DC256 - DC256 clutch thumbturn


Designed for use on individual bedrooms or bathrooms within mental health secure accommodation, young offenders units, etc. Permit clients to lock the door for privacy, while allowing authorised staff to gain entry. Avoids the problem with conventional thumbturns where clients can prevent the door being unlocked by gripping the internal turn.

Available in satin chrome finish.


Clutch thumbturn. Includes cylinder ring supplied in two sizes, 13mm and 18mm. Rounded design to minimise risk of injury and prevent the attachment of ligatures. May be used to operate the lock normally. However, if the thumbturn is gripped to prevent the door being unlocked, the internal sprung clutch mechanism will release allowing a key to turn in the cylinder and operate the lock.
