Learn the basic woodwork skills to enable you to secure your home with standard latchs, mortice locks and Yale fittings.
Practice the fitting process from measuring, marking out, drilling holes and chiselling out for the ironmongery and receivers.
Learn how to fit a standard door latch and handles, a five lever mortice lock and handle and a Yale-style night latch.
This practical day workshop will provide a firm knowledge base from which learners can tackle other styles of lock, such as a bathroom type lock.
Exercises will be worked on door blocks held in a wood vice, but the day will also include teaching methods of holding the door fast while in situ and on blocks if the door is removed.
All tools and materials included.
