Door Preparation for Emtek Hardware

replacing existing locks then your door preps will most likely be correct for
Emtek Doorknobs. Just determine the backset and you're ready to order. If you're
installing locks in new doors that do not have a door prep you can follow the
instructions below. Emtek knobs are shipped with square corner strike and mortise plates. If you need rounded mortise plates you'll need to specify when ordering.
