Q: What is the difference between the QET170 and QET180 night latch escutcheon?
A: The QET170 is an ANSI 03 night latch function where the lever is always locked and the key is used to retract the latch. The QET180 is an ANSI 09 night latch function where the lever is locked and the key is used to unlock the lever. The lever is then used to retract the latch. The key can only be removed when the lever is locked.
Q: When should the QET170 be used as opposed to the QET180?
A: The QET170 is not recommended for use on QED100 vertical rod devices because the key torque may not be enough to retract the latch. As an alternative solution, we recommend using the QET180 for vertical rod devices as the lever is used to retract the latch.
Q: What lever styles are offered for the QET100?
A: The QET100 has 2 lever styles (i.e., Sierra, Summit). The Slate lever will be coming available in May 2015.
Q: Do you have to specify handing when ordering a QED100 or QET100?
A: The QED100 exit device is non-handed, so you can simply flip it around to fit the specific application. The QET100 exit trim is shipped non-handed, so the handing can be configured at the point of installation to fit the respective application.
