Mortice Lock Specialist in Devon


We are one of the few local locksmiths that specialise in mortice locks. Mortice locks, known for their robust security features, are extremely popular but require a specific skill-set to professionally fit, repair and replace.

What are mortice locks?

Mortice locks are traditional, highly secure locking mechanisms installed within the body (or “mortice”) of a door. They consist of a sturdy, rectangular case (the mortice) that houses the intricate locking components, including the latch and deadbolt. Mortice locks are renowned for their durability and resistance to forced entry.

Replacing mortice locks:

If your existing mortice lock is damaged, outdated, or you’ve experienced a security breach, we offer efficient and reliable replacement services. We can recommend high-quality mortice locks tailored to your security needs and type of door.

Repairing mortice locks:

Mortice locks, like any mechanism, may encounter wear and tear over time. We specialise in diagnosing and repairing common issues such as jamming, misalignment, or damaged components, restoring your lock’s functionality.

Common issues with mortice locks:

Jamming or sticking: Mortice locks can jam or stick due to dirt, debris, or misalignment. Regular use and exposure to the elements can contribute to these issues.

Key not turning: If the key is difficult to turn or gets stuck, it may indicate internal issues. Worn-out components or a misaligned mechanism can be the culprits.

Misalignment: Doors settling or changes in temperature can cause the door or frame to shift, leading to misalignment issues with the mortice lock.
