Why can't I lock my AL53 or ND53 lock with a key?

The AL53 and ND53 is not designed to be locked from the outside with a key.

Key operation:

  • When the button is pushed then the key will unlock the outside lever.
  • When the button is pushed and turned the the key will only retract the latch allowing ingress but the outside lever stays locked.
