Deadlocks

Q: Can the RITE Touch be reverse handed?

A: The RITE Touch ships from the factory in left hand configuration. It can be re-handed for right hand door configuration using a few simple steps: 

  1. Remove the screws to disassemble the front body
  2. Separate the U-frame
  3. Rotate and reposition the U-frame
  4. Reassemble the front body

For complete re-handing instructions, please refer to the installation manual included in the product packaging. 

Q: I forgot my user code for the RITE Touch. How do I restore my lock to factory default settings?

A: The RITE Touch can not be restored to factory default settings. Please take steps to ensure that the user code is not lost or forgotten and the master code is kept secure as well. 

Q: How do I add or delete individual cards for the RITE Touch?

A: All active cards must be presented to either add or delete individual cards. This requires gathering all credentials in circulation to make a change. 

Q: What is the difference between the MS1850S & the MS1850A

A: The difference between the MS1850S & the MS1850A lies within the composition of the projected bolt. The MS1850S utilizes an eight ply laminated stainless steel bolt whereas the MS1850A consists of an eight ply zinc plated steel bolt. Functionally and dimensionally the two deadlocks are exactly the same. In addition, both versions meet ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 standards. 

Q: Does Adams Rite offer an ADA acceptable lever to work the MS1850 series deadbolts? 

A: The 4550 lever handle is an accessible handle that operates the MS1850 series deadbolts. A downward 90º motion unlocks the deadbolt and an upward 90º turn locks the unit from the inside. The lever can be installed in place of an existing key cylinder or thumbturn on the inside of the door.
