Hi, guys. My name's Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking the time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. Now the whole idea of these videos is to be able to give you guys out there a little bit more insight into the products that we have on our site. What we find is that sometimes an image and a description isn't necessarily enough to be able to look at a product in a bit more detail and it allows me to explain to you what the product is, how it works, and probably give you some of the basic measurements to be able to get you along to see whether or not this is fit for your particular application.
What we have here today is a sliding door lock. It's designed and manufactured by a company called Yale. The idea of it is to, when you've got two sliding doors that go back and forth against each other, you can use this lock to be able to lock one against the other. So you can imagine if you've got a sliding door right here and then the other one is on the inside sliding back and forth there, you can actually place this in the centre and therefore, then when the both doors are in the closed position, you will then be able to push this through like that and lock this in through the . . . onto the . . . from the, sorry, from the first door into the second door to stop them then from being able to be opened. Therefore you'd need a key there in which to open it. So that's the basic functionality of this particular type of lock. They're available keyed alike and to special order, should you need to do so, and of course we can cut spare keys as well if you need to have additional keys to the product when you're ordering.
So what I'm going to do know is I'm just going to give some quick little measurements so therefore then if you're thinking, John, this is just the idea or you want to replace it with one that's already there, and you can start looking at your size of your lock and see whether or not it'll fit in the same hole. So the overall diameter as you can see there, if I were to take a measurement on that, that there is 19 millimetres, 19, just about 19 millimetres there. The projection, that's the size of the bolt that's going out the back there is about 10, 11 millimetres, out the back there. The overall side of the fixing plate, just put that onto there like that, okay, that there is 54 millimetres, okay. And the fixing centres, let's see if we can get the fixing centres for you as well. Come in a little bit there. And those there are 34 millimetres, 35 millimetres, the fixing centres.
What it also comes with as well is this ferrule and the idea of the ferrule is that sits over there like that to tidy up the hole once you've drilled it. So what you will see from the outside is this nice finish here and a nice bevelled rosette here on the outside there to make it a bit more nice to the eye, except you've more of a professional finish. One thing you'll need to be aware of as well is the size of this flute here, if I was to measure that, that'd give you then an idea of the overall size of the whole thing you need to be considering and that there's just over the 20 millimetres mark there. So you need to be drilling a 21, 22 millimetre hole. And of course the actual overall size, so you don't want to be drilling too big a hole, and that there is 29 millimetres, so you've got a little bit of degree of tolerance depending on the size of the flat that you may have in which to drill the hole.
It comes also with a ferrule, this locking ferrule here would fit in the inner door that allows then this then to be able to lock into the other here and that's quite a substantial fitting there. And if I just get that measurement for you as well, that measurement there is 9.74. You're probably looking at a 9 millimetre hole there and then you'd be able to tap that in or glue it into place and will look really, really nice. If it's wanted to be sit flush, you need to be drilling an additional hole there, that's going to be 14.5 millimetres. Probably a 15 millimetre hole and then that will be able to sit flush then, because, as you can see, if you can zoom in, there's a slight bevel there. So depends on your application as to how tight the doors are together.
It comes standard as well with two keys, and as I've mentioned already, it's available keyed alike. Now that's just one of the products that we have on our website, we've got tens of thousands of different locking solutions and our mission is to try and get them all on the videos to give you guys and your customers a little bit more detailed information in regards to how it kind of works and the functionality of it. And I hope I've been able to help you make that decision today.
But listen, if you need a bit more information and you want a bit more advice, call me. Use the live chat on our website, it's totally free and you can call us during our working day, or give us a call or pop us over an email and we'll get back to you the following day. Can I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to have a look at this video and hopefully, it's helped you along your way and we'll catch up with you real soon. Take care. Bye-bye.
