UPDATE: An eagle-eyed reader noticed that this is also a fire door, compounding the issues. You need to login or register to bookmark/favorite this content.

The screw heads seem to be on the secure side. So, remove the screws, remove the kit and reach in to unlock the deadbolt. At least this seems to be the least of the issues here. Tim S November 17, 2017 at 12:13 pm - Reply Am I seeing this right? Somebody seriously removed a top rod to make room for…a deadbolt? At least they remembered to match the finish on the panic hardware when they picked the deadbolt out. Also, am I correct in thinking that the bump between the top pair of hinges means that we have a fire label riveted to this frame that’s now been painted over? Lori November 20, 2017 at 9:15 am - Reply Yes Eagle Eye! 🙂 I zoomed in on the original image and there is a label on the frame that has been painted. – Lori Benni Malek February 14, 2019 at 11:31 am - Reply Lori, why cant someone technically use a fire pin on the top portion of the door (I’m not recommending it, I’m just wondering if its OK for a fire rated door?) Lori February 14, 2019 at 1:33 pm - Reply Hi Benni – The pin has to be installed where it was tested, and I don’t know of any manufacturers who test with it installed near the top of the door. – Lori Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Don't subscribe All Replies to my comments Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
