Install Falcon Exit Device

Install Falcon Exit Device

Welcome to Locksmith Channel!

Today, we’re going to be installing a Falcon exit device crash bar on a door that is constantly beat up by skis, boots, luggage racks, and anything else you can imagine that would be traveling through the hallways of a ski resort. In the original equipment that we are pulling off the door, I found all kinds of broken pieces. The first and most important thing that I will be focusing on with this project is to solve the problem long term. The way we can do this most effectively is to eliminate as many protruding and moving parts as possible. Getting rid of the original lever, in this case, will remove the biggest moving part and by doing so, will do away with many of the parts that are continuously breaking. After the lever is disassembled, we will go ahead and install the cover plate to cover up the previous holes and damage from a very rough installation. You can tell by looking at these holes that they were not precision drilled and no jig was used. This particular cover plate is a matte black one that is readily available at nearly any hardware store. Once the cover plate is in place, I can go ahead and re-install my jig to get a hole that works. Refer to the instructions to ensure that you have proper drill points and installation holes so that you can align the holes for the two through bolts that are going to go through this plate and the rim cylinder that will be mounted outside. Once finished, take a moment to admire and appreciate the fact that there are no protruding parts that are going to get caught on ski boots, ski jackets, etc. Next, we will need to trim down the tailpiece with the Dremel so that it fits nicely. The bolts that are locking the exit device to the pull trim are actually going completely through the door, so this is the strongest bond possible. You want to make sure that the through bolts and screws are set all the way and that nothing is sticking out. This will ensure that nothing is sticking out later down the road. After installation on this side, the device is hanging down just a little bit and there is a tiny spot that didn’t get painted. Because of the three dimensional sides of that gap, the maintenance team decided that it would simply be painted with touch up paint.

On the back side of the panic exit device, I am, again, going to be utilizing through bolts. I do this whenever I can on wooden doors, as wood screws are a particularly bad idea for nearly any application that is going to sustain a beating day to day. When installing the strike, make sure you have the proper gap. I had to move the exit device down a little so it was not being installed on the three dimensional trim. For this project, I drilled and tapped with Milwaukee combos that worked on this application. Unfortunately, I was unable to install the heavy-duty handle that came with the device because they only sent one screw and one HD washer. For the time being, we have mounted a temporary handle and will be back upon arrival of the correct hardware.

WLS: Storefront Door Exit Indicator Installation Methods

This article is courtesy of Wayne Winton of WaynesLockShop.com. For more “How-To” pictures and videos, including the largest collection of online locksmith training videos, please visit WaynesLockShop.com.

Introduction

Today we are installing a storefront door exit indicator. Exit indicators allow building occupants an unmistakable notification of the lock’s status: either locked or open/unlocked. When an exit indicator is used in conjunction with appropriate signage, such as a sticker that reads “THIS DOOR TO REMAIN UNLOCKED DURING BUSINESS HOURS”, building/life safety codes can allow deadlocks/bolts to be used in lieu of exit devices. This ability is especially important to storefront businesses who desire the extra security that a deadlock/bolt offers. In some cases, the AHJ may also allow cylinders on both sides of the door to be utilized as long as an exit indicator is in use.
Multiple manufacturers offer exit indicators that work in conjunction with storefront door mortise locks. Perhaps the most popular exit indicator is Adams Rite’s 4089. The 4089 exit indicator is compatible with Adams Rite’s MS1837, MS1850S, MS1850S-050, SCH1850S, MS1850SN, MS1850SN-050, SCH1850SN, MS+1890, MS1950, MS1950-050 series deadlocks as well as their 1870, 1870HM, 1877 series cylinder-operated flushbolts.

Installation

Like most jobs, there is more than one way to do something and installing a new exit indicator is no different.
The first way is with a jig and router. In the video below, I am using the HIT-45AR2 template with the HIT-45 modular clamp. It allows for a quick, professional, factory-like installation in the field. Also in the video is a second way: “freehanding” with a step-bit and a drill. Take a moment to check out both methods in action as well as a few additional tips.

WLS: Installing a Falcon SC81 Door Closer

This article is courtesy of Wayne Winton of WaynesLockShop.com. For more “How-To” pictures and videos, including the largest collection of online locksmith training videos, please visit WaynesLockShop.com.
Today we are installing a Falcon SC81 door closer. The SC81 is a medium-duty closer suited for light- to medium-duty, interior or exterior applications. It is is non-handed and fits the very popular 12″ x 3/4″ footprint, the same as Norton’s 8000 and LCN’s 1450 series closers. The SC81 has been tested to meet ANSI/BHMA A156.A Grade 1 standards and comes with a 10 year warranty. For more information, see pages 8-11 in Falcon’s Closers Catalog.

The SC81 packaging and label.


As with all door hardware installations, proper layout and preparation is important to ensure a quality, long-lasting installation. Start by taking a moment to tape your installation instructions to a wall next to the door. This allows you to easily reference them throughout the installation.

Falcon SC81 installation instructions.


The Falcon SC81 can be mounted in different configurations, such as regular arm or parallel. Since this installation will be a regular arm mount, we need to identify the appropriate instructions for it.

Now that we know our measurements, let’s start making for them. An automatic center punch makes this part of the installation fast.

With one hole marked, we can use the closer body to mark the remaining 3 holes.

All 4 holes marked.


This installation, like all commercial applications, should be through-bolted. We start by drilling a pilot hole through all 4 mounting holes.

In addition to the closer’s body, we also need to mark for the closer arm’s shoe.

Like the door closer body, we can use the closer arm’s shoe to mark the remaining hole.

With all holes marked, we can now install the closer. We start by enlarging the holes for the closer’s body and attaching the through-bolts.

Through-bolts started.


With the through-bolt’s tightened, we can then mount the shoe to the frame.

Once you finish mounting the closer and arm/shoe, we can adjust the latch and sweep valves to put the final touches on the installation.

Once we are satisfied with the closing speed(s), all that’s left is to apply the closer’s cover and pack up!

Finished installation.
