Every day, for one reason or another, people are trying to find a replacement lock on their door. They are asked the same questions; make the same mistakes, wasting time and nerves.
Why time and nerves? And what, you also think that choosing a lock to replace- a trifling matter?
In this article, we will describe how to avoid wasting time when replacing the Electronic Door Lock on the door. How to determine the model of the lock, how to choose the right one for its place, and what is required for replacement, except for the lock itself.
If you do not have time to read the information, delve into the nuances, go shopping, no one forces you to do this. Contact our service technician. Masters will find out the model of your castle, get it in the store for you, agree with you at a convenient time and make a replacement. Even a guarantee on everything will give!
What does it mean to replace the lock with a similar one?
This means that the newly purchased lock should go to the place of the old one without the slightest alteration. Right?
Remember, there are no locks “other, but with the same holes”! If you pick up a lock that has to fall into place of the old without any alterations of the door, you need EXACTLY THE SAME lock: the same model of the same manufacturer. There are no alternatives (within the framework of a specific material).
The manufacturer develops each model of its castle and produces it in individual sizes. The main reason for this: “tie” the buyer to their products.
If a lock or a lock cylinder is in the door, if you replace yourself, the best option is to remove them and go with them to a specialized store. You can make it even easier: send several photos of the castle from different angles to our work e-mail. Our specialists will determine the brand and model themselves, after which they will orient you according to availability and cost.
And even more: in 50% of cases, in order to determine the model of the lock, we only need to see a bunch of your keys and get accurate answers to two or three questions. But what if there is already no lock on the door for some reason?
In this case, for the selection of the Digital Door Lock, you must remove all existing dimensions of the seat. These include a case window, mounting holes, keyhole openings, openings for other elements of the lock (handles, latches, etc. (if any)).
Remember, all dimensions need to be measured in millimeters. Do not go to the store to pick up the lock, removing the size of a finger or a cigarette pack. Spend time as your time and specialist.
All round holes are measured from the center and no more!
When selecting a lock, there is no minor size, just one parameter is not enough – everything is important!
