How it Works: Classroom function on Grade 1 and 2 Levers and Knobs

The Classroom function is found on Grade 1 and Grade 2 commercial locks and will work the same, whether it's a lever or a knob. It uses a clutch function lever, meaning when I pull the lever down, the latch won't activate. Check the link for some more information on that.

HOW IT WORKS (INSIDE OF THE DOOR)

Like all commercial locks, pushing down or pulling up the lever will retract the latch because there is no button or mortise cylinder for a key function.

 

HOW IT WORKS (OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR)

Since it is used in classroom settings where the doors are locked, the teacher comes to the class, insert and turn the key by 360 degrees, pull it out, and it's going to open. It's going to stay open until you stick the key back in and you rotate it 360 degrees, and it's going to be locked.

 

The Classroom function is pretty simple. You can keep it where it's always locked, or it's permanently unlocked, and how you activate either one of those is you're going to stick the key in, you're going to rotate it 360 degrees, and you can unlock it or lock it.

That's the Classroom Function and how it works. Thanks, and we'll see you next time.
