We work closely with our customers to address their specific needs in terms of security, structural and architectural aspects of the entry door design. We do recommend having the multipoint security locks installed by the door manufacturer or a professional locksmith. Modifying existing doors and door jambs require special tools, such as door mortising router and wood-working skills.
 

Installation of the multi point security door lock requires modification of both the door stiles and the door jamb. Unlike an ordinary deadbolt that can be installed or replaced by you using a tool kit purchased in the local hardware store the multipoint security locks require precise woodworking skills and specialized tools. This type of installation is typically done by a skilled locksmith or a door manufacturer. As seen on the illustrations, a 20mm wide and 10 mm deep grove and three lock pockets must be mortised along the long edge of the door that will house the multipoint locking system. Depending on the model of the door hardware (door knob or a lever and escutcheon) you will cut necessary holes in the face of the door to install the particular hardware. Templates are supplied with each model of the hardware. Insert the multipoint lock into the mortised groove and lock mechanism pockets. The locks rail must be flush with the narrow face of the door stile. If any part of the lock is protruding, remove the lock mechanism and mortise the rail groove or lock pockets to correct dimension. Once the lock fits the door correctly, use the supplied screws to secure the lock in the door stile (the lock rail has predrilled locations for the attachment screws). Next, install the cylinder and the door hardware according instructions supplied with the package.

 


Insert the Euro-style cylinder into the middle lock mechanism and affix the cylinder to the lock mechanism using the long set screw provided. The screw is fitted through the hole in the face of the lock rail (perpendicular to the cylinder). Make sure the screw is tightened solid. The set screw centers the cylinder in the lock mechanism. Make sure not to use excessive force to avoid cross threading and thus damaging the cylinder itself. The set screw should be screwed easily with minimal effort into the cylinder. Now test the cylinder and the lock locking an unlocking the mechanism few times making sure the cylinder is properly centered. Once the lock operates properly move onto installing rest of the door hardware, levers, door knobs and/or escutcheon.

 


The door jamb is the wood or steel frame that surrounds the door in the doorway. It is important for a door to have a good solid jamb for the door to close against. It's especially important to have a good jamb on an exterior door where a multi point lock will be used. The strike plate attaches to the jamb, and holds the door closed by catching the latch mechanism. Mount the door into the door frame hinges and mark the vertical location of at least one reference lock pin in each of three groups of locking pins (see Fig 1). With the door closed position trace a pencil line on the frame along the door edge/face. Next measure the offset, distance between a door face and the center of locking pin on the door. This may differ depending on the door thickness and precision of centering the multipoint lock in the door edge. Trace a parallel pencil line on the door frame/jamb at measured offset. Now you can use the actual strike plates as a stencil to mark exactly where the holes for the latch and all the pins should be drilled. The depth of the jamb holes must be minimum 22 mm or 3/4". Once the holes are in place install high security strike plates (full size or partial plates) supplied with the lock.
