The unit isn’t quite the same as the older Mortise lock sets as they are a bit smaller. This requires to installer to either cut into the doors edge so that the loak set further into the door by a quarter to five sixteenths or enlarge the spindle and keyholes. Also they are made cheaper and therefore not the quality of the older lock sets. The set replaced was installed in 1946 when this house was built but broke and had to be forced open removing the knobs and spindle and hitting a 2X4 Placed over the area of the spindle thereby breaking the bolting mechanism and not damaging the door.

Gave my 14 y.o. grandson joy to find that with a little whittling and an electric drill he could replace the broken doorknob on his bedroom door :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jefferson222 easy to install & look authentic
only complaint - set screw on knob is flimsy & knob falls
off easily - also would like to see in other finishes - like
aged bronze - the bright brass shows a lot of fingerprints

I'm renovating an old house and tried to fix the spring in an old one of these (100-years old), which never held. These fit perfectly & look great! I bought four of 'em.

As the title says, these actually do what they claim, and look great doing it. Easy-mount, smooth action.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rustie Good Fit; good value
I replaced 80 year old locks; fit quite good, had to enlarge only one dimension by about 1/16 inch. Lock looks good, works smoothly
