London Bar Information

 

Kickstop London Bar 

To reinforce a wooden door frame fitted with a surface mounted rim lock or nightlatch.

 

Traditional wooden door frames will splinter and split open during a forced attack.  A burglary victim, following a 'kick in' attack, would often find that the door frame and rim lock security had not been able to resist the attack and had failed.

To counter this problem, the police and other crime prevention specialists very highly recommend the London Bar to strengthen and reinforce the door frame and fit over the rim lock or cylinder nightlatch.  It is easy to fit, is used with existing locks and provides extremely effective additional security every time the door is closed and locked.

A packet of 2 1/2" long, No. 10 hardened steel woodscrews is supplied. 

 

  • The Kickstop London Bar is a door frame reinforcing solid steel bar with a 'D' shaped staple to fit over the staple (keep) of a surface fitted rim lock or cylinder nightlatch.  This very effective steel anti-burglary device is screwed on to the internal face of the lock side of the frame and will resist the kicking, splitting and forcing open of the door
  • 5mm thick solid steel bar with a rounded edge and countersunk holes
  • 24" (610mm), 72" (1830mm) or 78" (1980mm) long
  • 5/8" (16mm) or 3/4" (20mm) wide
  • Standard (30x70mm) , Large (30x97mm), Extra Large (40x105mm), Universal (30x70-97mm) or Ingersoll SC71 (modified 30x70mm) staple size
  • NB: The staple of the London Bar (the 'D' shaped part) is available in three main sizes. Standard, Large and Extra Large. The purchaser must be aware that there are 100's of rim lock and nightlatch staple shapes and sizes in use in and the London Bar Staple is only designed to fit over the lock staple and is not designed to provide a contour hugging tight fit.
  • NB: The London Bar staple has to fit OVER the surface mounted rim lock staple (keep) - the part of the rim lock that is screwed onto the frame.  Take correct measurements in order to choose the appropriate London Bar staple size. Not one that is too small.
  • The Universal size staple is designed for customers who are not sure whether to purchase a Standard or Large size. 

Traditional Style Standard Yale 77 Nightlatch - shown for illustration purposes only 

The Staple (or the keep) is the metal part of the rim lock or nightlatch that is screwed onto the door frame

 

 

  • NB: Rim locks and nightlatches are fitted at slightly different heights on individual doors.  When fitting the 72" and 78" length London Bars, a little of the top or the bottom of the London Bar will probably need to be removed when fitting. The surplus can be cut off with a hacksaw.
  • The 'D' shaped bend in the two longer London Bars is positioned at the approximate height of where most surface mounted nightlatches should normally be fitted.
  • The 72" bar is approximately 6" shorter than the height of a door frame - to help avoid the need to hacksaw off a piece of the bar if sliding bolts or other fittings are already fitted at top or bottom.

 

Before ordering the Kickstop London Bar

 

Check the Staple Size - Width of Bar - Length of Bar

  • The London Bar is a door frame reinforcer and is designed to strengthen and reinforce a timber door frame
  • The London Bar is designed to fit OVER the rim lock staple (keep) of many different brands, shapes and sizes of rim lock
  • The London Bar staples will fit OVER most rim lock staples that are the same size (or smaller) than the London Bar staple itself
  • Choose the correct London Bar staple size to fit OVER your fitted lock staple - Standard, Large, Extra Large or Ingersoll
  • NB: The London Bar staple is not designed to 'hug the contours' of the rim lock staple (keep) as there are too many rim locks on the market
  • NB: A rim lock staple may have (or may require) packing under it (for thicker door) or wood removed - in order to to recess it a little.
  • NB: Any additional amount of added or removed wood will increase or decrease the size of the fitted lock staple and an appropriate sized London Bar will then be required. 30mm or 40mm sizes are available.
  • The 'Universal' staple size is available to fit OVER both a standard size or large size rim lock staple.
  • Check the available width of door frame and then choose the appropriate width of London Bar. 16mm or 20mm widths are available
  • The available width of door frame may be minimal due to architrave - if necessary, the architrave could be reduced in width by the fitter
  • Choose the length of London Bar required. 24" (610mm), 72" (1830mm) or 78" (1980mm) are available
  • The two longer London Bars have the staple position at about two thirds of the overall length
  • The top or bottom of the London Bar can be cut to fit - with a hacksaw
  • The short (24" - 610mm) London Bar has the staple positioned in the middle of the bar
  • Choose the colour required, 78" (white or dark bro - 72" (white) - 24" (white, Dark brown or brasslux)
