Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I am head of the tech team here at Locks Online. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of product review videos. Now, we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer and hopefully in a little bit more detail. In the flesh, so to speak.
So today, I want to show you a strike release case that's designed to work in conjunction with and outward opening door. There are sometimes in our industry you might have a typical Yale-type lock. It's quite common in the UK to have a Yale-type lock. And some of these particular Yale-type locks, especially Yale 88s etc., can be reversed so they can be working, or they can operate on an outward opening door. So when you want to be able to put access control on that door, or some sort of intercom system you kind of then struggle as to what you're going to do about it. How are you going to get it to work, etc.
Now, this is a mortise strike release, and in some applications you would variably have a mortise lock in the door, in which case then having an outward opening is not necessarily a big issue. But there are situations where you got yourself a Yale lock, and the problem is then is that you need to be able to operate a strike release on that. So maybe, this is exactly what you're actually looking for here. And what this allows you to do is it allows you to be able to screw this onto the actual door so that the actual door's outward opening there like that. And what you would effectively do is either buy yourself a rim strike release or a mortise strike release, like this particular one here. And then, you can then take out the gear, the actual release out of the faceplate and fit into here.
Now, I've got a screwdriver, and the whole idea is I'm going to show you guys just how simple that is in which to do that. So I'd effectively undo that there, like those, take that one out there, like that, then pop those screws to one side there, like that, and pop those screw there to there. And then, I would then situate this inside here, like that, and then I would then be able to screw those back in there, like that. So it goes all really smoothly for us. So that's one screw in there, like that. Then, that one in there, just move that up slightly a bit there. Pop that into there like that, and there you go. That's as simple as that. Now that is actually situated now.
So you can imagine now that the door is outward opening there. It's on a Yale lock, so effectively, when you release this will actually pull back like that. This is a fail-safe version, so it's actually good for the example. That would fail back there, like that, and then the latch then would allow you to open the door, like that. So when it came to the lock position it would close, like that, and then the latch would come in and clip over to there, and therefore then, that would allow you then to put it back into the lock position. You can then screw this via the screws on the leading faceplate there.
Now, bear in mind, guys, when you're thinking of doing this, you're going to have to channel out the timber behind this particular release. So therefore then, from the outside your going to end up having a groove just situated here to allow the actual lock to come into here. So you'd better be mindful of that. It's going to have to have a nice chamfer or trim it out, etc., and the actual frame itself. But the idea is just to be able to show this case. So therefore now, you have the ability of using a strike release on a Yale lock on an outward opening door. We do have the ability to do that here on Locks Online, so that's really great.
So there you go guys. It's just to be able to show you in the flesh this particular type of an assembly. So if you need a bit information on that, what I will do before I shoot off is I'll just get some quick little measurements for you, because it might be that you think that's ideal, and then, how much, or what's the length of this, or whether or not it will fit. So the actual part that will actually fit into the actual frame itself there, I'm looking at that there, you're looking at round about 26mm, so that projects into the frame if you can imagine that situated like that, that would there go in about 26mm.
The actual size of the case there itself is about another 24mm. The depth is about 31mm, etc. And as you can see then, we've got the two screw fixings. The overall length of that there is 135mm. Now, the jaw depth and the jaw width, I'll give those to you, but they can change depending on the keep or the strike that you're going to use. The actual jaw depth is round about 7mm. And those fixing centres there, just in case you might already have one, I'm looking at those there round about the 51mm, 52mm fixing centres there.
So there you go guys. If you need a bit more information, there's something that I haven't mentioned on there, boom, just pop us over an email. Use the live chat that we have. Or simply do it the old fashion way, and pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you. More importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers. So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in, and catch up with you real soon. Take care now. Bye-bye.
