Details: Wrap-Around three sided Mortise Lock template

This particular router template is a sample of what we can produce for mortise locks of almost any configuration. This template is a 3-sided “Wrap-Around” style so the template wraps around the door edge and clamps flat to both door faces using your own clamps. There are no nails used to affix the template to the door, only your own clamps so no holes to fill. Using your router you can produce the door edge mortise and the door face prep mortises in the same setup without removing the template. Centerlines or specified offsets of the lock body mortise to the door face mortise are produced as required by the lock manufacturer. In this particular sample template the mortises produced are as follows:

Edge Prep: finish or shallow mortise is 1” x 5-1/4” mortise (mortising without the red block-off tabs in place) and deep pocket mortise of 1” x 3-/12” by the depth required when (mortising between the red block-off tabs). Using your router to produce the deep pocket for the lock body will require an extra-long router bit to finish out the pocket, click here to see our 5-1/2” long bit:LRB-2 Extra Long Router Bit

 Door Face Prep: 2” x 4-1/4” (when mortising with the white plastic insert removed) and 1-1/2” x 3-1/2” when mortising with the white insert in place). This particular template has the same door face prep on both sides of the door.

This template is also adjustable for 1-3/4” and 1-3/8” door thickness but can be produced to accommodate most any door thickness upon request. To see more standard 3-sided templates click here: More 3-sided templates
