Is there a red guard in the top of the cylinder, then it's M&C.

Installing with no extension

How to install the M&C cylinder in your door with no extensions: https://youtu.be/3qHXaqey6vQ

1 of 4: Mesurements

The M&C cylinder measures: inside = 35 mm, outside = 32 mm. Measured from the center cylinder screw in the door, or the corresponding hole in the cylinder.

2 of 4: Preparing the cylinder.

Remove the red guard and fasten the M&C rosette to the cylinder with the added screws.

3 of 4: Adding the backplate

Fasten the Danalock backplate to the M&C cylinder rosette. The Danalock V3 will later be mounted on the backplate.

4 of 4: Insert the cylinder

Insert the cylinder into the door and secure the cylinder with the added long screw.

Lenght options

Use the measuring guide if you need help. Below you can see which extension options you have. You can choose to extend only the inner or the outer part, or you can extend both as long as the total extension is 15 mm or less.

Pictured below are the cylinders with extensions. The two types of bridges are colored blue and orange. When extending the cylinder with more than 10 mm you have to use the long bridge. Otherwise, you will not be able to secure the bridge properly with the cylinder parts.

Cylinder Measurements

The default length of the cylinder is:
inside = 35 mm
outside = 32 mm

Extension guide: adding 5 or 10 mm (in total)

The setup is the same whether you need to extend the inside or the outside, as long as the total is equal to or less than 10 mm.

1 of 3: Dissembling the cylinder

Remove the two screws fastening the bridge to the inside part of the cylinder. Take out the cam (with the red guard - remember NOT to remove this yet). Fit the spacer (5 or 10 mm) on the outside cylinder part.

2 of 3: Reassembling the cylinder

Place the cam on the cylinder again, fitting it with the spacer. The bridge should only be disconnected from the inside part of the cylinder. Add the inside cylinder piece and fasten with two screws.

3 of 3: Installing in the door

When the cylinder is reassembled and has the right length, remove the red guard. Fasten the M&C rosette to the inside cylinder part and next the Danalock V3 backplate to the rosette. Insert the cylinder in the door and secure the cylinder with the added long screw. The cylinder is ready for mounting the Danalock V3.

Extension guide: adding 15 mm (in total)

The setup is the same whether you need to extend the inside or the outside, as long as the total is equal to 15 mm.

1 of 3: Dissembling the cylinder

Remove the bridge and replace it with the alternative (longer) one, only fastening the bridge to the outside cylinder part. Take out the cam (with the red guard - remember NOT to remove this yet). Fit the spacers (15mm i total) on the outside cylinder part.

2 of 3: Reassembling the cylinder

Place the cam on to the cylinder again, fitting it with the spacers added. Add the inside cylinder part and secure it to the bridge with two screws.

3 of 3: Installing in the door

When the cylinder is reassembled and has the right length, remove the red guard. Fasten the M&C rosette to the inside cylinder part and next the Danalock V3 backplate to the rosette. Insert the cylinder in the door and secure the cylinder with the added long screw. The cylinder is ready for mounting the Danalock V3.

Alternative extensions

If you need to extend the cylinder's inside length, the steps are basically the same as the two guides above. There are only a few things to remember:

  • - You cannot extend the total with more than 15 mm
  • - When you need to extend the cylinder with 15 mm you must use the longest of the two bridges included in the box.

 

It is very important that you leave the red guard in the cylinder cam until the cylinder is ready to be mounted in the door. The guard keeps the cylinder parts in place while adjusting it.

8. The right rosette spacer

To avoid pulling the cylinder out of place, find the right spacer or a spacer combination for insertion between the rosette and the back plate.

Unscrew the two breakable screws that hold the spacers together with the adjustable cylinder.

Choose one or more spacers so they are flush with the rosette surface. (See illustration).

IMPORTANT! Avoid pulling the cylinder out of place. It is important that the spacer is flush or protrudes from the hole in the rosette plate.

9. Break the screws to the right length

Depending on which spacer or spacer combination you chose, it is important that the screws that fasten the cylinder to the back plate are of the correct length. Use this chart to find the right length.

Use a wire cutter or two sets of pliers, or you can bend the screws back and forth several times in a vice to break them.
