Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION


1. Fields of the invention



[0001] The present invention relates to a lock with a long-travel deadbolt, and more particularly, to a lock whose deadbolt travels at least 22 mm by one-time rotation of the core so as to enhance convenience of operation and safety of the lock.

2. Descriptions of Related Art



[0002] A lock is installed to a door, and the lock is controlled to be locked and unlocked to obtain safety and privacy features. For the deadbolt of the lock, the deadbolt is controlled by the core to lock the door. The core is rotatable by using a key or a knob by the users to prevent the lock from being unlocked from inside or outside by unauthorized persons.

[0003] The deadbolt of existed door locks can travel up to 15 mm by one-time rotation of the core. The requirement of the travel distance of the deadbolt is at least 22 mm to avoid the door from being opened by damaging the door frame. Therefore, some existed locks need to rotate the core multiple times to reach the travel distance required. However, it takes time and is inconvenient for the users to rotate the core multiple times.

[0004] The present invention is intended to provide a lock to eliminate the drawbacks mentioned above.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION



[0005] The present invention relates to a lock with a long-travel deadbolt, and comprises a case having a core recess and a deadbolt recess, wherein the core recess includes a first guide member and defining a loop-shaped rail. A driving member has an end fixed to a deadbolt which is movably in the deadbolt recess. The driving member has a slide slot in which the first guide member is slidably received therein. The driving member has a second guide member on an end face thereof. A third notch is defined in the bottom of the driving member and located at the rail. An extension plate has an end thereof eccentrically and pivotably connected to the second guide member. The extension plate includes an extension slot which extends toward two opposite extension directions which are located corresponding to the slide slot. An intermediate point is formed at a turning position of the two opposite extension directions, and the first guide member is slidable within the extension slot. When in an unlock position, the deadbolt is located in the deadbolt recess and the first guide member is located at one inner end of the slide slot and the extension slot. When in a middle position, the deadbolt is located at the intermediate point and partially protrudes from the deadbolt recess. The extension plate is located at the rail. When in a locked position, the deadbolt protrudes from the deadbolt recess. The extension plate is in contact with the first guide member so that the first guide member is located at the extension slot and the slide slot that is located opposite to the deadbolt.

[0006] Preferably, a restriction plate includes a first guide hole, and the first guide member extends through the first guide hole. The case includes a third positioning wall which includes a second positioning portion formed on the underside thereof. A resilient unit is biased between the restriction plate and the third positioning wall.

[0009] Preferably, the case includes a latch bolt recess and an installation recess. The case includes an installation hole defined in a Z-axis of the installation recess. The latch bolt recess includes a latch bolt which includes a head, a passive member and a spring. The passive member is fixed to the head, and the spring is biased between the inside of the latch bolt recess and the passive member. When in a closed position, the spring extends to protrude the head out from the case. When in an opened position, the spring is compressed so that the head does not protrude out from the case. The installation recess includes a top rotation member which includes a first transmission member, a first hole located corresponding to the installation hole, and a first contact portion. The installation recess includes a first positioning portion located corresponding to the distal end of the latch bolt recess. The first positioning portion includes a first resilient member which biases the first contact portion. When the first transmission member is assigned to the top rotation member and is rotated by the top rotation member, the first contact portion compresses the first resilient member and pushes the passive member so that the spring is compressed and the head does not protrude out from the case. When in a closed position, the first resilient member bounces back and contacts the first contact portion. The first transmission member does not contact the passive member. The top rotation member includes a pivotal member which is pivotably connected to a transmission plate, and the transmission plate includes a guide slot to which the second guide member is mounted. When in the locked position, the top rotation member is located at the closed position. When in the unlocked position, the second guide member is located at the top inner end of the guide slot. When in the opened position, the second guide member is located at the bottom inner end of the guide slot.

When the first transmission member and the second transmission member are assigned to the top rotation member or the bottom rotation member, and are rotated, the first contact portion or the second contact portion compresses the first resilient member and pushes the passive member so that the spring is compressed and the head does not protrude out from the case. When in the closed position, the first resilient member bounces back and contacts the first contact portion and the second contact portion so that the first transmission member the second contact portion do not contact the passive member.

