I know someone out there has an old Emhart template book, or knows someone who does. A facility is reusing the locks below with new hollow metal doors, and they need a template. The existing locks are working fine and accessibility is not an issue. New locks are not in the budget. Can anyone help with the templates? The estimate on the age of these locks is late-80’s/early-90’s. If you need additional information, let me know. If you know any Emhart experts, please forward the link to them.

How about someone with a ruler and square and some gridded paper just make their own?
Good afternoon Lori: We have a bunch of these on the shelf brand new old stock. I am sending you an email with a PDF of the hole template.
I got it – thanks!
i also am looking for the Emhart templates. Any chance you can share these with me as well?
Could you please send me the Emhart templates? I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi Tara –
I’m sorry – this was about 5 years ago so I don’t have the templates, but maybe if you reply to Rich (who said he had locks on the shelf) he should get an notification of your comment.
Hello Mr. Rich
If you have still those locks old or new so can you want to sell? It will be very helpful. Thanks
Hello Rich, I seen your post about having old emhart hardware. I’m looking for a locking mortise unit like this Emhart 764-9523 US32D. The customer has one that doesn’t lock and can’t afford the newer Corbin Russwin hardware. If you have something in stock let me know. Thanks!
I may just have something, I have an archive of old corbin/emhart lock stuff here.
Hey Keith I’m looking for somewhere I can get parts for an emhart mortis lock
have done many old locks the long way,
if all the same ( or not ), and template(s) are not found,
all you need is to remove the lock(s) and use a square to take your measurements on center, horizontal & vertical, from the high side edge of the door if it is beveled or just straight if not beveled,
center, backsets, verticals/horizontal,
use painter tape on the new doors and mark your predrill holes ( 1/8 or 1/4 inch ), predrill then insert lock body into door and check alignment before final size holes are drilled,
if all the same then you can make a paper or metal template and Bob’s your uncle…
might also check/ask here
Emhart morphed into Corbin Russwin, should fit standard ANSI A156.13 prep.
The facility I spent almost thirty years in was a C/R facility, with a mix of really old iron-case mortise locks, green iron-case mortise locks, and steel-case mortise locks.
The green iron-case locks can use the same templates as the newer C/R 2000 series steel-case locks.
The only difference is that there are no trim bolt-thru holes on the iron-case locks, and the deadlatch has been moved to underneath the latch in some functions.
If they are replacing the doors, wouldn’t that be an upgrade that requires the doors to now be equipped with Levers?
Normally, yes, but not in this case.
That lock has the same templating as the ML2000 series as of 2008. I’m not sure about todays locks.
If you are looking for a Lexan plastic template for any door hardware type, mortise locks, cyls, door closers etc, give us a call. If you have the hardware, I have the template. Good luck.
In hotel where I work have old Emhart 233N locks… Can some one help me to buy similar ol or new locks or any other lock similar can replacement. Thanks
Hello..Hopefully your request have been answered. I am having a different problem but with the same mortise lock. How do I remove the inside knob off of the spindle, and then the spindle to procede with removal of the entire lockset from the door. this is very old lockset and I only came across one lockset my entire 30 years at place of employment and theres no instructions anywhere to be found. Thanks in advance.
Hi Mike –
I don’t know the answer to that one, and I doubt anyone will see your question. I’m not sure where to send you for help – sorry!
I’m sure you’ve figured this out by now, but there is a small hole in the handle, you need to use a stiff wire or strong paper clip to push the release.
I’m looking to swap my handles with levers, anyone know of any compatible ones?
