Thanks for posting, Amin! You're right, it sounds like you need a new interior lock. Before we can recommend a replacement, though, we just need a bit more information. To start, can you tell me what the distance is between the screw hole centers? That will help us locate a possible replacement.

Thanks for your efficient reply Tom

The distance between the two outside screws (center to center) as I meassured is 3 11/16" approximately

Thank you for the additional information. Please take a look at our 82-218 Mortise Lock and compare it to your existing hardware. Could you use this as a replacement?
