1. Check the current door/frame alignment

Because the bolt on this lock is extended automatically, it is important that the door and frame are aligned. Use this checklist to determine if your current alignment will work without any adjustment.

  • I can lock the door without pushing, pulling or lifting the door.
  • My door alignment— the ability to lock the door easily and smoothly— stays the same with changing seasons.
  • When the door is closed, there is space for the deadbolt to extend 1” into the frame when locked.

If you could not check every box in the checklist, you will need to adjust your door and/or frame. Please visit for more information.

2. Check door/frame dimensions

Measure the dimensions shown. If your door dimensions do not match, you will need to change your door preparation.

info If your door is thicker than 1 3/4”, you will need a thick door kit. Please call Customer Service at 1-888-805-9837.

info Mark your crossbore and backset measurements on this page. You will need these measurements for installation. Either measurement is normal.


3. Install bolt and strike

3a Adjust bolt length, if necessary.

  • If the backset (see step 2) of your door was 2 3/8” (60 mm), you do not need to do anything. Proceed to step 3b.
  • If the backset (see step 2) of your door was 2 3/4” (70 mm), you need to adjust your bolt. Twist the faceplate until the button pops into the 2 3/4” space.

Install bolt and strike

3b Change the faceplate, if necessary.

info In step 3c, your installation will depend on which kind of door edge you have.

Change the faceplate

3c Install the bolt into the door.

3d Install the strike into the frame.

4. Install the Touchscreen Assembly

4a Install the Touchscreen on the outside of the door.

info The clips snap into the crossbore (see step 2) to assist in holding the keypad on the door.

info The Touchscreen Assembly should install smoothly. If it does not, check that the bolt is set to the correct backset (see step 2).

Install the Touchscreen

info NOTE: If you have a crossbore (see step 2) that is slightly less than 2 1/8” (54 mm), the lock may not install smoothly. You can remove the spacer. Always remove the spacer for a 1 1/2” (38 mm) crossbore.

4b Install the Support Plate on the inside of the door.

info Make sure the Touchscreen and Support Plate are straight on the door before tightening the screws. Tighten screws fully to prevent the lock from moving over time.
