Hi, guys. My name's Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look over on our product review videos. And today we're talking about a Union, it's the 1022. It's the traditional night latch. It's available on our website.
Now this is quite a popular lock purely and simply because of its styling. It really is the old traditional style, like the Yale-type night latch that you would expect to see on a wooden door. This is the actual lock itself. Now, as you can see, the styling is ornate. It is designed around that of being a traditional type night latch that you would expect to see.
Now this is manufactured by Yale, but the chances are that this was probably originally a Yale product. And of course as Assa Abloy has bought out Yale, Trump, and Union, then probably you will find that the footprint is exactly the same.
Of course, because this is modern, the chances are it's not going to be fitting the traditional holes that you may expect to see on an older-type door before decimization [sic]. So what you will find is that the back set on this particular one is 60 millimetres, and that's from the centre there to the face plate. So that's bang on 60 millimetres in this respect.
Now this is the champagne version. And this has this nice dull finish, and it really aids the character of what you might expect to have seen back in the earlier part of this century in regards to this style for locking on a door. So if this is the type of style that you're looking for, then maybe this is the boy for you.
But, what I'll recommend as a top security tip, if you're thinking that you want to fit this, you must consider fitting a five-lever lock further down, a British standard one even, further down the door. Don't rely on this as being your primary form of security. Okay? Because it's not, these days, it's just simply not good enough.
But it has its place, and it doesn't necessarily mean to say that you can't go ahead and fit it. You just need to consider fitting a more secure lock a bit further down. So treat this as, what we would call in the industry, as passive security. And then just keep the door closed and locked when you don't want anybody to come in. But when you want security, throw the old dead bolt over. Give yourself a little bit more security in that respect.
Now, of course, it has the traditional features. You've got this here, you've got the ability to drop the snip down and lock it into position like that. You also got the ability to drop it down and hold the snip back as and when you might need to do so, and it's all pretty standard stuff. Probably every British person is aware of how those particular type systems work. So that's what you would expect to see here.
Quality, build quality, again, it's Union, so you're going to get build quality. There's no two questions about that. And you can feel the finish here. It really is pucker in regards to it being a quality finish. So, you know, that's tried and testament now when it comes to looking at a Union graded product.
It comes actually with a cylinder, as well. As you can see here, this is the traditional cylinder that you'd see on the outside. Comes as standard with two keys, and it comes with all its fixing plates and back plates etc. in which to fit it all on to the door. And, of course, some instructions on how to do that.
But, you know, it comes in three different types of finishes. Well there's a silver case, this is the champagne version as well. There's also a brass-look version available that's under special order. And you can also get it with a chrome cylinder or brass cylinder, depending on your application.
You can also buy it as just the actual lock case itself. Now this lock is not a deadlocking version, so you can't deadlock it from outside. That's important for you to be aware of. And it's not for to deadlock and leave it. It's only primarily used as a latch. Hence the reason why we're talking about a deadlock a little bit further down the door.
But, listen, if you need a bit more information or you want a bit more advice, by all means, pop us over an email. Use the live chat that we have on our website.
Before I go, what I'm going to do quickly is I'm just going to get some overall measurements for you. Just to give you some sort of idea. If you're thinking, "Oh, this is ideal," or you're trying to replace it with one, let's make sure that it actually fits the application that you're looking for. Now that's the overall size of the case there, that's about 94 millimetres there. The overall width of the case there is 60, I'm going to go 68 millimetres, there.
You'll notice, as well, that there's this little lip here, as you can see here, which is indicative of this particular type of style of latch. Okay? So the projection on that there is five millimetres, so you'll need to cut out for that lip there, as well. The projection on the bolt there is 15 millimetres and the width on the bolt there is 25 millimetres, or the height, depending on how you look at it.
The actual keep again, that should be the same height, which it is, 68 millimetres. And, as you can see there as well, you've got this projection where you need to sit back into the frame to get it all to sit nice and tidy. And the depth of the back cut-out there would be around about 19 millimetres. And the distance going back there to the end, as well, is around about 22 millimetres there.
So there you go, guys. It gives you a lot of a bit more information. But, like I've said before, if you want to pop online, give us a shout. If you need a bit more information or a bit more advice, by all means, give us a shout. We'd love to hear from you, and, more importantly, we'd love to see you as customer.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the LocksOnline team, thank you very much for taking the time. Take care now, bye-bye.
