FF: Sharpie Seal

Ian Baren of Katonah Architectural Hardware sent me today’s Fixed-it Friday photo.  This mortise lock is on a very fancy clothing store, and apparently it was an aesthetic problem for someone that the gasketing did not continue down the lock face.  So they drew it in with a Sharpie!  You’d think that if they were going to go to the trouble, they would have used a straight-edge!

    Or did it use to be there??

    See the jagged edges top and bottom

    Not casting stones. I’ve done that on a 613 kick plate with 626 screws.

    This is a good laugh and harmless, too. Someone just has a minor OCD. Who wants to tell them it’s rubbing off and they forgot to do the latch?

    Being perfectly honest, whomever thought of and/or did it is either silly or stupid.

    Send me an order for a Black Powder coated strip face plate and bolt.
    It will look much nicer.