[0011] Preferably, the latch bolt recess includes a positioning recess, a connection recess and the installation recess defined in communication with each other along an X-axis of the latch bolt recess. A fifth positioning wall is formed on one end of the X-axis of the latch bolt recess. The positioning recess is defined between the fifth positioning wall and the second positioning wall. The case includes a connection groove defined in one end of the fifth positioning wall. A first connector protrudes from the other end of the fifth positioning wall. The second positioning wall includes a second connector which is located corresponding to the first connector. The connection recess is defined between the first connector and the second connector. The passive member is engaged with the connection groove and includes a bent portion extending from each of two ends thereof. Each bent portion includes a through hole. The latch bolt includes a shank which extends through the through holes and is connected to the head. The shank includes a positioning ring mounted thereto which is located between the bent portions. The spring is located between the positioning ring and the bent of the head so that the positioning ring is located in the positioning recess and biased by the spring and contacts the first and second connectors.

[0012] Preferably, the first resilient member is a torsion spring, and the torsion spring includes two legs which respectively contact a wall of the installation recess and first and second contact portions.

[0013] Preferably, the core recess includes a core received therein. The core has a cam which is rotatable along the rail.

[0014] The advantages of the present invention are that, thanks to the extension plate, the first and second guide members, and the extension slot defined in the extension plate, when the lock is operated from the unlocked position to the middle position, the core is only rotated a half way of the total rotational distance. The extension plate is still located at the rail and can be operated by the core, so that when the core is rotated to its dead-end position, by pushing the extension plate to increase the travel distance of the deadbolt. The travel distance of the deadbolt is up to 22 mm by one-time rotation of the core so as to meet the requirement of the travel distance of the deadbolt, and also enhance the convenience of operation and safety feature of the lock.

[0015] The present invention will become more obvious from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings which show, for purposes of illustration only, a preferred embodiment in accordance with the present invention.

[0022] The present invention may use different components to be installed to the lock so as to obtain different functions. In the first embodiment, the case 1 has more functions and can be used to the gate door.

[0023] Function 1: the latch bolt 2 locking the lock.

[0024] The latch bolt recess 13 includes a latch bolt 2 which includes a head 21, a passive member 22 and a spring 23. The passive member 22 is fixed to the head 21, and the spring 23 is biased between the inside of the latch bolt recess 13 and the passive member 22. When in a closed position, the spring 23 extends to protrude the head 21 out from the case 1. When in an opened position, the spring 23 is compressed so that the head 21 does not protrude out from the case 1. The installation recess 16 includes a top rotation member 24 and a bottom rotation member 25.

The bottom rotation member 25 includes a second transmission member 251, a second hole 252 which is located corresponding to the installation hole 162, and a second contact portion 253. The first positioning portion 161 includes a first resilient member 26 which biases the first contact portion 243. In one embodiment, the first resilient member 26 is a torsion spring, and the torsion spring includes two legs which respectively contact a wall of the installation recess 16 and first and second contact portions 243, 253. The torsion spring provides pivotal force.

[0025] In order to control the rotation of the top and bottom rotation members 24, 25, a handle 27 is installed to a first hole 242 and a second hole 252, so that the top and bottom rotation members 24, 25 do not drive mutually. The two respective handles 27 are installed individually and do not drive mutually.

[0026] Regarding to the transmission and positioning of the latch bolt 2 and the passive member 22, the latch bolt recess 13 includes a positioning recess 136, a connection recess 137 and the installation recess 16 defined in communication with each other along the X-axis of the latch bolt recess 13. A fifth positioning wall 138 is formed on one end of the X-axis of the latch bolt recess 13. The positioning recess 136 is defined between the fifth positioning wall 138 and the second positioning wall 132. The case 1 includes a connection groove 1381 defined in one end of the fifth positioning wall 138. A first connector 1382 protrudes from the other end of the fifth positioning wall 138. The second positioning wall 132 includes a second connector 1321 which is located corresponding to the first connector 1382. The connection recess 137 is defined between the first connector 1382 and the second connector 1321. The passive member 22 is engaged with the connection groove 1381 and includes a bent portion 221 extending from each of two ends thereof. Each bent portion 221 includes a through hole 222. The latch bolt 2 includes a shank 223 which extends through the through holes 222 and is connected to the head 21.

