Furniture locks are for glass and wood products, particle Board, plywood, etc. the First does not require drilling or any difficult action from your side. They are easily and quickly mounted on the glass door. To install the second, you'll need a set of special tools and elementary carpentry skills.
Tool required for installation of furniture lock: electric drill, drill "Forstner" or pen a drill with a diameter of 20 mm, the screwdriver or screwdriver (flat or Phillips – it depends on the screws in the configuration of your castle), awl, pencil, eraser, ruler, small piece of wood, chipboard or plywood.
The installation of furniture consists of four operations. The first two of these, the most difficult and responsible. Is marking the installation location and drilling. The last two - mount the lock and the striker or area.
When marking, consider the width of the square body, the length and diameter of the cylinder faces the castle. As a rule, its length equal to the thickness commonly used in the manufacture of furniture materials and 16-18 mm. in Diameter usually 19 mm. Center drilling under lock and key is calculated by adding the radius of the mask (approximately 10 mm) with the distance from the rim of the mask to the edge of the extended tab lock. To this sum must be added a couple of millimeters of extra thickness for better hook with the response area. The resulting distance measured from the edge of the door or drawer in place of the castle. If the door is external, plyusuem the thickness of the wall to which it is closed.
In the center of the drilling is done with an awl a small indentation. It will help us to better center the drill. Drilling is best done from the front side and the reverse side of the tightly attach a piece of prepared us wood. While drilling of the product may be cleaved material. Tight lining will help to avoid this. Drill at low speed.
Once the hole is done, you can insert it in the lock. Next, awl it is planned to place screwing screws. Screwdriver or screwdriver to tighten the screws, securing the lock on the door or drawer. The front side is put on the cylinder faces of the lock trim ring. Sometimes you need little effort to drown tails ring deep. But this should be done carefully, because the ring itself can be soft and deformed.
After you install the lock, set the response area on the perpendicular to the surface. Consider the method of installation of the door or drawer – internal or external. In the external area you can just dub over the edge, and internal – will have to take into account the thickness of the door on which the lock, plus a possible deepening of this door in the closet or Desk. Then the procedure is repeated: the proposed holes with an awl, and fasten the screws.
Close the door or drawer. Check the castle. If the area clings to the tongue, it can bend or fit a needle file or flap disk grinder.
Ensuring that keys are not lost, they can hang plastic tag.
