These models can be indentified with the marking "Excalibur" which can be found on the strip of the multipoint lock. A holdback facility can also be found here, this allows temporary free access through the door until the snib is pushed back into the off position. The PZ measurement for the Kenrick Excalibur is 92mm and 62mm; this allows different permutations from either side. This model is available with a 35mm backset and is available in either a hook bolt or deadbolt version.
These models are replacements for Kenrick multipoint lock gearboxes; this manufacturer produces specialized UPVC products.
The gearboxes in multipoint locks are usually one of the first components to fail in the system, this is because they often carry a load of mechanical stress as they are responsible for the entire system functioning.

Hi guys, my name is Darrel, and I am the head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking the time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos.
The product that we have here today is a range of Mila gear boxes for multipoint locks. Now the actual multipoint locking system these days is obsolete on this particular range. But what you need to be looking at if you do have a multipoint lock in your door and you see it written on there the words "Mila" or "coldseal" or "swift frame," then the chances are this is the gear box that you are going to need to be able to replace on your particular door and your particular lock.
Some other identifiers as well that helps you to understand whether or not this is the one for you is if you actually take the lock out of the door, you will see that they've got these sharpened edges here. All right, that's one indicator to say that this is the one that you are looking for.
The second indicator is whether or not it's got an actual bolt as well because this is a range that come with just latch only and don't have a bolt. Now they come a standard as of 35 millimetres back set but there is two different variations. On this one here you see it has two followers and on the standard one it only has the one follower there as you can see.
Now the PZ end measurement on these is 92 millimetres from the centre of the keyhole to the centre of the follower, or on this particular one, the top one is 92 and the bottom one is 70 millimetres to the bottom follower as well.
So what this one allows you to do that's different to this one is that if you have got some different functionality on the outside like a latch function, etc., then this is the chances you have got on this one. But if it's a standard lift up the handle, turn the key and you operate the lock on both sides, then the chances are maybe just this one. Taking it out and having a look at these, will they give you that sort of marker as to say which one you need?
There is not really much more that you can say about this, like I said the gear boxes are–sorry, the actual lock themselves that are no longer made, but we can still get the gear boxes for them. So again those markers that you are looking for on the strip, on the actual locking strip on the door, is either Mila, coldseal or swift frame. And if you have got those markers and those little other identifiers, then the chances are this is the particular type of gear box for your application.
If there is some more information you can need or you are not 100% sure? Listen pop on the phone, pop us over an email, we would love to help you, and more importantly we would love to see you as a customer.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at LocksOnline and we'll catch up with you real soon. Bye-bye now.
