FAQ - Dimensions & Mounting Studs
No, the longest screws we stock are 2.00 long.
Traditional style pushbuttons require a minimum clearance of 2.00 deep.
Innovation I-Line? pushbuttons require a minimum clearance of 1.125 deep.
With the exception of the flat fire service I-Line? keyswitch, our standard barrel-type keyswitches require a minimum clearance of 2.75. Custom made and specialty keyswitches vary.
Innovation I-Line? fixtures mount flush to the wall, and project 1.375 from the surface.
Most standard fixtures mount to wall boxes that are 3.50 deep.
If you can use one of our standard barrel-type locks, and if the box is at least 2.75 deep and if there is sufficient room for the device on the faceplate, our PB13 style keyswitches will mount quickly and easily even if there are no factory weld studs. The only field modification required is to drill a round hole .75 in diameter. The kit will come with adhesive-backed anti-rotation plates for either horizontal or vertical mount, and a surface-mounted 1.375 diameter escutcheon for identification. These are available on-line in the Parts Department.
No, at the current time, there is no way to add one of our pushbuttons without also providing welded studs to which to attach it.
