikset K5 Key Way
- LS-6i: Schlage C6 Key Way
- LS-7i: Schlage C6 Key Way
This means that the 5i's can be keyed-alike with other 5i's. The 6i's and 7i's can be keyed-alike with other 6i's and 7i's, but a 5i and 6i combo is not possible. Neither is a 5i and 7i combo.
This is usually not a issue for property managers or associations that need multiple locks because they usually prefer to use the same lock model on all their doors (ie. all all 5i's, all 6i's or all 7i's).
