This uPVC & Modern Timber window lock gearbox by Kenrick, comes in two base variants. This model has 42mm fixing centres, which is an industry standard. This model also accepts a 7mm follower and comes in either a 20mm or 22mm backset. These can be identified by the 20mm being flat only the edge, whereas the 22mm version is slightly raised along the edge.
Kenrick produce and manufacture a wide range of gearboxes for UPVC window locks. They tend to be one of the first things to fail in a window lock due to the amount of mechanical actions they are required to perform with the locking, unlocking, opening and closing of the window.
This model should have either Kenrick or Excalibur stamped on the case itself.
Hi guys, my name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and having a look at one of our product review videos.
The product that we have here in front of us today is the Kenrick. It's the Excalibur range of gear boxes. It's designed to work on UPVC multipoint windows. Let's have a look at them, and we're trying to get some key idents, that if you've got the type of lock in your particular window, then here's some markings and so forth that are on them, that can help you identify that you have this particular lock.
For starters, it has Kenrick written on it, and that's a good tip for starters. Also on the other side here as well it has Excalibur written on the actual gear box as well. Hence the reason why it's called a Kenrick Excalibur.
Now, the reason why we're talking about the gear box is more so than anything else, is that you have rods that sit on either end on here. But normally it's not the rods that give up. It's normally the gear boxes that fail. The rods get seized up, but they could be taken out and cleaned up and lobed, and they can be started and working easy. But if the gear box has been under pressure or under tension or anything like that, then it's chances are that this what's going to break for you.
Now, one of the distinct advantages with this particular type of lock as well is how the actual gear box works. If I was to push that in there, that they slide away lovely and tidy. There's a lot of good that is security and so forth in the way that these actually work.
The centres here, from the fixing centres is a standard of 42 millimetres. That's an industry standard these days, and also the size of the follower or the spindle hold there, that's standard as seven millimetres. I've got a handle here and that will sit in there no problem at all.
They do also come in two different sizes, and that's the reason why I've got the two different ones here. One of them is 20 millimetre back-set. That's the distance from there to the start of this, basically this under-piece here, and the other one is 22 millimetres.
To be able to work out the difference between the two, is the 22-millimetre version has this little raised piece at the back of the lock on the bottom of the lock etc. and that's what makes it 22 millimetres. The 20-millimetre version doesn't, as you can see there. All right. That's the way that you would tell whether or not you've got the 22 millimetre or 20 millimetre.
There you go guys. They're now available on our website, LocksOnline, no problem at all.
