Often purchased door leaf or finishedanalogue are purchased without locking devices. What to do in this case? You can call a specialist. However, this is fraught with additional costs and violation of confidentiality. It is quite realistic to perform a sidebar in the interior door yourself. Let us consider in more detail how to do this, and what will be required to conduct the manipulations?
First you need to measurevertical bar door leaf width. The measured value must be at least 40 millimeters in thickness, otherwise the installation of the locking device does not make sense. Then you need to purchase a suitable lock.
In today's market there are manyvarieties of devices that can be installed with or without handles. Locking the lock in the interior door is carried out depending on the type of product. Variations with handles first require the installation of the main mechanism. After this, the handles are fixed. In the second variant, manipulation looks even simpler. Some consumers purchase latches. They are quite practical and convenient. However, for self-installation, they require certain calculations and skills, as well as special tools.
It is not so difficult to perform an independentlock the lock in the interior door, if you study in detail the instructions below. Do not rush while carrying out work. It is also necessary to observe accuracy and accuracy at all stages. Preliminary it is necessary to prepare a tool for inserting locks into interior doors. This includes a screwdriver, chisel, drill, screwdrivers, drills, as well as fasteners.
Locking the lock in the interior door with your own hands
Usually the handle is in the middle part of the door. Before starting the main work, measure 1 meter from the floor. It is at this level that there will be room for a future hilt. With the help of a drill and a feather drill, an opening is made in the end of the blade for the larva of the locking device. The diameter of the drill is selected commensurate with the depth of the hole and the dimensions of the main mechanism. Then a mark is placed on the door under the support plate. On this contour with the help of a chisel create a level platform.
The nest under the handle is made by drilling method. The work must be done carefully and slowly, immediately after the appearance of the drill from the reverse side of the blade, the machine should be stopped. The resulting hole will serve as a center for subsequent manipulations. Now start drilling with the other part of the door.
The final stage
Some users believe that the lock of the lockin the interior door can be performed through drilling the canvas. This approach can lead to significant damage to it. It is best to do this procedure with preliminary marking of holes for self-tapping screws. In these nests screw the fastener, which will serve as a lock for the locking device. Then the handle and the latch plate are mounted.
At the final stage, the density and quality are checkedwork of the castle. If necessary, the tongue of the mechanism is bent or the lining itself is rearranged. For a simple interior door, this method is the best option. The mechanism can be rearranged to any convenient place on the canvas. If the structure is made of other materials, it would be appropriate to use a different approach.
Locking the lock in the interior door with a milling cutter
Using a manual milling cutterlocking devices of doors and fixing loops. Of the several types of instruments, a universal submersible type model is most often used. With work, a man who can handle such a device for the first time can well cope. The instrument itself is a compact vertical machine that is easy to use.
With the help of such a device, the following operations can be performed:
- Prepare niches for loops and locks.
- Cut profiles of different configurations.
- Align the workpiece along the edges.
- Make a groove of any shape along with the gutters.
In addition to the complete set and the sheet itself, the following set for inserting locks into the interior doors will be required:
- Drill and screwdriver.
- A hammer.
- Screwdriver Set.
The whole process consists of several stages:
- The door is fixed in a vertical position on the side.
- The marking for the tongue of the locking device is made.
- The lock is applied to the canvas.
- The drawn line should be aligned with the center of the hole.
- Pencil marks the top and bottom of the fixing bar. A similar operation is performed for the body part.
- Using a square on the end, straight lines are drawn.
- Mills for inserting locks into interior doors are selected depending on the depth, configuration and width of the mechanism or blade.
- As a reference mark, a paint tape is used to not cut more material than necessary.
- Then another milling cutter is inserted, oriented to the size of the bar.
- Adjusts the depth of finish required for the work (corresponds to the thickness of the bar).
- In the central part, a neat groove is made and a niche is prepared for the body part of the lock.
- Using the drill, the required number of holes is drilled.
- Remains of wood are extracted by means of chisel and hammer.
- The planting walls must be leveled.
- After checking the operation of the mechanism, the main device and handles are mounted.
Door handles are mounted on both sides of the doorcanvases. At the same time, one should not forget about the presence of decorative linings, which are attached with screws. After that, fix the hexagonal or square rod. This element is designed to connect the inner and outer handle to each other.
After that, the door is closed and on the doorframe markposition of the latch tongue. The length of this part is checked with a ruler, after which all measurements are repeated on the box. The receiving overlay is combined with the marked marks, surrounded by a pencil. Drilled holes are drilled from the resulting contour. The seat of the lining is brought to the desired configuration using a chisel. Elements are attached using self-tapping screws.
Locking the lock in the interior door for a product fromMDF requires the participation of specialists. This is due to the peculiarity of the location of the wooden beam (the rest of the canvas is hollow). If you try to install a locking device at random, you can completely ruin the whole structure. Professionals have all the necessary tools and relevant knowledge, allowing to install the lock without violating the functional and external qualities of the door leaf.
