What is a Tubular Mortice Latch?

Tubular mortice latches are used on internal doors where locking is not required. 

They can be fitted with any of our sprung lever handles, including our Pewter Avon lever on rose shown below (33874/S).

Components Explained

Sprung Lever Handle - our sprung lever handles have a very strong spring incorporated into the boss and rose backplate which makes them ideal for use with old or existing latches.

Standard Tubular Mortice Latch - designed to be used with any of our sprung lever handles, these latches are mortised into the door and screw fixed in.

Split Spindle - a standard split spindle which is suitable for use on doors up to 44mm thick. For thicker doors we can supply longer spindles so please get in touch if this is required.

Receiver Plate - screw fixed to the door, this plate is the receiving end of the tubular mortice latch.

Male/Female Bolt-through Fixings - the male and female parts of each component screw together to give a tight fixing to the door. Wood screws are also included with this set.