[0027] The first transmission member 241 is installed as disclosed in Fig. 6 which is a view from inside of the door, when the users rotate the handle 27 and rotates the top rotation member 24, the first transmission member 241 compresses the first resilient member 26 and contacts the passive member 22, so that the spring 23 is compressed and the head 21 does not protrudes out from the case 1. As shown in Fig. 7 which is a view from outside of the door, the second transmission member 251 is installed as disclosed in Fig. 7. When the users rotate the other handle 27 and rotates the bottom rotation member 25, the second transmission member 251 compresses the first resilient member 26 and contacts the passive member 22, so that the spring 23 is compressed and the head 21 does not protrudes out from the case 1. As the head 21 does not protrudes out from the case 1, the lock is in the opened position and the door can be opened. When in the closed position as shown in Fig. 4, the first resilient member 26 bounces back and contacts the first contact portion 243 and the second contact portion 253. The first transmission member 241 and the second transmission plate 251 do not contact the passive member 22. The head 21 of the latch bolt 2 protrudes out from the case 1 and is inserted into the door frame. The door cannot be opened by rotating the handles 27 form inside or from outside.

[0028] Function 2: preventing the latch bolt 2 from being shifted to open the door.

[0029] In order to prevent the latch bolt 2 from being shifted to the opened position to open the door by rotating the handle 27 from outside, or to prevent the latch bolt 2 from being directly shifted to the opened position to open the door from outside, the case 1 has a first restriction member 141 in the restriction recess 14. The restriction recess 14 can be installed to the first part 11 but not limited thereto. The restriction recess 14 includes a restriction bolt 3 which has a restriction member 31 and a slide 32. The slide 32 includes a first shifting recess 321 located corresponding to the first restriction member 141. A transmission block 322 is located on the Z-axis of the slide 32. The slide 32 includes a stop face 323 formed on an end face thereof which is located corresponding to the transmission block 322. The second positioning wall 132 includes a second restriction member 1322 which is pivotably connected to a stop plate 33 which has a pivotal portion 331, a transmission portion 332, a stop portion 333 and a guiding portion 334. The pivotal portion 331 is located between the transmission portion 332 and the stop portion 333, and is pivotably connected to the second restriction member 1322. The transmission portion 332 is located corresponding to the second positioning wall 132, and has a contact portion 3321 protruding toward the first fixing recess 134. The top rotation member 24 includes a push block 244 that is able to be rotated from the closed position to the opened position to push the transmission portion 332. And the push block 244 pushes the stop plate 33 to pivot from a stop position to a non-stop position. The stop portion 333 is located corresponding to the first slot 133 and the fifth positioning wall 138. The guiding portion 334 is located corresponding to the slide 32. The guiding portion 334 includes an inclined second shifting recess 335 and an inclined third shifting recess 336. The transmission block 322 is engaged with the second shifting recess 335, and the first restriction member 141 is engaged with the third shifting recess 336. The first fixing recess 134 includes a second resilient member 34 whose one end contacts the contact portion 3321. The second fixing recess 135 includes a third resilient member 35 whose one end contacts the stop face 323. In one embodiment, the second and third resilient members 34, 35 are both torsion springs to provide pivotal forces.

[0030] When in the non-stop position as shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the third resilient member 35 pushes the restriction member 31 to protrude out from the case 1 via the stop face 323, and makes the transmission block 322 and the first restriction member 141 respectively contact the second and third shifting recesses 335, 336 to let the stop portion 333 not to protrude from the latch bolt recess 13. Alternatively, as shown in Fig. 6, the third resilient member 35 is compressed to make the restriction member 31 not to protrude out from the case 1, and makes the transmission block 322 and the first restriction member 141 are not being pushed. The transmission portion 332 is pushed by the push block 244 of the top rotation member 24 to make the stop portion 333 not to protrude from the latch bolt recess 13. When in the stop position as shown in Fig. 8, the third resilient member 35 is compressed and the restriction member 31 does not protrude out from the case 1. That is to say, the door frame does not have a hole for the restriction bolt 3, and the door frame has a hole that is located corresponding to the latch bolt 2, so that when the door is closed to the door frame, the latch bolt 2 is located at the closed position, and the restriction member 31 does not protrude out from the case 1. The transmission block 322 and the first restriction member 141 are not pushed, and the stop plate 33 is pushed by the recovery force from the second resilient member 34 to pivot the stop plate 33 by the contact portion 3321, so that the stop portion 333 protrudes into the latch bolt recess 13 when in the closed position. The latch bolt 2 cannot be retracted into the latch bolt recess 13 by neither a force applied from outside of the case 1, not by rotating the handle 27 to rotate the bottom rotation member 25 from outside of the door. The only way is to rotate the handle 27 from the inside of the door to let the push block 244 of the top rotation member 24 push the transmission portion 332 to remove the stop portion 333 from the latch bolt recess 13 to shift the latch bolt 2 from the closed position to the opened position.

