I am looking for an electric door strike to work in conjunction with a fixed
tongue lock. The requirement is for the strike to allow the lock tongue to
pass freely when the door is closing but prevent it from opening again
All the strikes I have seen so far require that the door lock tongue retract
as the door closes to get past the fixed release plate on the strike.
Do these particular strikes have a name, as I am unable to search for one
without knowing what it is actually called.
I've never seen one of these. All the ones I've seen work only with
a slam lock, not with a dead bolt.
There are a lot of clever guys out there, and I'm sure they could make
one, but for a simple guy like me, it sounds a lot more complicated.
They do make wireless things that bolt and unbolt dead locks, with a
keychain transmitter. Would this help you?
Oh, yeah. You, too.
These are what I thought he wanted to, but after I r ead his post
again, I don't think so.
Good to hear.
Do you know what brand you have, or how much you paid? Or where you
got them if it was online, a chain, or anywhere near Baltimore?
A friend suggested it, and I thought it was silly, but six months
later I really want one. :)
