Polished Brass Thumb Turn and Emergency Release 50mm
A turn and release consists of a turn button and an emergency release slot connected by a narrow spindle. They are used on bathroom/bedroom doors or where privacy is required. The turn and release is used in conjunction with a door knob or lever and can be fitted with either a bathroom lock or a mortice deadbolt. When used with a mortice deadbolt, you will also require a mortice or tubular latch for use with the knob/lever. The turn button is fitted on the inside of the door and when operated deadlocks the door. The emergency release slot is fitted to the outside of the door and is usually operated by a coin or screwdriver. The turn and release is normally specified to have a matching finish to the door handles and is supplied complete with the spindle and fixing screws, but not with the bathroom lock or deadbolt which need to be purchased as a separate item, and are also normally specified to have a matching finish to the door handles.
