Over half of the homes in Oak Park, River Forest, and Berwyn have antique mortise locks on inner or outer doors.
I doubt if the builders of these homes expected the locks they installed to last 75-100 years. But the locks have done just that. Now many are at the end of their life-time and parts to repair are becoming impossible to find.
Fortunately, quality replacements are available. We have been very successful replacing them with quality Emtek Mortise Locks. Many designs, color finishes and knob styles let you choose a lock you like. The inside and outside trim and the lock mechanism are solidly made and have life-time warranties.
