For a drive-in latch:
Align collar opening with the shape of the bolt and slide it on until the catch pins of latch snap into the pinholes of the collar. Install latch with the slant of bolt facing in the direction that the door closes. Use a woodblock to install the latch. Note, should collar require removal, squeeze collar hard at sides and remove.

Install latch and Strike 4
d. Install strike plate onto door jamb using two small screws. Minor loose door fit may be reduced by adjusting tang. Note, the lock will not lock properly if the smaller bolt of latch enters the strike hole. Reposition strike plate if required.

Install Interior Assembly 2

Small Screws

Note: To aid insertion of screws, approach the screw holes with the screw loaded onto the screwdriver.

8. Mount the levers.

a Check both the interior and the exterior assemblies, to make sure the set screw is located on the opposite side, (the side furthest away from the latch bolt). If correctly positioned proceed to step c, if it is not on the proper side, remove and switch the set screw as directed in the following step – step b.

Mount the levers 1

b. Using the tool provided, remove the set screw by unscrewing it in a clockwise direction (this is the reverse direction of what might feel normal). Reposition set screw to  the other side and screw it in fully, using a counterclock direction (again this is the reverse of the normal direction).

Mount the levers 2

c. Install interior lever and tighten set screw clockwise.

Mount the levers 3

d. To install the exterior lever, first remove the key from the cylinder and insert the cylinder into the lever shaft, making sure the sleeve of cylinder is positioned near the keyway. Note that the cylinder will not seat back fully at this time. Slide the lever on smoothly, aligning ribs inside the lever with the lever shaft (lever will not seat all the way until completing step e).

Mount the levers 4

e. Insert the key into the cylinder and rotate it clockwise to the horizontal position, then press the lever to seat into the assembly. With the key still in the horizontal position, tighten the set screw clockwise to secure the lever.

Mount the levers 5

8. Continued…..

f. Test the locking and unlocking function.
If you cannot lock the unit from the exterior or cannot rotate the interior turn piece, proceed with the following steps to remedy the situation. 1. Insert the key and rotate clockwise to the horizontal position.  2. Loosen the set screw and pull the lever away from the unit, about 1/4”. 3. Rotate the key 180°  clockwise. With the key remaining in the horizontal position, push the lever back to the seat and tighten the set screw. 4. Test the locking and unlocking function and repeat these steps if required.

Mount the levers 6

LEVER NOTES

Action of exterior lever: When the unit is in the locked position the exterior lever is still allowed to turn, but it will not retract the latch. When the unit is in the unlocked position, the exterior lever will turn firmly, retracting the latch for entry.

Important note should you need to remove the exterior lever: 1. insert the key into the exterior lever and rotate clockwise to a horizontal (unlocked) position. 2.  Loosen set screw and pull the lever, cylinder, and key – away from keypad assembly.

Warning IconImportant note: This product has a panic-free interior, which will allow the interior lever to always retract the latch and allow exit. Caution: if you exit and plan re-entry without a key or code, make sure the turn button on the interior lever is in the unlocked (horizontal) position before exiting.

9. Install batteries

a. Install 4 new AA Alkaline batteries into the battery pack.

Install the new batteries as indicated in the illustration. Make sure batteries lie flat in the holder. For best performance, rechargeable batteries are not recommended.

■ Press the 12 button once to get number 1.
■ Press the 12 button once to get number 2.
■ Then press the 56 button once to get number 5.
■ Then press the 56 button once to get number 6.
■ Finally press the 78 button once to get number 8.

Programming a User Code

● A programmed code can be from four (4) to eight (8) digits long.
● For maximum security an 8 digit code is recommended.

15. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

Q: How long will the Smart Code operate on a set of batteries?
A: Based on 15 operations per day, a single set of Alkaline batteries will operate the SmartCode for over 2 years.
Q: What type of batteries do you recommend?
A: For best results, use new non-rechargeable Alkaline batteries only.
Q: I just installed a Smart Code on my door but it does not operate correctly
A: Make sure you have installed the cylinder properly, review step 8.
Q: I removed the battery pack momentarily and my lock does not work anymore.
A: The system did not initialize properly due to the remaining charge. To correctly perform the following:

a. Remove the battery pack
b. Press “Program” button three times
c. Wait 10 seconds.
d. Insert battery pack.
e. The system should flash the Green LED and beep, indicating proper initialization
f. Repeat a-d if initialization failed

Q: I am planning to be away for several months; will my lock operate when I get back?
A: When the system is idling, it consumes minimum power (very close to battery shelf life.) With alkaline batteries, the lock should be operable after years of idle.  See also Questions and Answers below.

Q: What settings should I use to get the maximum battery life out of my lock?
A: Set “Status LED” (SW1) and “Auto-lock” (SW2) to the off position.
