7-1/2" Height Solid Brass Keyed Entry Pocket Door Mortise Lock
did the job
I needed some privacy and security to a den. Found a lock for a pocket door impossible to find locally. This product is well made and looks great. The keys are "grown up' ones, not tiny little luggage types.
Not an installation job for a newbie do it yourselfer though. The handy man who installed it took quite a bit of time to do it, but with patience it got done.
Worth every penny.

Good Lock, Good Look
This lock is one of very few available on the market that provides security for an interior pocket or sliding door. The lock is made with parts that are hefty enough to stand up to the demand of regular use. The sliding door track that supports the door is an important component to provide ease of use with this lockset. This lock was specified at two interior location of a project that my company is currently working on. The lockset satisfied the requirements that he designer and owner were hoping for in areas where a traditional swing door was not practical.

Fourth time's the charm
After receiving the 4th unit, and piecing together parts from the former three, I now have a lock set that works. The first unit did not have the correct custom key and when installed, the inside thumb lock would lock the door but bound up and would not unlock the door. The second had a custom key but it was not properly cut so it would not work, and the mechanism also locked the door from the inside but would not unlock it. The third unit had a properly keyed lock cylinder, but still would not unlock from the inside. The fourth unit had a wrong cylinder, my door is 1 3/4 and the fourth lock was for a 1 3/8 thick door, but good news, the door could be unlocked from the inside and so I kept the 3rd lock cylinder and returned the rest. By the way, the 4th unit cylinder was not only for the thinner door, but it was keyed wrong. I spend 4 times the purchase price for my carpenter to install and reinstall the unit 4 times.
If I had received a working properly keyed unit I would have rated the product 5 stars, It looks great and when it works it works great.
