Antique Exterior Thumblatch Mortise Lock

Product Image Gallery:
Exterior cast iron and solid brass unmarked mortise lock with thumblatch. An exterior mortise lock is a lock which is used on an exterior door that has been cut with a pocket or hole into which the lock is to be fitted. Exterior locks are used to both latch and lock the door. Exterior mortise locks commonly include a doorknob hub, through which a doorknob spindle is installed and doorknobs are mounted on each side and secured into place with pins or set screws; a thumbturn hub which accommodates an thumbturn which in turn throws the deadbolt to lock and unlock the door from the inside of the house, and either a keyhole for an old-fashioned skeleton or bit key or a circular hole for a cylinder lock. A cylinder lock is a lock constructed with a cylinder that a locksmith can easily unscrew to facilitate rekeying. The cylinder may contain any of a variety of locking mechanisms, including the pin tumbler lock, the wafer tumbler lock and the disc tumbler lock. Antique cylinders missing the key can be taken to a locksmith to have a new key cut.

Mortise locks have specific dimensions including backset, the measurement from the edge of the faceplate (the strip that shows when the mortise lock is installed in the door) to the center of the doorknob hub; and spacing, the measurement from the center of the doorknob hub to the center of the round part of the keyhole. The dimensions were not standardized in the 19th century so it is important to note the dimensions of your door prior to purchasing a mortise lock.

Good selection...and fast!

The plates look great on our door. Thanks for shipping so fast and for the great and personal service.

Stunningly beautiful

Extremely pleased. We needed a narrow piece on the receptor side because of modern doubled glazed windows, and this fit the bill perfectly. Had to search a long time to find this piece and so glad I found it here, at last. Looks absolutely gorgeous and original in our Edwardian home. Highly recommend! Quality and function is outstanding. Had questions about the item and got prompt and thorough response; great customer service. Would gladly order again.

Great item!

Perfect piece for the icebox I refinished that came out of my childhood home! Made the icebox look like it did when it came out of the factory.

Great, affordable

I was having trouble sourcing lifts that were good quality, and matched with all of the other hardware in the kitchen. These fit the bill, and were less than half what I have seen elsewhere. They are solid, nicely weighted. Worth knowing that they are cast rather than stamped, so holes can be slightly different from one to another -- means that you have to be careful with measuring and leveling. But the upside is a truly historic and great-looking lift.

Arts and Crafts Numbers

It has been a challenge to find house numbers in an Arts and Crafts Style that actually look like it was original to the time period. These numbers hit the nail on the head. I get nervous about buying things online and hope that they look good and these house numbers did not disappoint. I love the finish on them as well. I would purchase from Historic House Parts again!

Beautiful!

Purchased to replace old yellowing cardboard candelabra covers - thought I wanted/needed a new chandelier until these beautiful covers revived it! People even think I purchased a new fixture!! Would highly recommend - price and shipping could not be beat! Would definitely do business again!! Thanks!!

Just perfect

I can't recommend this bin pull highly enough. Solid, heavy feel and beautiful shape and finish. The polished nickel looks far more expensive than it is. These were the perfect smaller scale for our drawers in our updated "vintage" kitchen of our 1923 Craftsman home. So glad to find these!

Door Knob Spindle

This worked perfectly. Exactly as it should have. I was so shocked to find it online and so inexpensive. I had looked at antique dealers who wanted $20 or more for an old rusty one and I got it here for less than $4. Thank you so much!
