Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking the time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail.
Today I want to show you a type of multipoint lock that's designed for the old Everest type doors. I use the word "Everest." I mean other manufacturers used them as well, but in the old aluminium doors you may have found back in the 70s and the 80s. A lot of them now are obsolete, but this particular centre gear box is still available. So if this is something that you're looking for because obviously there's a lot of these now are starting to become faulty, etc. If this is the type that you have then perhaps you're in luck and you will be able to replace it.
So, this is the actual lock itself. Now, it is quite functionable. As you can see here, it has this bar here at the bottom and this bar here at the top, and the idea of that is that it will actually push a rod down into the bottom of the door into the foot of the frame and obviously into the head of the frame as well and you will be able to operate that via a handle here where you could lift the handle up and then throw the bolt up and down. This kind of predates the multipoint locks that are available now and used extensively on composite and UPVC doors, so this would have been fitted. The other word you might have heard as well is "Monarch doors," so if that's the sort of thing that you're looking for, maybe this is the bolt that you're thinking of that you need.
So what I'd like to try and do is use this cylinder. It's a little bit fiddly because it's not actually in the door, but what I want to try and do is to actually mimic its operation for you. So at this moment in time you can see there that the bolt is deadlocked there, but if I was to throw that deadbolt back, to just push it back in there. Now, that's just the basic latch there, and you'll be able to operate the handle like normal and in and out you go. This you can hand, so you can turn it around and pop it in the other handing as well by twisting it around there.
So the idea would be if you wanted to just deadlock the door, just for a bit of privacy and a bit of security, you'd be able to pop the bolt in there like that and then just throw that centre bolt over there and that's just your secondary forms of security. Your primary form of security is if you were to lift up the handles, and I'll try to mimic that at the same time, and that now would throw a bolt up into the frame and down into the foot of the door. Now I'm in position now to be able to throw the bolt over like that, but I can also throw it over again and as you can see there now we have an extensive amount of bolt projection and of course then you've got the lock down into the foot and obviously up into the head of the door as well. So it stands to make for some reasonably good security in that respect.
So that's the actual basic operation, what I will do now is if you are thinking that's exactly what I'm looking for, that's exactly what I need, let's get some quick little measurements too, because that's probably quite important for you as well. So the actual faceplate of the lock here now and not the actual face, the faceplate itself would actually be part of the old lock here, because this is just a replacement module. The size of the actual plate itself is about 19 millimetres. The overall length of the actual plate there, this is just an approximate measurement here, I'm getting that in at around about 165 millimetres overall. The actual case, in respect to its case height there is 115 millimetres. The case depth there is 53 millimetres. And the backset, that's the distance from the centre here and here, to the leading edge of the door there, is about 35 millimetres, give or take a millimetre. And as you can see here as well, you've got a slightly different spindle arrangement here compared to the arrangement here and it would be using a spit spindle operation in which to get it all to work correctly.
So there you go, guys. Like you say, it's one of those locks that is no longer used in regards to the manufacture of doors anymore but there are still quite a few doors out there that may have this particular setup. So if this is what you're looking for, the original manufacturer was Union, I believe now it's branded under Yale, because ASSA Abloy now own Yale, Chubb and Union, so you'd probably see this now branded on our site under Yale.
