Examine your existing nightlatch and make a note whether your lock turns left or right
Using a screwdriver, take apart your existing nightlatch case and mounting plate. This will enable you to remove the lock from the front of the door at the same time.
Remove your existing staple from the doorframe. Then, cut out and position the template provided, which can be found in the installation guide, on your door, lining it up with the existing 32mm hole on your door. Then, mark the central point where the 15mm hole is to be drilled. Using a 15mm timber drill bit, drill this hole, ensuring you drill from both sides of the door and making sure the hole is straight.
Place the electronic keypad in the hole on the outside of the door with the battery cable though the 15mm hole.
Then, using the ruler on the template, measure 17mm from the door surface and mark the connecting bar, ensuring it is horizontal. Remove the lock from the door and carefully cut the connecting bar at the marked point.
Put your new digital lock back on your door and attach the additional handing plate onto the cylinder fixing surface using the self-adhesive pad provided and fix the plate as per your earlier note, left or right, with the correct direction text facing towards you.
