We’ve launched our newest addition to the Tools section: exploded views. Exploded Views will contain high-resolution, exploded view/diagram PDF files for various locks. This information can be very useful for assembly instructions as well as determining missing or broken parts.

At launch, we have uploaded nearly 50 exploded views for Schlage’s L Series mortise locks, including discontinued models.

Much like the key bitting specifications, exploded views will be an ongoing, continuous project. We plan to round out the mortise locks section by the end of the year. This will include more exploded views from other manufacturers, such as Sargent and BEST. From there we plan to include other lock-related exploded views, such as exit devices and high security cylinders.