[0032] In order to enhance the locking feature of the deadbolt 8, the core recess 17 includes a first guide member 178, a restriction plate 4, an engaging member 5, an extension plate 6 and a stop plate 7. The core recess 17 includes a core 18 via the core hole 176, the core 18 includes a cam 181 which is rotatable. The range of the rotation of the cam 181 defines a loop-like rail "R". The core 18 includes a keyhole in each of two ends thereof. A knob may be connected to the core 18 at the inside of the door to directly rotate the cam 181, and the core 18 has a keyhole at the outside of the door for accepting a key inserted therein.

[0033] The bottom of the restriction plate 4 is located at the rail "R". The first guide member 178 extends through a first guide hole 41 defined in the restriction plate 4 so as to balance and restrict the moveable range of the restriction plate 4. A resilient unit 42 is biased between the restriction plate 4 and the bottom of the third positioning wall 172. The resilient unit 42 is connected to the second positioning portion 173 and the resilient direction of the resilient unit 42 is correspondent to the first guide hole 41. The restriction plate 4 includes at least one engaging member 43.

[0034] One end of the driving member 5 is connected to the deadbolt 8 which is movable in the deadbolt recess 15 and is stopped by the stop wall 177. The driving member 5 includes a slide slot 51 in which the first guide member 178 extends.

[0053] Function 5: preventing the bottom rotation member 25 from being rotated by operation of the handle 27 at outside of the case 1.

[0054] As shown in Figs. 16 to 18, a second embodiment of the lock is disclosed, and the differences between the first and second embodiments are that the restriction recess 14 includes a lock block 36, and does not have the restriction bolt 3 and the stop plate 33 as mentioned in function 2. Therefore, the function 5 and the function 2 cannot be existed simultaneously, but can be existed with the functions 1, 3 and 4. The second embodiment is used to the door of bathrooms, kitchens and hallways. The core 18 may have a keyhole in each of two ends thereof, alternatively, a knob can be connected to the core located at the inside of the door so as to directly rotate the cam 181. A key is used to be inserted into the keyhole from the outside of the door, depending on practical needs. The case 1 includes a bore 142 which is located corresponding to the restriction recess 14, and the bore 142 is defined in the second part 12 and includes the lock block 36 slidably received therein. The lock block 36 includes a control bar 361, a passage 362, an engaging portion 363 and an inclined portion 364. The control bar 361 protrudes beyond the bore 142. The first restriction member 142 extends through the passage 362. The bottom rotation member 25 includes an engaging notch 254 which is located corresponding to the engaging portion 363. The top rotation member 24 includes a push portion 246 which is located corresponding to the inclined portion 364. As shown in Fig. 17, when in the closed position, the lock block 36 is located at a first position where the lock block 36 slides to engage the engaging portion 363 with the engaging notch 254. Therefore, the operation of the handle 27 on the outside of the door cannot rotate the bottom rotation member 25 to position the latch bolt 2 at the unlocked position. As shown in Fig. 18, the top rotation member 24 is rotated by operating the handle 27 on the inside of the door. Alternatively, the top rotation member 24 can also be rotated by using the core 18 at the inside or outside to rotate the core 181 to rotate the top rotation member 24 by the transmission plate 28. Therefore, the top rotation member 24 is rotated from the closed position to the opened position, the push portion 246 contacts the inclined portion 364 to drive the lock block 36 to a second position such that the engaging portion 363 is disengaged from the engaging notch 254. The lock block 36 releases the bottom rotation member 25, and the latch bolt 2 is located at the opened position.

[0055] In this embodiment, because there is no restriction bolt 3, so that the case 1 includes the first hole located corresponding to the latch bolt recess 13, and the strike plate 19 having the third hole located corresponding to the deadbolt recess 15.

[0056] Function 6: unlocking feature in emergency.

[0057] As shown in Fig. 19 which shows the third embodiment of the present invention, wherein the differences between the first and third embodiments are that the restriction plate 4 includes a restriction part 44 that is installed to the existed restriction plate 4. The second part 12 has a longitudinal slot 163 in which the restriction part 44 slides. The transmission plate 28 includes an engaging recess 282 located corresponding to the restriction part 44. The restriction part 44 has a sufficient length so that the engaging recess 282 can mount to the restriction part 44. The engaging recess 282 has a space that is larger than the restriction part 44, and engaging recess 282 includes an inclined guide face 283 which is located corresponding to the position where the restriction part 44 compresses the resilient unit 42. In other words, the deadbolt 8 is located at the locked position, and the latch bolt 2 is located at the closed position. When the core 18 does not rotate the cam 181, the users can operate the handle 27 on the inside of the door to rotate the top rotation member 24 to rotate the closed position to the opened position. As shown in Fig. 20, the transmission plate 28 operates the restriction part 44 to drive the restriction plate 4 to compress the resilient unit 42 by the guide face 283. The restriction plate 4 moves to disengage the engaging member 43 from the second notch 54. The guide slot 281 pulls the second guide member 52 to move the deadbolt 8 to the unlocked position, and the latch bolt 2 moves to the opened position as shown in Fig. 21. The embodiment can be used on emergency doors so that the latch bolt 2 and the deadbolt 8 can be unlocked and opened by operating the handle on the inside of the door without using the key.

