+ How long is the Cinchlock steel bar that goes across the door?
The standard length is 44" for all models of the Cinchlock. We think its best to allow at least 4" of bar on both sides of the door so the 44" size fits perfect on most 36" doors.
Different lengths (shorter or longer) can be ordered for an additional cost. Please contact Mike Nydam at 408-515-5878 for more information.
+ What does the EZ-Install Clip do and where do I mount it when using the an HPL1?
The EZ-Install Clip is mounted directly across and at the same height as the door handle. The EZ-Install Clip is a mounting bracket that hold the CinchLock at the correct height while you tighten the knob on the HPL1. The EZ-Install Clip is an orderable option for the HPL1 and is highly recommended.
+ Does the Cinchlock CL work on outward opening doors that are on the outside of buildings?
The CinchLock-CL requires at least 3/16 of an inch clearance between the bottom of the door and floor in order to slide under it easily.
Typically, weather-stripping mounted on the bottom of an outside door is designed to seal the space between the bottom of the door and the floor. It keeps, air, water and moisture out of the building. It also interferes with the Cinchlock CL sliding easily under these outer doors.
If this is the case at your location, the HPL-1 provides an excellent alternative using a claw to grip the door handle or Safety/Panic Bar.
+ What's the main difference between the HPL-1 and HPL-2?
The HPL-1 has only one adjustable clamp for securing a door handle or panic bar. The HPL-2 uses the same steel bar but has 2 adjustable clamps for securing a set of double doors such as those typically found in gymnasiums.
+ Where are Cinchlock products manufactured?
Cinchlocks are manufactured in Morgan Hill, California by Club Volleyball Gear.
