Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail and help you make a bit better of an informed decision as to whether or not this is the product that you're looking for.
Today I want to show you the Simplex Unican, the 900 series lock that we have available on our website. This is the actual case. Now, this is a rim application sort of combination lock. So therefore then, if you wanted to fit this on to a door, you don't necessarily need to worry about how thick the door is because this actually sits on the reverse of it. I mean it's recommended that the door thickness be at least, well roundabout, the international standard which is about 44 mil thick. I'll get some measurements for you on that a little bit later.
But the principle of how these actually work is on the outside you'll see that this is the type of system that you have there. And as you can see, the numbers are being used, the numeric dials that you would probably see, it's not the one, the two to three that you may see on the other types of variants.
Now one of the distinct advantages with Simplex Unican and it's quite difficult to try and explain, but the way that the combination works, it's a sequence of events as opposed to a range of numbers. So you could have, in these particular cases, you could have numbers that could be pressed simultaneously as part of the combination. So it's a sequence of events that have to be in a specific order which makes then Simplex a little bit more secure than perhaps some of the other type of combination locks that are out there.
Once you've dialled in the number that way, that is designed to operate, you can either turn this here, which would then operate the latch. Or by all means on the inside here, you have the ability to retain the latch via the little turn there.
You also have a deadlocking snib here. This allows you to be able to, sorry, to hold back snib. This allows you here to be able to hold the latch back to allow free access there, as you can see. This particular part down here is what they call the deadlocking snib. What that means is that when the lock is in the lock position, if I can pop that back into that position there. This gets pushed in and therefore then that deadlocks the actual latch to stop anybody slipping mica [SP], or using the old credit card as a way of forcing an entry. To change the combination on these, you quite simply you don't do this bolt at the top there.
And inside there then is the change code assembly, and of course is says in the instructions on how to achieve that. So what is also comes with as well is the standard keep here that you can have. And there is also an outward opening keep as well, if the door is outward opening.
Now, to get some sort of idea on measurements, one of the most critical measurements on these is what we call the backset. And that is the centre here to me here and how far this particular combination chamber will sit from this leading edge of the door there. So to give you guys some sort of idea of measurement there, you've got a measurement there of 65 millimetres. So this is going to sit back from leading edge of the door there 65 millimetres so that is quite an important measurement.
The actual measurement of the overall lock itself, if we get the overall height there. You're looking there right about a 125 millimetres. And the overall depth of the actual lock as well from one end to the other. Back there is going to be the roundabout the 97 millimetres, the overall width of the actual lock itself.
So there you go, guys. It comes with its keeps, as we mentioned. It also comes with this fixing pack here, as well for you and obviously, the instructions. This is probably one of the most popular ranges because it has the latching facility. So in other words, when the door closes it automatically latches lock. You can get a deadlock version as well if you need it.
But if you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, pop us over an email, you the live chat, or simply give us a call. We'd love to hear from you and more importantly, we'd love to see you as our customer. So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in. We'll catch with you real soon. Take care, now. Bye-bye.
