Winkhaus Split Spindle Pack Suits UPVC Door Handles and Locks Key Only Entry
The Winkhaus split spindle pack allows a door lock system fitted with an in built split spindle mechanism to be operated as normal from inside the property. However from the outside the door lock will not allow the latch to be operated via the handle. To move the latch in you must be a key holder and when the key is twisted it will move the latch in allowing the door to be opened.
This operation is particularly useful if you want to simply close the door behind you and be in another part of the house as you will be aware that the door can only be normally opened by someone whom has been given a key. Makes the door lock a key only entry system from outside when fitted to the relevant lock system.
However it is worth noting that you need to remember not to leave the property without a key in your possesion.
This split spindle pack will fit most types of UPVC door systems with an equally split spindle mechanism to both sides of the gearbox.
- Split spindles (1 x external 1x internal)
- 2 springs
Fitting tip: Spindles can be easily trimmed to length to suit the specific thickness of your door system or even a little packer put into the end of the handle to lengthen them.
How to know if your lock is a split spindle type: Remove your door handle by removing the handle screws from the inside of the door and have a look at the mechanism where the spindle passes through.
Take a good look into the centre of the existing spindle hole, you are looking for a split in the centre (the spindle square hole will look like it is in 2 parts. This split allows the inside and outside part of the spindle to move independently. If this is the case you will need a split spindle pack. When fitting the spindle you may find that it works in the reverse of the operation required. I: E the latch operates from the outside but not from the inside. If this is the case you will need to make an adjustment on the mechanism to reverse the operation.
These adjustments will vary depending on the multipoint lock mechanism manufacturer, the adjustments are made on the centre case of the mechanism. If you remove the lock and place it face down and look on the side you may see a slot to push a pin through from one side to the other or a latch to move up or down. On some mechanisms you need to actually remove the latch (normally has a screw in the end) and underneath there may be a screw to reverse the operation. If you need to know how to make these adjustments you will likely find a helpful picture and instruction on either the relevant lock make or our blog on our website.
Note: If you notice that the split in the mechanism is wider to one side than the other (not centrally split) it is likely that you will need the Fuhr spindle pack set part 2247, as this is built with one end (external side) allowing only a 4 mm insertion in to the spindle hole whilst the opposite side (internal face) has a 8mm only insertion dimension.
