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 February 10, 2019 at 10:14 am - Reply Well, there was no card reader and no outside trim, so nobody noticed the problem until someone decided to add a card reader. – Lori Al Dennis February 8, 2019 at 3:02 pm - Reply 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. Eric Rieckers February 8, 2019 at 3:37 pm - Reply The scary part is…..that it works. And whomever did the work did a good job. Wrong application but a good job. Peter Schifferli February 8, 2019 at 3:46 pm - Reply 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. Lach February 8, 2019 at 7:38 pm - Reply 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 February 10, 2019 at 10:15 am - Reply 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. – Lori Tony Klagenberg February 9, 2019 at 7:14 am - Reply Well thought out. Not. Rim electric strike anyone? Laurie February 10, 2019 at 12:21 pm - Reply 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. Lori February 10, 2019 at 7:19 pm - Reply EXACTLY!! Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
