By default, the lock is permanently in an unlocked (“open”) state. This is factory default, which means the installer can never lock himself/herself out whilst installing.
Remove all existing door hardware and cut the door to specifications provided. Correct cutting dimensions and backset alignment is very important, ensure the door is cut to a high accuracy for best performance and durability.
Install tubular latch or mortise latch loosely into the door, and place the front lock body into the door. Ensure correct spindle alignment. Read the instructions on the back of the front lock body for correct spindle alignment instructions.
Place the rear lock body onto the back of the door making sure the snib spindle and latch spindle are inserted properly. It does not matter which direction the privacy snib spindle is placed when installing the rear lock body.
Insert fixing screws and tighten to a firm, but not overtight, fix. Use a screw driver when tightening as you may damage the thread and screw sleeve. It is very important not to tighten too tight.
Test both handles for smoothness and mimic a smooth swing of the door closing. This ensures the lock and latch hardware is functioning and installed correctly.
Note: the front handle can still open the door (“the door is always open”). The lock will turn into an auto-locking state when a room number is programmed.
Take the two mechanical keys provided and label them to the designated door number.
It is up to the installer and client with what they wish to do with these keys. Make sure the keys are kept safe as these keys are the last point of redundancy to open the door in an emergency.
Lock installation complete.
