What are Sash Locks? 

Sash locks consist of a latch, operated by a handle, and a lock operated by a key. Sash locks are usually mortised into the door, and are one of the most common lever lock styles for both interior and exterior doors.

Our sash locks are designed for use with our sprung lever handles, like the Polished Brass Straight lever lock handle shown below.
