Bullseye Intros Self-Service Option in Lefebure Line
Bullseye has introduced a new self-service option to the Lefebure Safe Deposit Line which offers the 7737 double little nose (brass or nickel finish) that functions without using a guard/prep key. According to Bullseye, costs are lowered and convenience increased by eliminating the need to provide a staff member with a guard/prep key. While the same lock and key setting procedures remain, the guard/prep side has been disabled allowing the lock to function with only the renter key. While Bullseye does not endorse the use of self-service or single key operated locks due to liability issues, the company said the increasing demand by financial institutions for this cost-effective option required it to respond.

Major’s HIT-21 Eases Installing Inside Cylinder on Existing Mortise Lock
Installing an inside cylinder on an existing mortise lock can be frustrating to center correctly. According to Major Manufacturing, its HIT-21 makes the job fast, accurate and easy becauswe the mortise lock doesn’t need to come out of the door. Just remove the outside cylinder, thread the HIT-21 into the mortise case until it contacts the mortise cavity on the opposite side. Next drill a pilot hole, then come from the outside in with a hole saw. Nothing could be easier! The HIT-21 is machined from steel with a hardened steel core for longevity. It is also supplied with a drill blank for use in your hole saw.
