The factory default setup for the Turner Deadbolt Lock is right hand. The collar should be able to turn counterclockwise in order to extend the bolt.
To change the hand of the deadbolt collar and torque blade position to left hand:
Step 1. Unscrew the carrier screw. When in the factory (right hand) setup, the carrier screw is to the bottom right of the horizontal torque blade.
Step 2. Turn the collar approximately 90 degrees clockwise until the collar finger is directly over the left hand carrier screw hole.
Step 3. Install the carrier screw, making sure the tip enters the hole in the carrier.
Step 4. Rotate the torque blade to position the actuator tip adjacent to the carrier screw. The torque blade should be vertical when the deadbolt lock has been converted to operate on a left hand door. Test the operation of the collar. The collar should only be able to turn clockwise.
