1.1 “Checking the Latch”
The Latch is the most important component to the CAL “Double-Bolt” system. Before you install any part of the system to your door jamb or door, make sure the latch correctly fits your particular door jamb depth. The latch must fit perfectly in the door jamb in relationship to the height of the latch and the door jamb. There are two (2) common depths for the door jambs in sliding doors. (5/8 or 1-¼) The latch provided in this system is designed for standard 5/8 door jamb depth. The system also includes two (2) spacers to increase the height of the lath up to ¾.
Check the depth of door jamb by inserting latch into the door jamb. The flat drilled section of the latch should fit flat to the back of the door jamb. The leading edge of the latch must overlap the interior wall of the door jamb frame. If the door jamb is slightly deeper than the height of the latch, place spacers on back of latch and re-check depth. If the depth of the door jamb is 1-¼” call the CAL Help Line 1 (877) HELP-004. An operator will assist you in checking your door jamb depth and determinate the correct latch you need. CAL will immediately ship you a replacement latch at no cost to you.
Installing the “LATCH”
2.1 Open Sliding Door
If the sliding door has an existing tock, open lock and slide door to fully opened position.
2.2 Position Latch
The latch should be installed above the existing lock. Where small children are present, consider a position approximately half the distance between the existing door and the height of the sliding door.
2.3 Install Latch
Place latch inside the doorjamb. (Figure-A). Make sure latch correctly, fits doorjamb. (See – “Checking the latch”). If the latch requires spacers for additional height, please latch over indentation in spacer and check height. If second spacers are needed, stack second space to back of stack with raises guides fitting first spacer cavities. Check height for final fit.
Before final latch installation, it may be necessary to remove any insulation preventing the latch from fitting snuggles against inside edge.
Remove only enough insulation necessary to install latch correctly if needed.
Hold latch firmly in position and mark holes (Figure-B). Remove latch and drill 1/8” Pilot holes. (Figure-C). Add spacer as needed to latch and place over pilot holes. Install latch with 1-½ screws supplied with hardware wit.
2.4 Close Door (Figure-D).
If the door does not close correctly over the latch, do not force.Forcing the door over the latch may cause damage to your door and latch.
Check that latch us seated as close to the side if frame as possible. If the latch is not correctly positioned, try bending latch bolt receptor away from the door by applying pressure on landing edge and bending away. (Figure-E). Do not bend too far, as this will affect the operation of installed lock assembly.
