Anyone know what brand door knob/lock this is?

Working for a customer and the handle broke off. I do not know a brand or if it can be fixed. It appears the handle is just pot metal and sheared right off.

Looks like an antique, for sure! You will likely need to look into replacing it with a similar (but modern) security lock.

That was made by Ideal Security....I think they may have ceased operation back in the 90's, not sure. They had a number of rather unique rim lock designs, based on the old Segal jimmy-proof lock; I think the design was modified to allow a more ergonomic lever and allow latching as well as deadbolting.

The closest replacement I can think of, is the Segal Slam Lock, still being made, at least as of 5 years ago, (when I bought one). It works on the same principle, in that it is a self-latching vertical bolt. The door prep will be similar, altho doubtful you can just bolt it on as a replacement without some door/frame mods.

You might also look at the Yale V179 jimmy-proof rim lock. It It is strictly a deadbolt tho, but the strike plate is so similar to that of the Ideal Security lock, that they might interchange. The Segal's is quite unique, so no interchange there. And neither lock has the lever handle. I don't know of any company that has copied the Ideal Security design....pity......it was introduced back in the 80's I think, and gone in the 90's (at least in my neck of the woods).

I know which lock you are referring to from Yale. I don't see anything about V179 though.

I think the "V" in the part number means it's a blister-pak or carded for retail display, as in "Visual", but that's just a guess. It's part number is actually just "179".
