Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk. Many thanks for taking the time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. Today we're looking at the Yale 89 Night Latch that's available now on our website.
Now, one of the principle functions of this particular night latch it does have the ability to be deadlocked. And what I do, I'm going to do a couple measurements in a second, but I want to try and show you this because where as some of these particular type of locks is it just works and you just put the key in and operate and you return it and so forth. This particular one has it when you install it, if you could zoom in there, you might see two arrows. Can you see the two arrows there?
All right. When you install this you need to make sure that those two arrows are pointing at each other. And what that allows you to do is that from the outside you can put the key in, turn it one complete revolution, and that will then deadlock the latch from the outside. Okay, so that's important. So when you close the door, you close the door. Put the key in the door. Give it one complete revolution. Take the key out and you are an effectively deadlocking the door then from outside. So if anybody tried to use a bit of slip in my door, credit card, you may have seen it in the movies, that's going to restrict that ability from happening. So that's one of the features of this particular lock over a traditional style night latch.
Of course, it has its standard hold back facilities which allows you to hold it back, as you can see there. And of course, if you put it down there like that, it allows you to deadlock it from the inside. So that's pretty standard these days. As you can see there it's in this gun metal grey. Now, this particular one that I have here is the standard size but they also do a narrow stat size as well.
And the industry has gone pretty standard over this. It's that the standard size is the distance from the leading edge to the centre there is 60 millimetres. So that's pretty industry standard. There's a few exceptions to the rule, but mostly now the standard is 60 millimetres. Or, the narrow style version, which is mostly used on doors that have windows, etc., would be 40 millimetres. So it would be a little bit closer. So if you're thinking of changing this over, be well worth your checking your backset from your leading edge there to the centre there and make sure it's either 60 or 40 and either buy the narrow or the standard style, whichever suits you.
Now, it comes with its keep for standard. This is pretty standard and of course, this particular of type of Yale lock is pretty common on wooden doors in the UK. So I don't need to go into it a great deal. People are probably incredibly familiar with this particular type of lock. And of course then it has then also its backing plate as well that you would fit and allow you to fit the cylinder on the front.
Its cylinder. Now this particular lock comes with standard with two keys as you can see there. And it comes then with its cylinder and its rows a standard there. And of course, it comes then with some fixing screws as well.
Now one of the other distinctive advantages with this particular type of Yale lock as well is that you can actually reverse the latch. It's not my intention to actually strip the lock down now and I play around with it and get it all reversed. But you can actually turn this around. A complete 180 degrees, all the way around, and allow you then to use this on an outward opening door. And we do do a range then of a different type of lips and striking plates to allow for it to be an outward opening sort of door and locking solution. So be well worth you being familiar with that. If you wanted to use for an outward opening solution.
