Dual Force® 2190, 2290 Series Interconnected Deadbolt/Deadlatch

The 2190 Series Interconnected Deadbolt/Deadlatch provides access control and security for narrow stile aluminum (2190), hollow metal and wood doors (2290). Deadlatch and deadbolt capabilities are combined for fast, easy, and panic-proof exiting.


The Dual Force combines the access control capabilities of a latch with the security of a deadbolt. The key retracts and extends the deadbolt and deadlatch from either side. The exterior lever retracts the latch only. With the deadbolt projected, a simple turn of the inside lever retracts both the latch and deadbolt simultaneously, providing single-motion, panic-proof exiting. The Dual Force is available with electrified trim set for easy integration into an existing access control system. Standard and electrified trim sets are for out-swinging doors only; low profile trim set designed for in-swinging doors only.



Key or thumbturn projects or retracts deadbolt or deadlatch. Lock accepts any standard 1" [25.4 mm] length, 1-5/32" [29.4 mm] diameter mortise cylinder with MS® cam such as the 4036 Mortise Cylinder, available separately. Lock accepts cylinder from either or both sides.
Inside lever retracts both deadbolt and deadlatch when configured with interconnect feature. Outside lever retracts latch only. Latch holdback feature activated or deactivated by turning key to retract latch. Sliding holdback button on faceplate down will hold back latch and sliding up will release. The 2190 Series Interconnected Deadbolt/Deadlatch are designed to operate with the uniquely designed strike plate that comes standard in the package from the factory.
