The Friday Lock is installed using your existing lock, making installation easier and safer. Friday Lock is a retrofit to the existing deadbolt lock. Only the thumb latch will need to be changed. The exterior and actual lock cylinder/casing remains. Install the Friday Lock by removing your existing thumb latch and installing the Friday Lock using the same screws and mounting holes.
We've put together some videos to help explain how to install your Friday Lock in detail. You can watch the videos if you click on each of the steps shown below.
Step 1. Uninstall old thumb turn, keep the screws.
Step 2. Measure tailpiece with slider. Max length 8mm. Shorten if needed. Or use the Door Adaptor Plate in the bottom of the pack to reduce the length.
Step 3. Rotate the Friday Lock until you find the green and red holes.
Step 4. Screw the Friday Lock with the old screws. If the hole in your door is too big, use the Door Adaptor Plate in the bottom of the pack.
Step 5. Rotate the Friday Lock to desired open and closed orientation and install the tailpiece adaptor.
Step 6. Insert the battery.
The calibration of your door and more specifically the degrees that you need to turn to reach a locked position changes per region.
As a general rule, the lock can only manually move freely ~90 degrees before it will encounter some resistance. This is totally normal and you can try to turn the lock manually past these resistance points. The motor moves gears internally in a different way and should not encounter the same resistance.
For example, if you have a Swedish lock that requires 360 degrees until it locks please follow the below instructions for the calibration process:
If you turn on the inside more than 170 degrees it will activate the stop part and although it does not feel natural you can force it to happen. Once the firmware has captured both the lock and unlock positions then the motor will operate those actions via the Friday App.
You can calibrate with a smooth (without forcing) operation of 170 degrees and with the combination of a key usage. To do so, please use the key to turn the lock to the locked position when asked, then use the lock itself to turn the lock to the open position (by rotating up to a maximum 170 degrees).
When you leave the house, the lock will turn only 170 degrees via the Friday Lock. If you want to use the key when you arrive at home, you can just open and take out the key in the first position. But if you want to lock then you will need to pass the over torque at least one time (to reach 340 degrees).
If after reading the above you are still having issues with the calibration please try the below:
You can remove the lock battery and the tailpiece adapter (gear piece) and make sure that the motor can freely turn the to both the open and closed calibrated positions. If the motor is able to turn the lock freely it seems that something is causing the motor to struggle - i.e. the tail piece is jamming.
Your lock should turn at least to approximately the right open/closed positions without the tailpiece adapter in place.
