SDC Quiet DUO™ ELR Kit
Security Door Controls (SDC) has introduced the LR100VDK and the LR100VD Electric Latch Retraction (ELR) Kits for compatible Von Duprin panic and fire rated exit devices. When the motor driven (460 mA inrush) Quiet DUO LR100VD is energized, the exit device latch retracts, pulling the push pad into the dogged position. The SDC LR100VD can be configured for momentary or sustained latch retraction in order to gain access. This ELR is compatible with Von Duprin 98/99 including XP Series, 33/35 Series and 22 Series exit devices.

For non-fire rated devices, this UL Recognized Component is field installable and has a five-year warranty. The LR100VD must be factory installed to gain the UL Listing for 3 hour fire rated exit devices. When shipped, it is no longer a Von Duprin exit device. It is officially a UL Listed SDC Product with a five-year warranty for both the mechanical exit device and electric latch retraction/dogging.

Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan
This month we will offer recommended car-opening techniques for the 2006-2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan and the 2006 Lincoln Zephyr. These four-door, mid-sized cars are equipped with totally shielded bicycle style cables instead of linkage rods inside the doors.
Important: These vehicles are equipped with multi-layer weather stripping that fits very tight.
Important: Failure to remove wedges prior to bringing the tool into the passenger compartment can result in the breaking of the window glass.

The following opening methods can be used to unlock the 2006-2010 Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, and the 2006 Lincoln Zephyr.

Use the High Tech Tools Tool Long Inside Access #89 and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Insert the wedge just behind the inside lock release handle. Insert the Long Inside Access tool into the door cavity with the tip facing forward. Remove the wedge in order for the tool to slide into the door cavity. Lower the tool and rotate when it is beneath the bottom of the window glass. Carefully raise the tool until it can just be seen through the window. Stop and remove the wedge. Rotate the tool until the tip is on the passenger compartment side of the glass. Carefully raise the car opening tool until the tip is in the passenger compartment. Carefully manipulate the tool until it is positioned in front of the door lock button. Push the front of the button to unlock the locking mechanism. Carefully remove the tool according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Use the HPC CO-87 opening tool and a mechanical wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the mechanical wedge above the front passenger door and adjust to wedge out an opening. Insert the sleeve between the rear edge of the doorframe and the body. Insert the CO-87 car-opening tool into the passenger compartment through the sleeve. Position the tip of the tool on the electric lock switch or button, or hook the inside handle and pull to unlock the door locking mechanism. Carefully remove the tool according to manufacturer’s instructions.
