The use of the privacy pin is quite simple. For locking a door, just push the pin next to the lever. For unlocking the door, just turn the lever handle.
If someone tries to open the door from the outside after the pin has been pressed the lever handle moves but the door is still locked.
This type of locking technology is new in Europe. Key- and turn&release-roses on doors to bedrooms or toilets are not necessary anymore because the locking actuation mechanism is combined in the lever rose.
The mortise lock is compatible with almost every Karcher Design lever in satin stainless steel and polished stainless steel.
The new lock is designed and dimensioned according to the German standards so it can be installed in all German standard doors.
