How do I change the handing of a FUHR door bolt?

On most FUHR locks, to change the handing you remove the small grub screw on the side of the lock case adjacent to the latch plate with a 2mm allen key.

Remove the latch and turn in it 180º vertically, place it back into the opening and secure the grub screw back in place.

The FUHR 871 and FUHR 881 door locks are supplied handed, this cannot be changed, so please ensure you order the correct handing for the application.

How do I adjust FUHR keeps/strikers?

Hook and keep alignment:

The hook keep should be aligned using the guideline on the hook plate. Ensure the hook engages correctly avoiding friction on which can result in damage to the hook, there should be a 2mm gap between the line on the hook plate and the flat of the hook as shown in the diagram.
