|A bore hole is the doorknob hole that is drilled on the face of the door with a hole saw. The hole is drilled halfway through from each side. The hole saw is also used to drill the cross bore otherwise known as the latch hole. Both doorknob hole and latch holes come completed and drilled with every in stock order to help your installer install the lock at ease.|
Center to Center:
The vertical distance measured between the center-points of the two bore holes. In other words, it is the measurement from the middle of the top bore hole to the middle of the bottom bore hole. This measurement is used to determine where a bore for the deadbolt is located above the bore for the latch. This information is important to help our customers purchase the correct compatible lock if you choose to purchase them from an outside hardware store.
