4600 Heavy Duty Designer Deadlatch Handles

Description: The 4600 Heavy Duty Designer Deadlatch Handles are designed with a patented adjustable drive mechanism to operate the 4300, 4500, and 4900 Series Deadlatches and Dual Force 2190/2290 Interconnected Deadbolt/Deadlatch locksets.

Function: Designed to operate 4300, 4500, and 4900 Series Deadlatches with either an upward or downward motion. 4600 Deadlatch Handles can be retrofitted in the field onto the 2190/2290 Interconnected Deadbolt/Deadlatch. Shipped handed, but easily reconfigured to accommodate either door swing (MV and MN handle types cannot be re-handed). The patented adjustable drive mechanism allows the escutcheon to be set back from the door edge at the time of installation to provide additional clearance. Request-to-Exit (REX) switch optional to provide signal when lever is actuated.


Design: Designed to match the clean lines of a narrow stile door, the 4600 Heavy Duty Designer Series Deadlatch Handles combine aesthetics, function, and strength in a compact yet robust package. Offered in a wide range of lever designs and architectural finishes, the 4600 Series Deadlatch Handle complements the most contemporary door systems.

Handles: Available in standard and designer series levers to blend with existing architecture or to create a new design statement. Made from solid cast stainless, brass, or bronze, and finished to match any design requirement. Standard series lever styles (-01, -02, -03) are designed to return within 1/2” of the door face, as required by code in some areas. 

Escutcheon: Mounted base is secured by hidden screws and has two large helical compression springs. A 1/4” square heat-treated spindle is part of escutcheon assembly, which interlocks with the cam plug. Finished to match lever.

Cam Plug (4581): Used when matched with 4300, 4500, or 4900 Series Deadlatches. Secured to the latch body by cylinder setscrew, the cam plug is tied to the handle escutcheon by integral anti-rotation pins. Handing easily reversed with push-and-release cam design.

Options: Can be ordered for left or right hand door, but is easily reconfigured in the field to accommodate either door swing. Standard handles are for 1-3/4” thick doors. Available by special order for doors up to 3-1/4”. Fixed lever (dummy) kit available – use part number DTK-4600. Through-bolt mounting kit for back-to-back mounting on wood doors, use part number TBK-4600-XX (specify door thickness).

Standard Package: Packed individually with cam plug (as needed), fasteners, and optional equipment specified.
