Lockey Latchbolt: Magnetic Type (for 1150 & 1600)

A magnetic Lockey latchbolt will hold up much better than a spring latchbolt on heavy doors and gates and in high traffic areas because it is retracted and is not hit each time the door is closed.

Specifications

  • ACCESSORIES: items to use with keyless locks (closers, guards, handles, lube, software, stops, security screws, trim plates, etc.).
  • DOOR THICKNESS: fits standard doors (1-3/8" to 2" thick).

Features

  • A magnetic latchbolt has a small but quite strong magnet in the extended end of the latchbolt and another one in the special strike plate that comes with it. This type of magnetic door latchbolt is normally retracted inside the lock until the door is closed and the latchbolt is lined up with the strike plate in the door frame. When everything lines up, the attraction between the two magnets pulls the latch bolt out of the door and into the strike plate box which latches and locks the door.

  • This type of latchbolt will hold up much better than a spring latchbolt on heavy doors and gates and in high traffic areas because it is retracted and is not hit each time the door is closed. The magnetic bolt is also a bit stronger than a spring latchbolt because it is a little longer and does not have a diagonally cut face. Instead, it is shaped more like a deadbolt.

  • Magnetic latchbolts come with and must be used with a special strike plate that has an embedded (recessed) magnet.

  • Magnetic latchbolts are only available on the Lockey 1150 and 1600 Heavy-Duty Locks.

  • Magnetic latchbolts require a small modification in order to be used with a Lockey Gatebox. The rectangular face plate of the latchbolt has to be trimmed off slightly so that it will fit flush on the gate box.
