Cottage front door lock; an update.

It was suggested be Dan O on JREF to compare the Corbin PS 350 03 05 multipoint mortice locks to Charlie’s photos showing a Corbin Euro Profile Cylinder lockset on the Cottage front door.

Mul-T-Lock (UK) are official importers of Corbin Lock Products from Italy to the UK and the Brochure linked by Dan O is in fact the same one featured on their home web site (see link below).

To get accurate information I contacted an approved agent for the above to establish if the PS 350 03 05 Euro Cylinder multipoint mortice lock with the deadbolt retracted, the spring latch disabled as per Charlie’s photo and the outside handle unattached etc. , could the other two auxiliary bolts be engaged using the internal handle only.

First problem was to explain accurately the exact configuration that existed on the front door of the cottage. The second obstacle was to convince him that I wasn’t trying to stitch him up on a bogus Insurance burglary claim. After eventually establishing my bona fides I was asked to leave it with him.

The response has arrived and this is it. Yes the two auxiliary bolts, upper and lower, can be thrown (ie. engaged) in the circumstances of the above configuration by rotating the handle upwards circa 45 degrees from a horizontal starting position. To retract the auxiliary bolts you need to reverse the action ie. rotate the handle downwards circa 45 degrees from a horizontal starting position. This is true for all of the Corbin Euro Cylinder multipoint mortice lock models in the PS 350 range.

So if the lock on the cottage front door was in fact a Corbin Euro Cylinder multipoint mortice lock from the PS 350 range then it was not necessary to use a key to ‘lock and unlock’ the door from the inside. The handle alone could ‘lock and unlock’ the front door from the inside using the auxiliary bolts; this is from a professional locksmith and approved Corbin sales and instillation agent. In this case Rudy could have come to the front door from the kitchen, pushed the handle down to open it and exited without the need to use a key.

If Charlie has any more photos of the front door showing the complete lock mechanism it would go a long way in clearing this up.
