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 look, yet again, at another one of our product review videos.
Our little product review videos have been really successful over the years to be able to give our customers a little bit more insight into the product and be able to show them in a little bit more detail. What we have found is that being able to explain to them how they work far exceeds that that an image and a bit of description will do. So what I want you to have a look at today is the range of marine grade push button locks that we have. They're quite popular on boats and yachts, motorboats, to be able to keep cabinets locked. And of course, because a boat sways all over the place, then you need to make sure that the cupboard doesn't fly open and empty all the contents all over the cabin.
So this particular range of push button locks are available on our website and, as you can see there, it's designed that you would fit this on the inside of the cupboard or drawer and this would then project out to allow you then to put a knob. And I have a knob here, even though they're sold separately because there are different styles. What we're going to talk about is this, but we've got a knob here just to explain its operation. So the idea is quite simple. When you actually push that in like that, that pushes up that little latch there like that and then that stops then the drawer or the door, the cabinet door, from being open.
When you push that back in there like that, then it obviously releases and allows you then to be able to open the door. But what you will also notice as well is this gets pushed in and this also, then, gets pushed out, which means that the knob becomes the handle in which to operate. So, if I was to actually pop this on here, this is the ferrule that would actually be over in the wood itself and this is the actual knob here that would screw onto that thread there and if you can zoom in there closer, let me just get that on there very, very quickly then. Okay. So that's now on there nice and tight. Screw that in there like that.
So you can imagine now, you being able to pull that open, but then when you wanted to close it into position, you push that in there like that and then that ferrule, then, would sit there nice and flush to make sure it's a lovely flush finish. So beautiful styling. Obviously, these are made out of plastic and they're made out of plastic for obvious reasons because plastic doesn't necessarily need as much lubricant and in a boating environment, of course it's not going to end up corroding. So that's well worth knowing.
Now, whilst that's in that position, it's great for me to be able to give you some sort of measurements and the measurement of the thickness, the maximum thickness to allow that to sit flush, if I was to put that there, to allow that to sit nicely and flush there, is around about the 16mm. Okay. So that's a pretty industry standard thickness of finish that you could have there, around about 16mm there, as you can see. Okay. So if your thickness of your door's about 16 mil, then that's going to sit flush. If it's slightly thinner, then obviously, it's going to stick slightly prior there and of course, if it's a little bit more, you can actually put this out a bit. There is the opportunity as well of being able to adjust the thread, so you don't necessarily have to have it all the way in. You can actually screw it out a little bit if the actual substrate is slightly fatter.
So that's the idea behind the actual device. Now, while I've got this here, it'd be interesting for you guys to know the size of the ferrule so you need to be drilling a hole. If I was to put that in there, that's giving me 25.95, so you need to be drilling a hole about 25mm, and there's a slight serration on that to allow you then to push it in. This, the centres on the fixing on here, if I was to just get those centres for you, bear with me, because that's quite important if you're retrofitting, they are 59mm or if I push it, yeah, around about 59mm there. I don't know if you could zoom in there and see that there. Obviously it's upside down to you guys. That's about 59mm there.
So I know from experience that that there is quite a universal size, so it would be well worth checking your boat to make sure that those centres are there. Another important measurement as well to have is what we call in the industry the backset. And the backset measurement is from this leading edge here, which should obviously sit flush to the cabinet or to the drawer, to the centre of where the actual ferrule is going to be. So I'll get that measurement for you now and probably better with a standard rule. Right, I'm getting that there at being 20mm, okay? So, again, it's a bit upside down for you guys, but that again, that backset there to 20mm.
So that's where the hole needs to be drilled in the cabinet for this to be able to work correctly. It's got a slightly bevelled edge. I have seen other designs that are a little bit more boxed, a little bit more square, but that's the particular design of this particular one. So if this is something that you're looking for, of course it not only fits for boats. You can use it in loads of different applications, in your camper caravan, in the back of your truck, et cetera, anywhere you need to have a cabinet that you need to keep closed, then you can use this particular type of push lock.
So there you go. If you need a bit more information on this lock or any of the ones that we have on our website, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have on our website. It's totally free and you can speak to me or any of the guys in the team at any time that you want to do so through the working day. Give us a call at 845-230-0201. Anyway, from me and all of us here at the team, take care and we'll catch up with you soon. Bye-bye.