[0058] Besides, if the cam 181 is rotated by rotating the core 18, the lock can also be set to the unlocked position and the opened position.

[0059] It is noted that the function 6 can be combined with the functions 1 to 3, however, in one embodiment, the third embodiment can also be used with different type of case instead of the case 1 as disclosed.

[0060] Function 7: locking the handle 27 at the locked position.

[0061] As shown in Figs. 22 to 24, the fourth embodiment is disclosed, and the differences between the first and fourth embodiments are that the driving member 5 is not connected with the deadbolt 8, so that the embodiment cannot perform function 3. As shown in Figs. 22, 23, the driving member 5 has a lug 57, and the transmission plate 28 has a protrusion 284 that is located corresponding to the lug 57. It is noted that in this embodiment, the handle 27 can only be installed to the top rotation member 24, and the installation hole 162 of the bottom rotation member 25 is closed. Alternatively, each of the top and bottom rotation members 24, 25 can be connected with a handle 27, and the two handles 27 have to be rotated simultaneously. As shown in Fig. 24, when in the locked position, the engaging member 43is engaged with the second notch 54, and the protrusion 284 contacts the bottom of the lug 57 so that when trying to rotate the top rotation member 24, the top rotation member 24 is restricted by the protrusion 284 and the lug 57, and cannot be rotated. Even if there is a handle 27 installed to the outside of the door, because the two handles 27 are co-rotated, so that the latch bolt 2 cannot move to the opened position because the top rotation member 24 cannot be rotated. The only way is to rotate the cam 181 by the core 18 by moving the restriction plate 4 to disengage the engaging member 43 from the second notch 54, and to move the driving member 5 to the unlocked position to separate the protrusion 284 from the lug 57. Therefore, the latch bolt 2 can move to the opened position.

[0062] Function 8: deadbolt 8 having a roller 83.

[0063] As shown in Figs. 25 to 29, the fifth embodiment is disclosed, wherein the differences between the embodiments 1 and 5 are that the fifth embodiment can only perform functions 3 and 4, and cannot perform function 1 and 2. The deadbolt 8 includes a roller 83 and can be used for doors of storage rooms or plants. The deadbolt 8 including the roller 83 does not necessarily used in the case 1 as disclosed, different types of cases can also be used. This embodiment includes only the functions 3 and 4. The driving member 5 has a first slot 58 and a transverse slot 581. The driving member 5 includes two channels 582 defined in a distal end thereof. The driving member 5 is connected to a first spring 583, a second spring 584 and at least one positioning rod 585. The first spring 583 is located corresponding to the first slot 58.

[0064] The deadbolt 8 further includes a body 81, an insertion member 82, the roller 83 and a slide 84, wherein the body 81 has a fixing slot 811 to which a distal end of the driving member 5 is connected. The body 81 includes a receiving space 812 located opposite to one end of the driving member 5. The body 81 includes at least one fixing hole 813 which communicates with the fixing slot 811.

[0065] The insertion member 82 is received in the fixing hole 813 and includes two connection portions 821 which are respectively inserted into the channels 582. Each connection portion 821 has a through hole 822. An accommodating room 823 is formed between the two connection portions 821 so as to receive the roller 83 therein. A pin 831 extends through the roller 83, and two ends of the pin 831 are fixed with the two through holes 822. The insertion member 82 includes a guide rod 824 protruding therefrom which is located corresponding to the transverse slot 581. The second spring 584 biases the end face of the insertion member 82 that is located opposite to the roller 83. In order to allow the insertion member 82 to slide in the fixing slot 811 stably, the body 81 includes at least one guide way 814 defined in the inside of the fixing slot 811 and located at the path that the roller 83 moves between non-transmission position and transmission position. The insertion member 82 includes ridges 825 which slide on the guide ways 814.

