The LocksOnline SK44 Electro-mechanical Lock has a high resistance to vandalism, and is very robust.
The SK44 is supplied in Fail Locked configuration, so the door locks in case of power failure, ideal for high security applications.
The LocksOnline SK44 Electro-mechanical lock is an ideal solution for access control on a narrow stile door.
The SK44 has a case depth of only 40mm making it ideal for access control on a narrow stile door or doors with large glass panels.
A unique feature of the SK44 is that the lock case itself does not require power, instead, power for the lock is supplied to the strike plate which sits in the frame, this in turn activates the lock on contact as the door closes.
This means that installation is made easy as it does not require the installation of a door loop to protect the power cabling, the cable can simply run from the strike plate and down the frame.
How this lock operates
This lock operates in Fail Locked mode, when the door closes, the bolt is automatically engaged via an auto-deadlocking snib that makes contact with the strike plate. When power is sent to the lock, the plate that the auto-dealocking snib sits against is withdrawn and the bolt is disengaed until the door is returned to the closed position.

Hi guys, and welcome to LocksOnline product reviews. My name's Darrel,
head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk, and today we're going to
have a look at our SK range of electric locks from LocksOnline.
So here's this particular type of lock, here. It's a really, really great
little lock, and the functionality and the way it works is quite unique.
I've connected up a battery so we can actually have a look at it actually
operating. The lock itself is available... this is the part that will
actually go into the door. It's available in 22 millimetres, let me just
double check, it's 22, we've got 32, 50, and 60 millimetre backsets. Now
this one here is actually the 22 millimetre, and you can get different
backsets. But this is ideal for a thin door, where you haven't got much
meat to fit [sounds like 0:53] the lock. You've got the ability to open the
door via a lever handle, if you wanted to, or you could just use the euro
cylinder as a mechanical way of opening the door should you need to do so.
So, what you could have is a lever handle on the inside, and a cylinder on
the outside, so you'd need a key in which to get in mechanically, but a
lever handle to get out, should you want to in the event of an emergency.
This particular part here is actually the part that's actually fitted into
the frame, and in here is what's connected to the electric. So you don't
need door loops or anything like that. That can actually sit into the
frame. And the quite clever technology works that this particular device
here is like a spring door. I don't know if you can zoom into that, Sam.
But that there is like a little spring door that, when power is applied,
that door gets released. And when that actually gets released, it actually
allows this particular bolt here to be pushed in, which then allows this
bolt to be withdrawn. So, as it stands per normal, when you close the door.
I don't know if you can zoom into that, I'll try and mimic as if the door
is closing. That there pushes that bolt into the keep like that. Now, when
we release the power on here, this little trap door gets pushed in. That,
by allowing that to come out, withdraws the bolt.
So, it's quite a unique little design, and what we're going to do now is
apply power to it so you can actually see this little trap door working. So
I've got it already connected up to the battery, so if I was to apply power
there now, I don't know if you heard that, I don't know if you can zoom
into that now, that now is being released look. And if I can point that out
see. It's now released. And by releasing that, it allows this bolt to
project out, in which case withdraws the actual bolt there.
So, really, really great device. One of the main advantages is it will work
in a narrow style door. So if you've got an aluminium shop front door or
anything like that, this might be the ideal choice for you. It works off 12
volts, and it's 12 volt DC. Obviously we've got a 12 volt DC battery there.
So that's this particular type of lock. It's the new range from
LocksOnline. It's great, the current draw is very minimal, so you wouldn't
have any worries about that. We have a full data and spec sheet on our
website, should you wish to get some more information. So check it out! See
if it's the product to suit you.
Thank you for watching, this is Darrel Walters, head of the LocksOnline
tech team. Take care, and bye bye.
