E2014 Adjustment screw not working

by Alan

I just replaced my old mortice lock on my patio door with a new E2014 and it fits nicely. However the adjustment screw does not extend or retract the latch. Is this a common problem? Is it fixable? Thanks and Regards, Alan


Hi Alan;

The adjustment screw does not move the latch hook all the way in and out, it just moves it by 1/8 inch to help it hook on.

A lot of times people just put washers behind the hasp mounted on the door jam to space it out a little further to do the same thing.

The adjustment screw does not get used very much/b>
