Great construction but a pain in the rear to install for a novice handyman and homeowner. The templates are useless since I could just simply use the hardware for drill holes but used the cardboard templates anyway. I struggled with lining up both the locking mechanism and the latch where it would close without grinding any metal pieces amongst the spring loaded pins. Are used some old hardwood from some cabinets that I saved that finally came in handy since my cabinet is not flush with the opening door. I’m sure I would get better with practice but found out that I was close to my measurement by simply using the double-sided tape on the locking mechanism while it was locked on the latch and then close the door. And then I opened it with the RFID keychain master card and mounted the locking mechanism box. It still wasn’t perfect so I suggest that since gravity is working against you, slightly move the locking box an eighth or a quarter of an inch in the opposite direction; in my case, upwards since I have a vertically opening door.
IMPORTANT: Will not self-open door with basic hardware. Mind you, I even wanted to install a cheap gas strut or spring-loaded push latch so it would open when I would swipe the RF ID card. The lock is spring loaded so any tension against the door or locking mechanism WILL NOT allow the door to open unless you push it to release the internal springs of the locking mechanism.
After through some troubleshooting of installation, the unit works flawlessly with both the 2 keychains and the 3 RFID cards.
I even ordered a 13.56 MHZ metal ring for the fun of it for sleekness to open the cabinet since there’s a locking box can program several other RFID cards.
You won’t be disappointed.
Check out the video. I am very pleased.
