Marks USA Offers New Auto-Reverse Mortise Lock
MARKS USA in Amityville, N.Y., has introduced a new auto-reverse feature on its patent-pending 5 series mortise lock, enabling the installer to reverse the handing of the lockset without removing the cover. It can go from left hand to right hand and not compromise the position of the internal lock parts in five simple steps.

The grade 1 mortise locks are BHMA-certified and meet ANSI specifications. The mortise locks are through-bolted for proper alignment and ease of installation, have self-adjusting spindles and independent lever support springs. The locks are available with an ever-increasing variety of hardware.
