For a multi-purpose garage door lock that could be used in other situations, this L&F 1638 Large Locking Tee Handle can fit the bill! While normally used for garages, you could use this in places like the the back of a truck, or in a cabinet. It is small in size, which gives it an advantage of being able to fit in a lot of different places.
Once fitted, you use the key to turn the square spindle into either the locked or unlocked position.
This will then allow you access or lock in position. Another plus is that the key number is printed on the actual lock. This means that if you do manage to lose the key (doh! :D) then you can give us a call (wink wink) to replace the key.
The handle projection is 44mm, Plate Height is 58mm, Plate length is 30mm and the screw centres are 45mm. Two keys are supplied and the lock is finished in a nice looking chrome. Order from LocksOnline.co.uk today! - A.J
Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. Today we've got the Lowe and Fletcher 1638 Large Locking T Handle for you guys to have a look at.
Now this particular T handle has a multiple purposes. We've seen them on the back of trucks, on the back of doors and so forth of the IS trucks or the cabinets that sit on the back to actually make the back of the truck all enclosed. We can see them on certain filing cabinets and so forth. And of course, we can see them on other types of applications. One of the distinct advantages with this particular type is the actual footprint that is relatively small and even though it can be used, like I've said, on vehicles and so forth, they can also be used on garages as well. So it has a big range of different types of multiple purposes.
So one thing that you can see that's a little bit unique about this lock, I'll take the key out of it then, is the actual base, as you can see there, is slightly shorter than the actual handle itself and therefore it can give you some sort of indication. Now, if you're thinking about this might be the one for you, have a look to see if the handle is bigger than the base. If it is, chances are this might be the one that you're looking for.
A little bit more information, I don't know if you can zoom in that closely, but there you might see stamped a number. If you have a number on there, that is the actual key number. Should it be that you actually lost the key to your particular handle, assuming that the handle is fine, then we might be able to cut you a key via that number. So that's another bit of advice is if you're thinking that it's just the key that you're after, you have a number on it, give us a call. I'm sure we may be able to help you out on that. So it has loads of different applications, nothing in specific but loads of generic.
So what I am going to do is I am going to get some measurements for you now. If you want to follow me through on the measurements, what we will do then is you can say is, "Right. This is the one I'm looking for." Let's try and tune those measurements in to see whether or not it's the exact one for you. So from the base there to the end of the actual spindle, as you can see there, it's just square locking spindle. Just for your information, it's actually square. It stays square because when the side is the unlocked position, which that is, or in the locked position, it actually stays square. Sometime you can get on different types of handles; you can get in a diamond so it's well worth you being aware. In other words, you'd be slightly offset by 90 degrees.
The actual length there from the plate to the back bit is 55mm. Now there's no reason why it couldn't be cut back to suit your application, or it can be threaded. You can do with as you want with regards to that bar. But that bar there, as I mentioned, it projects about 55, 56mm. The thickness of that bar there is a standard, say, about 7 or 8mm thick. Let me just make sure I get a better measurement from that for you guys. Yeah, it's going to be 8mm. So that's an 8mm the spindle on that. The fixing centres there, if I can get in there to the fixing centre for you, I am registering there probably 44mm fixing centres is between here and there. And the overall base size is we're nearly touching just short of about 60mm because it's slightly bowed behind this side. The actual projection of the actual handle out is 45mm and the actual overall handle there is about a 105mm there about. Okay.
So there you go, guys. It's the Lowe and Fletcher 1638 Large Locking T Handle. It comes in this chrome finish. It's actually quite a good finish, I'll have to be honest with you. And it comes standard with two keys. Of course, it's available here on LocksOnline.co.uk.
