Levers - Please check the Spindle size. Ours are 8mm or 9mm Spindles set on the square.
You will require 8mm or 9mm depending on which Lock you choose & the size of it's Lever Hub
Our Petite Mortises have 7mm Lever Spindles, also set on the square.


You may request an 8mm or 9mm Hub for our 4040 / 3200 / 3800 Series Mortises Locks


Door Plates (Escutcheons) - Will also change for different Locks. You will need to check the 'Centers'.
This is the measurement between the middle of the Lever Hole, down to the middle of the Key or Privacy Hole.


Our Full Size Locks usually have 60mm or 75mm Centers.


Roses / Rosettes - Are generally used for Thru-Bolting through a Mortise.
Some of the smaller or thinner Locks do not have Holes for Thru-Bolting (868, 968, 4040 Series).

We understand there are many things to be considered when putting all the items of your Lock together.
