When assembling & installing your door, lock the snib (the silver lever used to lock & unlock the door without the key) must be in the 12 o'clock position - if this is not installed correctly, your locking mechanisms will not perform correctly.
Hold the door in the open position - 6mm down from the top of jamb with hinge open. Resting against the jamb, mark the centre of the elongated hole in the top hinge
Using a 3 mm drill bit, slightly pre-drill a pilot hole on the mark you have just made.
Hold the door in place & using a cordless screw gun through the centre elongated hole into pilot hole & screw up tight. Repeat the same process using the centre hole of the bottom hinge. Now close the door onto the jamb & stand outside. Adjustments up & down can now be made, if necessary, by loosening the two screws. Once you are happy with the doors position then pilot drill & fix all remaining screws to the hinges.
Whilst holding the door in the open position, push the round trigger on the main lock to extend the tongue into the locking position. Close the door up to the jamb & mark above & below the tongue.
Now open the door & use the striker plate as a guide to trace the two holes & the rectangle tongue hole onto the jamb - using the marks as a guide.
IMPORTANT: The round trigger is not designed to go into the main tongue hole. It is a designed to trigger the main tongue only & must not go in main tongue hole. It is designed to slide just above the hole & stay in the depressed position on the main striker face.
Using a 3 mm drill bit, pilot drill the two screw holes.
Then ribbon drill the complete outer area of the tongue hole.
Using a 10mm wood chisel & hammer, extract timber to make the hole needed for the main tongue. Make sure that this hole is cleaned out completely & that no tongue restriction remains.
Fix the main striker plate into position with the two screws provided. Complete the Simple Lock Check to ensure the door is now locking in both open & closed positions with exactly the same non restricted action, deadlocking the internal snib when locked with the key.
Use the following method to ensure lock is operating correctly:
· Open the door, pull down on the handles & release.
· Without touching the door handles, depress the small round trigger above the main tongue, this will allow the main tongue to fully extend. This is the correct lock check position for your lock.
· Without touching the door handles, use the internal snib to engage the lock. In the case of 3-point locks, the top & bottom strikers will also extend. Do this several times to gain the appropriate feel of how the lock should correctly engage without restriction.
· Close the door & without touching the handles repeat the process. If you do not feel the identical sensation of the lock then you have a restriction.
· If you have a restriction, you must inspect the lock holes to find & then clear the obstruction.
Test & retest, until the door locks with the same feel both open & closed.
