Internal mechanism of Sargent Model 81
Mortice Lock- for repair work.

If you are attempting a repair of a Sargent Model 81 mortice lock, this page is for you. It shows you what the insides should look like!


This is the sort of lock this page is about. In the image, the "inside" is to the left, and the "outside" is to the right. The door can be pulled to, to lock it, when leaving, and it opens inwards. Obviously! (When you think about any one of the three ways I said the same thing!) (Of course, if you merely pull it to, it is not locked as securely as it would be, if you had used your key to throw the bolt.)

Beware the little leaf spring I've marked with the yellow arrow... it pops off and hides in the "guts" of the lock... if it hasn't fallen, un-noticed, to the floor. But if it were easy, where would the fun be?

Here we see the bolt withdrawn.


And here we see the bolt extended.


I hope you enjoyed the page... or at least found useful!

A few words from the sponsors...

If you found this useful, please mention in fora, give it a Facebook "like", Google "Plus", or whatever. I've almost given up writing these pages, because it seems they are seldom read, and of course not every reader will use them... so... is there any point? If you want more of this stuff, help!?

Ad from page's editor: Yes.. I do enjoy compiling these things for you. I hope they are helpful. However... this doesn't pay my bills!!!

Why does this page cause a script to run? Because of the Google panels, and the code for the search button. Also, I have my web-traffic monitored for me by eXTReMe tracker. They offer a free tracker. If you want to try one, check out their site. Why do I mention the script? Be sure you know all you need to about spyware.
