Tech Tip     


Accurate installations are important with door hardware, but this is especially true of multipoint locking devices.  Insuring each locking point is properly engaged is vital to securing an opening and providing years of trouble free operation.Strike Locators and backplate lineart  Easy to follow templates, drilling round holes and job site adjustability are just a few key features in making installers happy and satisfying owners.  The Detex ECL-230X-TDB was designed by installers.  You are sure to admire the mounting plate, oversized / reversible strikes and never needing a cylinder collar, but that is just part of the story behind what makes this multipoint lock different. The ECL-230X-TDB has over 3" of rod / bolt adjustment that is easy to lock in place, making any installation quick and accurate.  Click here to view the installation video.
