Mortise Locksets

Hi Brian,

I am in training all week and have been catching up by watching the recordings. While watching week 3 session 1 I came up with a question.

During the class I think you mention that with a mortise lockset that sometimes a strike with two keepers is used to allow for the dead bolt and dead latch. We had a locksmith tell us that it was better to swap out the lockset with a cylindrical lockset and install a plate to cover the hole left from removing the mortise lockset.

Was that correct?

Thanks
