Fitting Instructions

Appropriate safety wear should be worn when drilling and cutting. Please ensure you wear gloves and goggles etc. Below is an eight step plan for fixing to most up and over garage doors. Adaptation may be required for fixing to other types of doors.

Fixing bracket to the door

1. First, fit the solid steel angle bracket through which the lock bolt is designed to be slotted. The optimum
position is at the midpoint of the bottom of the door, with the bracket being held no more than 25mm
above the ground for the marking of the four drill hole positions in pencil. This gap will allow the full
engagement of the lock bolt.

2. Center punch the hole centers and drill clearance holes through the door for the fixing bolts.

3. Using ‘blind’ coach bolts, fix angle bracket to the door.

4. A reinforcing plate is used at the rear of the door, the coach bolts being secured using the washers and
nylon locking nuts supplied in the kit.

Base Preparation

5. An area 150mm square and 150mm deep should be drilled and chiseled from the concrete garage floor or
drive directly beneath the angle bracket. You may wish to increase the hole size particularly in looser
tarmac to create a larger retaining ball of concrete.

6. A base of gravel, topped with sand, should be laid at the bottom of the hole and tamped down until
compacted. This provides support for the base of the lock bolt receiving ground tube during the
final stages of installation.

7. The ground tube is now surrounded in concrete. Use the Super Lock Bolt to accurately position the
ground tube whilst concrete sets. Fit the black dust cap to prevent concrete and dirt damaging the lock.

8. Once the concrete has set, the door can be opened and a final troweling off will ensure that the area
blends in with the surrounding floor slab. A dust cap is provided to prevent the ingress of dirt into the
lock, and should be fitted at all times.

Lock Lubrication.
IMPORTANT – To ensure free movement of the lock, spray lock mechanism & ball bearings with WD40 (or equivalent) minimum every four months.
