4900 Heavy Duty Deadlatch provides flexible traffic control and easy installation


Flexibility of traffic control and easy installation is offered by 4900 Series Heavy Duty Deadlatches. A key-controlled bolt hold-back feature allows for two-way traffic for applications which require free entrance at certain times and exit-only at other times. This allows a “locked” entrance to be used as an exit by visitors already in the building. 1-3/4″ [44.5 mm] minimum door thickness required. Interchangeable, without stile modification, with any MS1850S deadbolt of same backset and faceplate shape. Also retrofits to existing 4510 and discontinued 4700 Deadlatch preparations.


Turn key or operate handle or paddle to retract spring-loaded latchbolt. To hold bolt retracted, push it in and secure by reverse turn of key. Lock accepts any standard 1″ length, 1-5/32″ diameter mortise cylinder with MS® cam such as the 4036 Mortise Cylinder or thumbturn such as the 4066 Thumbturn, available separately. Lock accepts cylinder from either or both sides.

  • Case: Steel with corrosion-resistant plating. Measures 7/8″ x 5-13/16″ x depth. Depth varies by backset. Screw-fastened tube spacer brackets allow for cleaner removal when tab mounting.
  • Bolt Holdback: While bolt is held fully retracted, a reverse turn of the key retains the bolt, allowing the door to be free swinging
  • Latchbolt: Solid brass. Handing is easily reversible without special tools. Measures 5/8″ x 1″ x 5/8″ throw
  • Auxiliary Linchpin: Stainless steel. Deadlocks latch bolt to prevent “loiding” or case-knife entry
