The Borg 6100 is a mechanical keypad lock designed for multipoint locking systems, commonly seen on uPVC and composite doors, but now also on many wooden doors these days. With a body width of just 45mm the 6100 is ideal for the fairly narrow door stiles often found on uPVC doors - and metal doors for that matter.
The free acting external handle is permanently clutched to provide no handle resistance until the correct code is entered. This clutching mechanism reduces stress on the lock that would otherwise be caused when attempting to operate the handle after an incorrect code. The inside handle is permanently engaged so that free exit can always be achieved.
In addition to the basic functionality described, these also offer a free passage mode, which is engaged by entering the code followed by the 'F' key. This will allow the handle to operate as a normal handle with code-free access until such time as the passage mode is disabled once again. It can also be permanently disabled during setup to avoid accidental use of the free passage facility where it is not wanted or needed. This is explained in the supplied installation document.
Incorporating a single column of 8 buttons (numbers 1-7 and the 'F' button) the Borg 6100 offers a high security sequentially coded method of access control you'd expect from a high quality combination lock, now on your multipoint-operated wooden, metal, composite or uPVC doors. And beyond that of many mechanical combination locks, this combination handle even incorporates Borg's "double-press" solution, which allows for the use of double-digits in codes, where others will often only allow the single use of any one digit within the defined code.
Perfect for retrofit applications, the fixing centres are 195mm which works with most multipoint lock fixing positions, and the PZ centres measurement is variable to suit both 90mm and 92mm PZ - this is the distance between the centre of the
handle and the centre of the keyway at the top of the euro cylinder.

Okay and welcome back. We have here, in our hands, the Borg lock for the
UPVC doors as discussed earlier. What we're going to show you is how to
actually change the code on this Borg lock.
Now you will notice that we have one, two, three, four, five, six
combinations, and that, therefore, tells you that's the numbers one, two,
three, four, five, and six. At this moment in time, we have a code that's
programmed as 4-3-2-6. So if we put in 4-3-2-6, that operates. I'll try
that again, just to show you. If you look there, that cam is not moving. If
I put the number in, 4-3-2-6, look at the cam, and there you go. That's
going to operate the latch.
So how do we actually go about changing the code? The most important thing
to do, first of all, is to clear the chamber. So to clear the chamber, you
need to operate the handle down, and that clears all the chamber, so
there's no buttons have been pressed.
What you need to then do is to write down what number you're going to have
as your code. So get yourself a piece of paper. Put that down for a second,
and we think to ourselves, "What is the number that we're going to have?"
For demonstration purposes, we're going to have the code 3-4-1-6. That's
going to be the code.
Now the important thing that we need to do or what this system runs the
codes as is they are sequential. So when we want to program three, it has
to be three as being the first code. The way to do this is we need to lift
up this chamber here like this and move that little indicator there, that
little nobule there. I don't know if you can zoom in that close therr. Move
that little nobulator to the centre line there, to the right-hand red mark.
So the first number in the sequence is three, so three is the third chamber
down. One, two, three. So what we need to do is to lift that up and move it
over so it's right on that red mark. That little pin inside there is
setting that red mark on the right-hand side. Once you've done that, press
The next is number four, so one, two, three, four. So what we need to do
again is to lift that up, and in this case, we need to move it slightly
over. Let me get my fingers in there slightly. Need to move it over a
slightly bit more. There you go. I think that's it. No, it's not. Let's try
that. There you go. I'm happy with that. Get it in there, nice and
comfortable, and press digit number four.
Now, number one, we have to lift this one up, move it right over. Of
course, I'm trying to do this at the same time to show you. Of course, I'd
have this in front of me, and it would be a lot easier. That's number one,
press number one, and then number six, which is right down at the bottom
here. We need to move that one over, so he's sitting right there. Press
six, and you'll hear that defined click, because we've programmed this to
be a four-digit system, and therefore then, we have now programmed the
fourth digit in, and you would hear that defined click.
If we now press this down, that resets the chambers. Everything's fine. Now
if we put that number in now, which is 3-4-1-6, you hear that defined
click. Press it down, and you can see that that can rotate it. Again, you
want to try it a few times, just to make sure that it is actually working.
And there you go. We'd be happy now to program that up and that's fine.
Once you've finished programming your code, 3-4-1-6 in our case, of course,
numbers two and five are not used. What the manufacturer recommend that you
do is to get the chamber and to lift them up and put the little blue
nobule, that you can see there, against the left-hand red line. What that
basically does is eliminate that number out of the code altogether, so it
can't inadvertently jump around and inadvertently be part of the code and
lock yourselves out.
So once you've actually finished putting the code in, 3-4-1-6, I'm going to
do the same as well with number two. If you noticed, the number two is just
sitting up there quite happily. We'll push that over and drop him down, so
he sits there, and therefore, he is now locked out of the code sequence. We
would recommend that you do that until the next time that you want to
change the code. Okay? That's great, thank you.
The beauty with a Borg lock is that you have the ability to change the
length of the code. Your code could be only one digit, or it could be as
much as six digits long. This little indicator here shows how many digits
the code is going to be. If this little digit is right over in this far end
over here, it will say that the code will be one digit long. If, however,
this is right over here, then it will say that the code is six digits long.
We have it programmed here, at the moment, to be four digits long. If you
lift this all the way up to the top, you can rotate it to the left or to
the right, back and forth, to denote how many digits you want your code to
be. Normally, four codes, four digits is enough, but if you want that extra
bit of security, bring it up to five or to six digits.
