  • Remove the screw to disassemble the Adapter
  • Rotate the Cam so it is pointed downward, then insert the Cover and Cam into the mechanism where the profile cylinder would go
  • Once the Cover and Cam are in place, use a flat head screwdriver to rotate the Cam into operating position (with the Cam pointing upward)
  • AFTER YOU’VE ROTATED THE CAM UPWARD, insert the Body from the opposite side of the mechanism and use the provided screw to secure the entire Adapter in place

American Cylinder Adapter Instructions

***For compatibility with Multi Point Mechanisms from other hardware manufacturers, we recommend purchasing a test Adapter before purchasing large quantities.***

***PLEASE NOTE: This adapter allows the Cam to travel only 90 degrees.  So it will NOT work with mechanisms that require a complete 360 degree turn.***
