General Details

Extra product information

Suitable for hinges with the common "knock out" pin. Hinges with pins at both ends need to be unscrewed, one end filed off, and replaced with the plastic pin. Hinge pack contains 3 pairs of plastic pins, tie loop, 2 brass screws.

Installation

1. Knock out steel pins in the existing hinge, and replace with plastic pins.
2. Remove wooden door stops at the handle side and overhead.
3. Refit and fasten the handle side door stop with the 2 screw-eyes supplied, 16 cm from the top and bottom of the door. Remove or cut off all nails. Do not remove hinge side door stop.
4. Remove or disable any latch or locking device which, with the door stop unscrewed, would prevent the door from swinging outwards.
5. Fasten the flexible tie in a loop above the top hinge, one end to the top door frame the other to the top of the door using wood screws and washers.
6. Attach the plastic covered instruction notice (provided) to the outside of the door at eye level
7. Refitting of the door after an emergency requires new plastic pins and refitting of the long door stop.

Method of Use

For normal inward swing of the doors the plastic pins operate as normal.
In an emergency with the door stop removed, the door is firmly pulled outwards - the pins will shear into pieces, the hinges will come apart, and the door will be loosely supported by the flexible tie.
