FF: Electric Strike Mismatch

Keith Krienke of the University of Calgary lockshop sent me today’s Fixed-it Friday photos (the lockshop is not responsible for this installation!).  You may have to take a good long look to really see what’s going on.

    Assumption that the card reader was placed where it was easiest to route the wiring. With only half the picture of the door its very difficult to know what the picture is showing, possibly an external air entry point.

    • Lori says:

      Well, there was no card reader and no outside trim, so nobody noticed the problem until someone decided to add a card reader.

    For those that do not notice they have used a electric strike intended for a cylindrical lock instead of a strike designed for a panic device.

  3. Eric Rieckers says:

    The scary part is…..that it works. And whomever did the work did a good job. Wrong application but a good job.

  4. Peter Schifferli says:

    Appears they used an electric strike intended for a mortise lock, should probably have used the 6111 which would engage the deadlatch trigger on the 99 exit device.

  5. Lach says:

    Does the electric strike even open enough to allow the latchbolt to clear it? If not then the whole thing is even more of a hot mess.

    • Lori says:

      It doesn’t, but nobody noticed because there was no card reader or outside trim on the door. When someone wanted to add a card reader recently, the problem was discovered.

  6. Tony Klagenberg says:

    Well thought out. Not. Rim electric strike anyone?

  7. Laurie says:

    I immediately saw three things: 1) the strike does open enough to clear the latch, 2) it should have been a RIM strike, 3) however none of this mattered as there is no way to open the door from the secure side. No external trim or D-handle.
