Mortise Lock Size


I'm having a hard time finding a replacement mortise lock for my sliding glass door. The door is old (60's installation most likely) and my main problem is that when I tried to take the old lock out of the door, it fell inside the door so I have nothing to measure!


I tried the E 2013/E 2014 and they are too tall. The lock was definately oval in shape but the 3 11/16 screw holes are taller than what I need.

Any ideas which one I need?

Angle it in

This door usually uses an E2014 although either should work since your lever spins 360 degrees.. The lock needs to be angled in. Grab the hook with vice-grip pliers. For extra safety, insert a screw or screwdriver into the bottom screw hole. Tilt the lock and insert one end at a time. once the whole lock is inside the frame, bring it back in line with the hole.
