The bolt 8 being thus restrained jamb II, constitute the principal parts and por holds the rack member in the dotted line position tions of my door lock. "10 shown in Figure l, until a key is used to retract In the construction of my door lock, I have the bolt 8. provided a substantially rectangular box-shaped It will he noted that when the conventional casing I, which is adapted to be set into the struclock bolt 8 is retracted by the key, the spring 1,

that during the rotation of the gears 4 and 5 they are maintained 1n position in the casing l by means llc and 5c, which are xed to the inner side oi the casing l.

Though I have shown and described a particular construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions, I do not wish to be limited to this particular construction, combination and arrangement, but desire to include in the scope of my invention the construction, combination and arrangement substantially as set forth in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. A locking mechanism ior locking a member against swinging movement relative to a second member, comprising opposing loc-k casings naving apertured face plates in opposing relation, the apertures in one iace plate being opposite to the apertures in the other tace plate, a lock bolt operatively mounted in one casing and extendable from one face plate through the other face plate, said bolt being of the type which is restrained against retraction until released by a key, a spring-biased bolt-operated member operably mounted in the other casing and positioned for being engaged by said bolt and driven i wardly of said other casing against spring pressure when said bolt is extended, a secondary bolt operably mounted in said other casing, and mechanical linking means connecting said member and said secondary bolt for extending said secondary bolt through both said face plates when said member is driven inwardly.

2. A locking mechanism for locking. a member against swinging movement relative to a second member, comprising opposing lock casings having apertured face plates in opposing relation, the apertures in one face plate being opposite to the apertures in the other face plate, a lock bolt operatively mounted in one casing and extendable from one face plate through the other face plate,

means of the which is restrained against retraction a key, a spring-biased bolt-operated member operably mounted in the other casing and positioned for being engaged by said bolt and driven inwardly of said other casing against spring pressure when said bolt is extended, a secondary bolt operably mounted in said other casing, and mechanical linking means connecting said member and said secondary bolt for extending said secondary bolt through both said face plates when said member is driven inwardly, said member including a rack and said mechanical linking means comprising a gear means operated by said rack and operating said secondary bolt.

said bolt being of for locking a member against swinging movement relative to a second member, comprising opposing lock casings having apertured face plates in opposing relation, a lock bolt operatively mounted in one casing and extendable from one iace plate through the other face plate, said bolt being of the type which is restrained against retraction until released by a key, a spring-biased bolt-operated member operably mounted in the other casing and positioned for being engaged by said bolt and driven inwardly of said other casing against spring pressure when said bolt is extended, a secondary bolt operably mounted in said other casing, and mechanical linking means connecting said member and said secondary bolt for extending said secondary bolt through both said face plates when said member is driven inwardly, said member including a rack and said mechanical linking means comprising a gear means operated by said rack and operating said secondary bolt, said member `having a second rack in opposing relation to the first mentioned rack, another secondary bolt similar to the first mentioned secondary bolt, another gear means similar to said gear means and operated by said second rack, said lock bolt being manually operated as by a key.
