It’s a Union Mortice lock. Google that and can find what you’re looking for. Better yet, just get a locksmith to make a key for the current lock. Most states field service locksmiths have been considered essential the whole way thru this. Mask and PPE is standard issue now days.
A customer bought a building with a bunch of Best lever handles installed. The previous owner pulled all the cores when they moved out and took the tailpieces (throw members) with them. I need to put in new cores but I need to find replacement tailpieces. I’m looking online and it seems everyone has a different style for sale (like this at CLK or this one). I don’t want to show up with the wrong ones. I’m installing 6 pin cores. Any help?
I think the good brand ones have their names on them, Best, Schlage, etc.. It’s the more generic brands that don’t have any markings, like General Lock, KSP, etc.. Could be wrong, hard to say, there probably are minute differences between them that a real lock sleuth could figure out. Some people want to pay the premium for the brands, others dont. Some people try to pass the unbranded stuff off as the “real deal” though I’m sure.
