Yarra Ridge Lock
Reliable all-metal lock for aluminium and timber sliding doors.
Once the door is closed, the twin beaks are operated by key or lever to engage the catch plate.
- Increased knuckle clearance to operate key: The lock cylinder is set 37mm from door-jamb when door is closed
- Twin counteracting beaks engage an all-metal catch plate, providing resistance to jemmying and restraining the door against being lifted from its rails
- Self-adjusting catch plate automatically compensates for building movement and door carriage wear, to ensure correct latching after continued use
- A range of outer pull designs are available for various applications
- Anti-slam plunger prevents the door being shut with beaks extended, avoiding damage to beaks and catch plate
- Fits Industry-standard three-hole door cutouts (three 9mm diameter holes)
- Fits wide range of door stile thicknesses from 21.3mm to 46.4mm
- Suits left-closing and right-closing doors (lock is not handed)
- Australian designed and manufactured

The product must be installed according to the instructions included in the product packaging and the door should be apertured according to the door “cut-out” dimensions and tolerances shown.
Prior to fitting ensure that:
- Doors stored on site are stored in a clean dry area free from cement, lime, paint, acid etc.
During fitting of the lock ensure that:
- No metal swarf or other contaminants enter the lock body.
- The fixing screws do not damage the product finish.
After installation of the door ensure that:
- The door is correctly adjusted with the correct clearances.
- The lock engages the strike/catch plate correctly.
- The door is protected from building fall-out such as wet plaster, mortar, paint and welding splatter.
If the door becomes contaminated:
- Do not paint the lock body or faceplate.
- Remove wet plaster, cement, mortar and other droppings immediately, using ample clean water and a sponge or rag, to avoid permanent staining or scratching of the product finish. If removal is delayed and scraping becomes necessary the surface finish may suffer.
Maintainance & Cleaning
Annually inspect the door to confirm that the door operates with the correct clearances, closes and opens without obstruction. Confirm that the lock bolt or beak engages easily with the strike/catch plate when the door is closed and the lever or key is turned – adjust the door if necessary.
Annually check that when the door is closed, the lock can be locked by key and by the lever.
NB : The lock assembly has been lubricated for life, and should not be disassembled by the user.
Cleaning Powder Coatings
Every six months, powder coated surfaces should be cleaned to protect the finish. However, in areas where pollutants are more prevalent, especially in coastal or industrial regions, cleaning should be carried out every two to three months.
To clean the powder coated surface:
- Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
- Use a soft brush (non abrasive) or cloth and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt and other deposits. Do not use steel wool, scrapers, scouring liquids or powders to remove deposits as these permanently scratch the coating surface.
- Rinse off with clean fresh water.
Cleaning Chrome, Satin Chrome, Gold and Brass Finishes
Plated finishes are susceptible to tarnishing if they come into contact with moisture, wet paint, or water vapour.
All plated finishes should be coated with a non-abrasive furniture or car wax immediately after installation.
Plated finishes should be regularly wiped with a non-abrasive furniture or car wax, taking care not to scratch any protective finishes that are employed to protect the surface and prevent tarnishing.
