The square of your door

(5) the square of the handle.
Our handles are equipped with 7mm square. (French standard) If your lock is not yet installed, order a French lock, the standard square of which measures 7 mm.

If your lock is already installed, measure the square in place: Your lock requires an 8mm square, add a 7mm>8mm adapter on the square. Your lock requires a 6mm square, add two 6mm>7mm adapters in the handles.

The square is inserted into the follower (7) of the lock (2), it is used to connect the handles located on either side of the door. It is he who activates the lock. Its length is defined by the thickness of the door.

The length of the square proposed in our packs is suitable for doors 40mm thick. If your door is thicker or thinner, you can optionally choose a square suitable for your door.


(6)
the condemnation square.
It is used to link locking and unlocking on either side of the door.

Our locking and unlocking are equipped with 6mm square. (French and European standard) If the locking follower (8) of your lock prefers an 8mm square, you will need to provide an adapter (or sheath).

In France and Europe, locks require a 6mm square.
Please note: in the United Kingdom, the square of the condemnation measures 5mm, an adapter (or sheath) will be required.
