hinge side of the door jamb. Open the hinges and set the hinged security
door on the 5mm packer such that the door is perpendicular to the opening.
Ensure there is a 1mm gap between the butt of the top hinge and the exterior face of
the door jamb. Pre-drill a hole in the centre of the slotted hole of the hinge and insert
one of the 8 Gauge — 25mm phillips screws. Repeat this for the bottom hinge.

the door against the jamb and mark a line on the jamb level with the mark on the front
of the central lock body. Place a mark at 20mm in from the exterior
edge of the door jamb if your door is mounted flush with the exterior edge. Otherwise, you
will need to determine the location of your striker plate.
Align the bottom & inside edge of the template with the marks just made on the door jamb.
Ensure you take note of where the bolt recess should be in relation to these marks for correct
placement of the template. Mark bolt recess and screw hole positions
with a pencil. Using a chisel remove the timber to form a
bolt recess at least 20mm deep. Now, Pre-drill the screw hole positions.
Finally, Fix the striker plate to the door jamb with two phillips screws.
Please note, for Triple Locks it will now be necessary to fit auxiliary striker plates
using a similar process. Please download the written help guide for further information
on this process. Next, we’re going to fit the stop bead.
Close your hinged security door. Start 4 nails in the top piece of stop bead
at equal spacing’s. Keep the two end nails in 40mm from the end.
Place top piece of stop bead gently against security door. Hold the lock side of the stop
bead with one hand and open the door slightly to allow you to hit the nail with a hammer.
Repeat this for the remaining 3 nails. Try to leave a 1mm gap between the stop bead and
the door on the hinge side. Set lock side stop bead into position and
mark length with a pencil. Cut stop bead to length with utility knife.
Start 7 nails in the lock side stop bead at equal spacing’s. Keep the two end nails in
40mm from the end. Place lock side stop bead gently against security
door. Hold the top of the stop bead with one hand and open the door slightly to allow you
to hit the nail with a hammer. Repeat this for the remaining 6 nails.
Set hinge side stop bead into position and mark length with a pencil. Cut stop bead to

Place hinge side stop bead gently against security door. Slide the stop bead slightly
away from the door, about 1mm. Hold the top of the stop bead with one hand and open the
door slightly to allow you to hit the nail with a hammer. Repeat this for the remaining
6 nails. Countersink all 18 nails with a nail punch. To fit the bug seal, pre-drill in three places
near the top edge. 80mm in from each end and centre.
The bug seal fits on the outside of the security door at the bottom with the raised edge facing
out. Set the bug seal in this position by resting
it on the mohair. The ends of the bug seal should be flush or slightly in from the edge
of the door. Pre-drill through one of the end holes into
the door. Insert one of the 4-4 rivets.
Repeat this process for the remaining holes. We can now fit the pneumatic door closer.
Hold jamb bracket against hinge side jamb, 40mm down from top of door jamb with a gap
between door and bracket of 12 to 25mm. Mark & pre-drill 3 holes. Fix bracket to jamb

and hold with hold open washer. Close security door. Place the end of the rod into jamb bracket
and tongue of closer into the door bracket. Position door bracket level on door and mark
visible slotted hole. Remove the closer and pre-drill hole in centre of slotted mark.
Fix the bracket to the door with a 12mm screw. Now you can Re-fit the closer by first placing
the tongue of the closer into the door bracket then the rod into the jamb bracket.
