- Fix lock in place using stainless steel clamp plate. Bolt support plate and 2 stainless steel countersunk fixing bolts supplied.
- Drill clearance hole in gatepost to receive the deadbolt/latchbolt. Slot this hole vertically to allow for gate sag. Fix strike plate and bend back so that the latchbolt slides smoothly.
- Ensure latchbolt moves freely without binding on gate or frame.

To change the code:
- Check that the original code is working on both keypads. To remove the keypads, insert a flat screwdriver into the hole in the forend plate and lever out the keypad retaining plate. This will release one keypad. Slide out the lock mechanism and the other keypad can then be removed by accessing the screws through the lock case.
- Turn the keypad over and remove the 4 red screws.
- Lift off the covering panel. Be careful as there are 10 springs attached to this panel. Note that the red tumblers relate to the code shown above. Also note that the C tumbler is uncoloured and should NOT be removed.
- To change the code hold the keypad with the code buttons down, then depress and hold the C button. If this is not done, you may damage some of the internal components. Reposition the tumblers to the new code (red tumblers is facing the outside of the lock body. Also, ensure that the coloured mark is facing upwards. If any one tumbler is upside down or the wrong way round, the lock will not work, and if forced, will break the internal components. The code must always start with “C”.
- Replace the covering panel and tighten the 4 red screws.
- The code is now changed. Check to see that it is working correctly and make a note of the code for future reference. Once satisfied that the lock is working correctly, refit keypads to the lock case.
Every 3 months:
- Remove the keypads from the lock.
- Spray the inside of the lock thoroughly with WD40 (or equivalent) through the tumbler holes at the back of the lock.
- Spray all the fixing accessories and the latch with WD40 (or equivalent).
- Push each of the buttons and rotate the knob several times to make sure that the lock is working smoothly.