[0066] The slide 84 is restricted by the positioning rods 585. In one embodiment, the slide 84 includes a first receiving notch 841 defined in the bottom thereof, and an extension portion 842 extending from the top thereof. A second receiving notch 843 is formed at the lower end of the extension portion 842. The positioning rods 585 are respectively engaged with the first receiving notch 841, the lateral side of the extension portion 842 that faces the roller 83, and the second receiving notch 843 at the non-transmission position. Therefore, the slide 84 can only be moved longitudinally.

[0067] The slide 84 includes a first guide pin 844 and a guide hole 845. The first guide pin 844 extends through the first slot 58. The slide 84 includes an inclined surface 846 so that the first spring 583 biases the inclined surface 846 so that the slide 84 is movable along the first slot 58. The guide hole 845 includes an extension slot 847 and an inclined slot 848. The extension slot 847 is located at the top end of the guide hole 845 and located corresponding to the transverse slot 581. The inclined slot 848 communicates with the extension slot 847 and inclinedly extends toward a direction away from the roller 83. The slide 84 has a transmission rod 849 extending toward a direction away from the roller 83, and the transmission rod 849 is located at the rail "R" when the lock is at the unlocked position.

[0068] In order to balance the movement of the slid 84, the driving member 5 has a second slot 586 which is located corresponding to the first slot 58. The slide 84 has a second guide pin 8441 which is movable in the second slot 586.

[0069] As shown in Figs. 29 and 29, when the deadbolt 8 is located at the locked position or the unlocked position, the deadbolt 8 is able to perform the function 3. When in the non-transmission position, as shown in Figs. 28 and 30, the slide 84 is biased by the first spring 583 so that the first guide pin 844 is located the inner bottom end of the first slot 58. The insertion member 82 is biased by the second spring 584 and the roller 83 protrudes beyond the receiving space 812. When in the transmission position, as shown in Fig. 31, only the driving member 5, the deadbolt 8 and the core 18 are disclosed for clarity purpose, the transmission rod 849 is pushed by the cam 181 so that the slide 84 and the inclined slot 848 move toward the top of the first slot 58. The guide rod 824 contacts the inclined slot 848 to drive the slide 84 and the roller 83 to move along the transverse slot 581 and toward a direction opposite to the roller 83. Therefore, the roller 83 does not protrude beyond the receiving space 812. The purpose is that when in the unlocked position as shown in Fig. 27, the roller 83 partially protrudes beyond the case 1 so that by rotating the cam 181 clockwise to move the transmission rod 849, the roller 83 does not protrude beyond the case 1 so that the door can be opened and closed. Because in the non-transmission position, insertion member 82 is not restricted, and is only biased by the second spring 584 to press the roller 83 along a direction perpendicular to the axis of the roller 83, and this also makes the roller 83 be moved into the receiving space 812. Therefore, by a force applied to the door, the door can be opened or closed.

[0070] As shown in Fig. 32, for the receiving box 9 installed to the door frame, the receiving box 9 includes a receiving hole 91 that is located corresponding to the deadbolt 8. The receiving hole 91 includes two resilient members 92 received therein. Each receiving member 92 includes an installation portion 921 and a holding portion 922. The installation portion 921 is connected to the wall of the receiving hole 91, and the holding portion 922 is a bent portion and extends beyond the opening of the receiving hole 91. A holding room is defined between the two holing portions 922 and located corresponding to the roller 83 and the deadbolt 8. When the door is opened, the roller 83 is stopped by the holding portions 922 so that the roller 83 is not retracted into the receiving room 812, so that the door cannot be closed. When the door is closed, by operating the core 18, the roller 83 is retracted into the receiving space 812, so that the roller 83 is not affected by the holding portions 922 and is successfully closed.

[0071] The lock may have at least one of the functions 1 to 8 according to practical needs, and can be used in different locations. For example, as shown in Fig. 33 which discloses the sixth embodiment, and can perform functions 1 and 5 so that the lock can be used on bathroom doors. As shown in Fig. 34 which discloses the seventh embodiment, and can perform functions 1, 5 and 7 so that the lock can be used on room doors. As shown in Fig. 35 which discloses the eighth embodiment, and can perform function 1 so that the lock can be used on bathroom doors, kitchen doors and hallway doors. The portion that does not have the core hole 176 can be sealed by inserting a seal member (not shown). As shown in Fig. 36 which discloses the ninth embodiment, and can perform function 3 so that the lock can be used on storage room doors.

[0072] While we have shown and described the embodiment in accordance with the present invention, it should be clear to those skilled in the art that further embodiments may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
