Cover Lock Information

The Cover Lock Key (Detex P/N: ECL-405)

All Detex cover locks and keys will have the letters DT followed by a three digit number. The key number should always match the cover lock number (i.e. DT013, as shown on the ECL-230D below, would match key number DT013).

On the ECL-230D / ECL-230D-PH / ECL-600, the cover lock is found on the front of the device towards the bottom (or top depending on the handing of the device).

Please note, on older ECL-230D / ECL-230D-PH / ECL-600 models, the cover lock will be located on the top or bottom side (once again, depending on handing of the device).

On all ECL-230X models, the cover lock is found on the left or right (depending on the handing of the device) of the device head.

EA-500 / EAX-500

On the EA-500 and on the EAX-500, the cover lock is found on the front of the device towards the top. It is smaller than the cylinder located at the bottom of the device.

EA-2500

On both surface and flush mounted EA-2500, the cover lock is located on the front of the device towards the top. It is smaller than the cylinder located at the bottom of the device.
