Introduzione

Model: Mortise Latch (Adjustable) Vertical Lever Slot

Model Code: E2013

This fast fix is replacing an adjustable mortise latch to a sliding glass patio door. The goal is to replace the broken/damaged latch with the same model due to the possible home security risk that a broken latch poses to a home.

Note that the latch or its replacement can be lost inside the door if the fast fix is done incorrectly. If you’re unsure that you can keep the latch from being lost, ask a friend or family member for a second pair of hands.

Possible symptoms of a damaged/broken latch:

  • Considerably loose
  • Door can be forcibly opened while locked
  • Cannot be unlocked/locked
