Hi guys, my name's Darrel. I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk and thanks for tuning in and having a look at this video.
Today we've got the Legge 3751 Mortise Sash lock for a bathroom. It's a bathroom sash lock. Now, what exactly is this and how does it work etc.?
So let's get a little bit more information on it. It's designed to go into a bathroom type lock or a toilet, where you need a bit of privacy. What you have at the top here, is you have an 8 millimetre follower, that's where the spindle will go for a handle. So you'd have a handle which would operate the latch there, like that. But at the bottom here, you'd have a turn. And that turn will allow you to throw this bolt in and out, by turning this here.
You'll find that you can get furniture that are called bathroom furniture and you'll see that there's a turn at the bottom to allow you to throw this bolt out. Most of that furniture, by the way, on the outside will have some sort of slit or a little space that will allow you to turn in the event of an emergency. Should you want to get in, that you'll be able to get in from the outside. But on the outside you'll have some sort of turn device.
Now this particular type of lock is available in either a brass finish, the one I have here is the silver finish. It's a nice polished finish there. The actual lock is available in two different case depths. This is the 2.5 inch, but it's also available in a 3 inch, so it's going to be half-an-inch, or a little bit more.
I'm going to give you some measurements now, and then we'll have a chat about the lock a little bit more in greater detail. So, what have we got here now? Because this is the 2.5 inch, I can give you the backset measurement, and that's the distance from there to there. And that, on this particular lock, is 44 millimetres. The PZ measurement and that's the distance from the centre of the handle there to the centre of where that spindle is going to be, is 57 millimetres. The fore-end width, that's the width here, is 22.5 millimetres and the fore-end height, that's the height from there to there, is 153 millimetres.
The actual lock's height, from there to there is 102 millimetres and the width, or the thickness, there is 13 millimetres.
The handing on this now, as you can see, this latch is obviously operated that way, so if the door was opening outwards, that would be the right configuration. If you wanted to change the handing, in other words, put the latch round the other way, you're going to need to undo the screws here, to allow the cover off, and then you'll be able to turn that. Be careful of springs guys because they can fly all over the place.
Top tip from me is that, when you get this cover off, use your mobile phone and take a photo and then should a spring go flying anywhere, then at least then you'll know where to put it back.
It comes as standard with its keep here. It's a lovely finish on this. Beautiful finish on this keep here. Again, it's simple. This isn't all about security, it's about passive security, just so you can have a bit of privacy in the bathroom. And obviously, then, it comes with some fixings as well.
You'll also see as well, you've got some holes here, and those holes there allow for pierce through fixings, or pierce-through handles. Bolt-through handles to allow you to fix them. Now, what I will do, I'll just get my Vernier gauge there and let me zero that in and change that over.
Listen, I'll get the centres there because, if you're looking for a set of handles then it's nice to know what those centres will be. And I'm getting a measurement there, guys, of around about 38 millimetres. So if you've chosen a particular type of handle that you want to use on this, that have got bolt-through furniture, that's the sort of centres that you'll be looking at from there.
