Our very popular Pocket Door Lock with Key, is being snapped up by many customers, thank you.
Perhaps the most common question I receive is, "Will it fit in place of the existing lock I have?"
My answer to this common question is, "definitely". This lock has been especially designed to replace the common pocket door privacy sets found all across the world.
Here is how the installation is performed, according to the manufacturers instructions. While I suggest that your carpenter or builder be asked to install it, it is a reasonably straightforward project for the home handyman to perform, presuming they have the correct tools. **NOTE** This product is designed for doors up to 42mm (1-11/16") thick.
Each lock comes with a plastic template to guide the installation. I suggest that a jigsaw be used to accurately cut the extra depth necessary for the correct installation.
Be sure to follow the instructions correctly and in about 1-2 hours your project will be complete.
Install the screws of choice.
Mark the mortise strike fixing and complete.
At only $125.00, there are few, if any competitively priced alternatives.
